In 2021 we used data from nearly 2/3rds of all authorities to keep the map up-to-date
UK & RoI roads mapped
Our database contains speed limits for all public roads totalling over 1/3rd million km
Our data is used in millions of vehicles to help drivers stay aware of speed limits
updates every year
We make thousands of updates every week which are validated and sent to customers each quarter
The most accurate and up-to-date data on UK speed limits
SpeedMap is a project with the aim of producing a national speed limit database for the UK and Republic of Ireland which can be used with any digital map.
Ten years ago we recognised the need for an accurate map to support innovation in road safety – without being tied to a costly proprietary mapping solution.
Our data is sourced from a multitude of datasets and boasts 100% coverage of the UK and RoI road network.
Since supplying the first version to a telematics startup in 2012, SpeedMap has become the number one choice for companies who need speed limit data.
Our dataset is used by global mapping providers, delivery companies, utility providers, insurance companies, as well as those providing in-vehicle systems. We make our data accessible, reliable and exploitable for your commercial needs, as well as putting the data in the hands of those responsible for making our roads safer.
Total UK & RoI network coverage
Our analysis of speed limits on the road network is comprehensive; we will even include advisory limits on private roads where we are made aware of limits lower than 20mph / 30kmh
Independently reviewed and assessed
We want to achieve 100% accuracy across the entire network with an increased update frequency which is why we invest heavily in our update processes.
Network independent and platform neutral
Whether you are using a commercially-supplied network or open-source, SpeedMap can be supplied in a format to suit your needs.
A solution for all sectors
- Telematic insurance providers who are measuring incidents of excess speed,
- Large logistic firms planning routes
- Blue-chip companies who provide their own mapping solutions
- Enforcement agencies identifying low-compliance locations
- Local authorities without their own digital map
- Researchers examining road risk on the network
The SpeedMap dataset is available through these channels:

Speed limit maps for vehicles
As the adoption of new vehicle technologies to limit vehicle speeds becomes more common, car manufacturers need to ensure their systems are accurate and up-to-date.
HERE Technologies, the leading location data and technology platform, use our speedmap database for the UK and Republic of Ireland to support their ISA Map, delivering vehicle systems and drivers fresh and accurate speed limit information on any road.
Combining datasets to understand risk
Speed limit information, when combined with telematics data using vehicle speeds from GPS tracks, provides an excellent opportunity for road authorities and enforcement agencies to asess road sections with poor compliance.
Agilysis have been providing simple, yet powerful tools to decision makers using this data for the last three years via an online portal.
