Manitoba Trans-Canada speed limit goes up to 110 km/h today

The province announced in April the speed limit on the Trans-Canada Highway west of Winnipeg would be increased to 110 km/h from 100 km/h effective June 2 to allow for better traffic flow.

Faster speed allowed on twinned sections of the highway, from Winnipeg to the Saskatchewan border
