Installation begins this week on two variable speed limit systems for the Fraser Valley, to help reduce crashes and keep people and goods moving safely and efficiently.

A new congestion-based speed limit system, the first use of this type of technology for B.C., will be installed on a 24-kilometre section of Highway 1 between Sumas River Bridge in Abbotsford and the Prest Road overpass in Chilliwack.

This is a heavily travelled section of Highway 1 that has a high number of rear-end collisions. The new system will lower the speed limit to slow people down before traffic reaches a stop-and-go situation, helping to reduce the number of collisions that occur when drivers do not notice vehicles that have stopped on the highway.
