IRD to supply pre-screening stations for Canada's Regina Bypass project
International Road Dynamics (IRD) has secured a contract to supply four commercial vehicle pre-screening stations for the C$1.88bn ($1.5bn) Regina Bypass project in Saskatchewan, Canada.
IRD is a wholly owned subsidiary of investment holding company Quarterhill.
The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure (MHI) will monitor and screen commercial vehicles based on weights and dimensions using these pre-screening stations.
IRD president and CEO Terry Bergan said: "The pre-screening systems will assist the Saskatchewan MHI to control overweight commercial vehicles and preserve the highway infrastructure throughout the life of the Regina Bypass."
Under the C$1.95m ($1.55m) contract, IRD will supply and install an integrated system using its bending plate weigh-in-motion (WIM) scales with licence plate readers and cameras.
Set to be positioned at various points along the Regina Bypass, the pre-screening systems will be remotely linked and controlled from a data management centre.
The public-private partnership Regina Bypass project includes 12 overpasses, a 60km stretch of four-lane highway, and 55km of new service roads.
