All ADR transports are limited in speed in Belgium (source:

Built up areas: 40 km/h
Highways: 85 km/h
Secondary roads: 70 km/h (this page probably isn't yet updated with the latest speed change which stipulates 60 km/h max for secondary roads and normal truck transport). I assume it would be 55 if things were kept consistent, but that's a dangerous assumption :-)

Wikipedia sources are not always fully reliable xD (Spain is quite bad...)

Urban areas: 50 km/h
Road with narrow hard shoulders: 90 km/h
Road with wide hard shoulders: 100 km/h
Highways / Freeways / Motorways: 120 km/h

How do we know if a road has a narrow or a wide hard shoulder? If it measures 1,50 m or more is wide. If not, is narrow.

In the UK, I believe all trucks are speed limited to 56 mph (91/92 kph)

Red = cars | Blue = trucks | Green = Cars and trucks

Residential areas

Built-up areas

Local (L) and regional (R) roads | (≥3.5t) National (N) roads (primary and secondary)

(≥3.5t) Motorways (M)

National (N) roads (primary and secondary)

Motorways (M)

Speed limits are indicated with signs (sounds obvious but I don't know why the '?' is there). Primary national roads (N1 - N50) usually have hard shoulders, secondary national roads (N51 onwards) usually don't. The M50 around Dublin has a speed limit of 100km/h (for cars), despite being a motorway.
