A contract for the supply, installation, and maintenance of a Mainline Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Sorter System and complements the weigh station operation located 1 km east bound of the Confederation Bridge. The WIM Sorter System will sort inbound commercial vehicles exiting the Confederation Bridge on a single lane highway on Route1. During strong winds, the bridge is closed to traffic for as long as 12 hours. When the bridge is reopened there is the potential for 300-400 trucks to be waiting to report to the station. The WIM Sorter System will direct commercial vehicles that are potentially in violation of dimension and weight compliance limits to report to the weigh station. Commercial vehicles which are not in violation can bypass the station, or at the option of the weigh station operators can still be directed to report for further weighing or inspection. IRD’s solution will significantly reduce commercial vehicle wait times and improve operating costs for compliant vehicles.
The Prince Edward Island Department of Transportation and Public Works has been very pleased with the operation of the Mainline WIM and the accrued benefits.
