REVIEW OF CURRENT PERMITTING PRACTICES FOR EXTENDED LENGTH VEHICLES

In February 1988, a memorandum of understanding was signed by the Canadian council of ministers responsible for transportation and highway safety which set a maximum overall combination vehicle length of 23 metres for interprovincial operations. Currently, four Canadian provinces (Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta) allow the operation of extended length vehicles (in excess of 23 metres) by special permit on some highways. This report briefly describes the vehicle types that are currently permitted in the four provinces and describes certain combinations that can be operated across interprovincial boundaries. Appendix a of this document provides details on permit conditions in effect when the report was prepared.
