“I think that within the next month we will most likely take this decision (to increase the speed limit),” RIA Novosti quoted Khusnullin as saying.

He noted that several consultations were held with the traffic police on the subject of road safety and quality.

“We are considering exactly this option on the M11 highway to St. Petersburg and are considering this option on the M4 - the Don highway,” added the Deputy Prime Minister.

Earlier, Oleg Ponaryin, deputy head of the MIA GUOBDD, considers it possible to increase the threshold for the maximum speed limit on high-speed road sections to 130 km / h, and with the development of standardization for highway maintenance - up to 150 km / h.
