VANCOUVER, B.C. — Banning container trucks from Nanaimo Street near Port Metro Vancouver is creating traffic chaos in the area, according to local news reports.

Vancouver’s News1130 reports the shifting of truck traffic to alternative routes is interfering with commuters and causing back-ups.

Peter Xotta, Port Metro Vancouver spokesman, told the radio station it may be time to consider improving entry points at the port, a comment that was greeted with enthusiasm by B.C. Trucking Association head Louise Yako.

The 90-day pilot project eliminating truck traffic from Nanaimo Street concludes in November.

    I understand that Port Metro recently scraped a plan that would have seen the use of GPS technology to help stream line pick up and deliveries at the ports. As a part of the project I understand the reservation systems used to book these pick-ups and deliveries would have also been integrated and real-time automated messaging would have been used to notify drivers if there were changes in reservation times… Sounded like a good idea. Would have reduced traffic, wait times, idling and increased efficiencies with in the port.
