WATCH: Do you want to drive faster?

Ontario's transportation minister is raising the possibility of increasing speed limits on provincial highways.

Jeff Yurek says he will announce consultations next week on speed limits, which will include some pilot projects using different maximum speeds.

Yurek says he'll give more details then, but he says today that the 400-series highways, which have speed limits of 100 kilometres an hour, were designed to have vehicles travelling at 120 kilometres an hour.

He says another consultation to be launched soon will look at the rules of the road for bicycles, e-bikes and scooters.

Yurek teased the consultations in a speech today in which he announced that he will introduce legislation Thursday that would give the province ownership of future subway expansion projects in Toronto's transit system.

He says the upcoming bill would mean transit can get built faster and the government can focus on a regional network.
