Speed limits

20mph speed limits

From September 2023, a new default 20mph speed limit will apply to roads in Welsh cities, towns and villages that have street lights.

National speed limits apply to most of the roads in Denbighshire. Unless you see signs showing otherwise, the speed limits are:

  • 30mph in a street-lit area
  • 60mph on a single carriageway road without street-lighting
  • 70mph on a dual carriageway road without street-lighting

Different speed limits apply to certain types of vehicle, such as buses, heavy goods vehicles and cars towing caravans. Find out more about speed limits on GOV.UK (external website).
