Faster, easier travel for commercial vehicles

Commercial drivers on the Lower Mainland are benefiting from time and fuel savings, thanks to the Weigh2GoBC program and cutting-edge technology.

 

The ministry has 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. 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.

 

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