Thaw period

Help us protect our roads



Each spring, the Ministry of Transport determines the dates of the thaw period for the three areas that make up the province.

During spring thaw, the road is more fragile than normal. Only one vehicle overload can cause him serious damage. By cons, a small decrease in costs significantly reduces the damage to the roadway. That's why loads of restrictions are imposed on heavy vehicles during a thaw. The thaw period is determined as a result of monitoring the progress of the thaw in the roadway.


Target customers

Users, owners and drivers of heavy vehicles, shippers and transportation intermediaries.
