Industry Celebrates Vote on Gardiner

“Today’s vote showed leadership and vision on the part of Mayor John Tory and supporting members of City Council,” said OTA’s Senior VP Stephen Laskowski. “All Ontarians, both those who reside inside and outside of the City of Toronto, will benefit from council’s decision to support the hybrid redesign, which is without question the safest, most efficient, and least disruptive option for city traffic and Toronto’s economy.”

Three new cameras are located on the Sea-to-Sky Highway from Squamish to Function Junction, five on the Coquihalla from Portia Interchange to the Britton Creek Rest Area, and four on the Trans-Canada Highway from Perry River to Revelstoke.
The cameras are also an important resource for operators at the Regional Transportation Management Centre in Coquitlam who monitor conditions along routes like these prone to rapidly changing weather.
