SALISBURY, N.B. –The New Brunswick Climate Action Fund (NBCAF) has funded the installation of a weigh-in-motion system at the eastbound Salisbury scales, which will weigh transport trucks at highway speeds. The $500,000 investment will reduce fuel consumed by trucks by allowing the majority of them to pass by the scale without slowing down. It’s expected the weigh-in-motion system will save 4,000 tonnes of greenhous gas emissions each year. Weigh-in-motion systems are already deployed at Longs Creek, Deerwood, Waweig and Salisbury West. The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association was naturally pleased with the investment.

“Our carriers are always very conscientious when it comes to the environment, and they are continuously focusing their efforts on how they can save fuel and reduce GHG emissions. Initiatives such as this are always great news for the industry,” said APTA’s Jean-Marc Picard.
