NEW – BC: Weigh2GoBC program to save commercial drivers time, fuel and money
The BC government says its new Weigh2GoBC program benefits commercial drivers by saving them time, fuel, and money. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure recently installed weigh-in-motion strip sensors in all six lanes of Highway 91, southbound toward the Nordel Inspection Station, including the on-ramp from Cliveden Avenue and the counter-flow lane. This allows commercial drivers, who are registered and approved for the Weigh2GoBC program and pass a credential check, the opportunity to bypass the Nordel Inspection Station. The sensors weigh, measure and screen vehicles for safety requirements at highway speeds.
Eleven stations participate in the Weigh2GoBC Program, and industry enrolment consists of 488 carriers and more than 5,000 vehicles. For more information about Weigh2GoBC, or to register online, click here.
