INTRODUCING OUR NEW TRUCK ROUTE
In Spring of 2022, a new Truck Route Bylaw was established to separate routes depending on the loads that are carried through the City of Swift Current, creating a:
• Heavy Vehicle Route - A Heavy Vehicle Route is an assigned route within the City that vehicles exceeding 9000kg must follow. Vehicles are allowed to deviate from the route for the purposes of pick up/deliveries, fueling or service. However, they must travel by most direct route to and from the Heavy Vehicle Route.
• Over-dimensional Route - Specific route with maximum clearances intended for loads exceeding standard dimensions and weights. Dimensions match with Sask. Ministry of Highways & Infrastructure standards. Any vehicle requiring a permit from SGI will also require one from the city.
• Dangerous Goods Route - Intended for vehicles carrying materials identified as Dangerous Goods in bulk (Chemicals, fuel, etc.) These vehicles can deviate from the route only to make pickups or deliveries.
