Project Benefits

Improve safety and free flow of traffic, particularly trucks, to and from the Golden weigh scale. This weigh scale is designed to enable more efficient movement of commercial vehicles through the province. Once a commercial vehicle has been checked through this weigh scale, it can bypass all subsequent scales for up to 12 hours.
