YELLOWKNIFE, NWT — A new bill in the Northwest Territories is requiring carriers to obtain trip permits before a commercial vehicle can cross prescribed boundaries.
Before crossing boundaries of prescribed zones on primary highways in the Territories, a trip permit must now be obtained from the Ministry of Transportation.
The permit will specify the commercial vehicle’s planned route.
The Alberta Motor Transport Association has a number of carriers who operate in the NWT, and they will be meeting to discuss a possible course of action. For more information, contact Al Smythe at 403-243-3767.
