Ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from the De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion and Works, the prov­ince has be­gun ex­pand­ing the Pro­vin­cial Plow Tracker ser­vice to high­ways in Labrador.

“The new tow plow and high­way cam­eras and the ex­pan­sion of the plow tracker ser­vice into Labrador are en­abling mo­torists to make more in­formed de­ci­sions be­fore they travel, but we al­ways re­mind ev­ery­one to drive to con­di­tions this win­ter,” said Steve Crocker, Min­is­ter of Trans­porta­tion and Works, in the re­lease. “I also take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the more than 700 peo­ple through­out the prov­ince who work nights and day on our high­ways, of­ten in dan­ger­ous, ter­ri­ble weather to keep peo­ple safe. We ap­pre­ci­ate the ser­vice you pro­vide.”

Western and cen­tral Labrador has now been added to the plow tracker while equip­ment in south­ern Labrador will be added in the com­ing weeks.

The Pro­vin­cial Plow Tracker, high­way cam­eras, driv­ing con­di­tions re­ports, and up­dates via the de­part­ment’s Twit­ter, @TW_GovNL, can be found at www.roads.gov.nl.ca.
