India, Dec. 8 -- Speed limit on Yamuna Expressway is all set to be revised from next week. The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), the agency that is responsible for toll collection at the expressway, has said that the new speed limit will be implemented from December 15. The speed limit, applicable to all vehicles, will be only 75 kmph from thsi date to ensure road safety. This is about 25 kmph less than usual.
