Drivers of trucks with three or more axles are required by the Truck Route Bylaw [PDF - 337 KB] to traverse Langford only on the designated truck route, until the route brings them as close to their destination as possible. At that point drivers may leave the route and travel to their destination, returning to the truck route before continuing onward. Route roads are: the Trans Canada and Sooke Road for east-west travel; and Veteran's Memorial Parkway for north-south travel, and Langford Parkway leading from Veteran's Memorial westward toward the City's business parks.

Route enforcement utilizes methods ranging from traffic stops to dispatcher warning letters and educational mailing-outs to truck associations. Enforcement benefits the community by reducing noise and pedestrian hazards in neighbourhoods, and wear and tear on streets.Go to Top
