During the cold winter months, secondary highways will be allowed to carry primary highway weights. Winter weights took effect on Dec. 3, for all applicable provincial highways, with the exception of southern Saskatchewan, which will come into effect when weather permits.
“As a landlocked province dependent on exports we need to be able to get our goods to market,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Lori Carr said. “When shippers can travel on secondary highways with primary weight, they are able to move more goods and help our economy grow.”
SHCA would like to thank everyone for attending the 2018 Annual Convention.
The Canadian Construction Association (CCA) and 100 of its members are gathered on Parliament Hill on Nov. 27, 2018, to meet with federal decision makers about the essential role the industry plays in the lives of Canadians. CCA is a 20,000 firm strong organization drawing membership from 63 local and provincial construction associations in every province and territory. Annually construction is responsible for nearly $119 billion in economic activity or seven per cent of Canada’s overall gross domestic product (GDP).
