Regina, SK – February 21, 2024 – Alberta Transportation and Economic Corridors has announced the
approval of the All-Terrain Crane Pilot Project tested weights.

In a letter addressed to the Canadian Crane Rental Association (CCRA), the Honourable Devin Dreeshen,
Minister of Transportation and Economic Corridors writes: “Your industry’s dedication and commitment
to growing Alberta’s economy is greatly appreciated. Effective March 1, 2024, Transportation and
Economic Corridors will update its permitting policies to permanently allow increased weights for AT
Cranes on Alberta roads, aligning with the weights allowed during the project. This change will reduce red
tape for industry and provide certainty for your members on AT Cranes’ road operating requirements.”
The CCRA is proud to share this news as it took vision and Board commitment to lead a project of this
magnitude over decades.
“This is an important gain for our industry, and we thank everyone who invested countless hours and
company resources to support this initiative,” said CCRA Weights and Dimensions Committee Co-Chair
Justin Andrews.
The Weights and Dimensions Committee was formed in 2017, to address weights and dimensions in
Alberta and quickly expanded to other provinces. The effective model includes manufacturers, crane
rentals companies and engineers who provide ministries of transportation with industry information, data,
and research.
“We took a collaborative approach, with industry and with government,” added Mike Lavoie, Committee
Co-Chair. “We learned from one another, improved safety, reduced costs and saved lives” concluded
Lavoie.
