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 counterflow lane.

Carriers and professional truck drivers who are registered and approved for the Weigh2GoBC program and pass a credential check may now be able to bypass the Nordel Inspection Station. The sensors weigh, measure and screen vehicles for safety requirements at highway speeds.

The Weigh2GoBC program allows commercial carriers to bypass Weigh2GoBC inspection stations if they get the “green light” to go ahead. The technology, combined with more modern facilities, helps the industry operate more efficiently.

Eleven stations participate in the Weigh2GoBC Program, and industry enrolment consists of 488 carriers and more than 5,000 vehicles.

The ministry estimates that reduced driver time and fuel costs have saved the industry more than $49 million. These include over 1.7 million litres in fuel savings from reduced idling at the stations and a reduction of over 3.2 million kilograms in greenhouse gas emissions.

As a reminder, carriers registered with Weigh2GoBC may also use PrePass bypassing in the US, subject to criteria from individual states, as well as PrePass electronic toll paying services. See the August 26, 2019, Bulletin article, “Weigh2GoBC & PrePass Reach Agreement” for details.
