Share the Road This Harvest Season

GOVTFall is upon us and harvest is underway.  People traveling Saskatchewan roads are reminded to be patient and watch for farm equipment so their trips are safe this season.

“Agriculture is the backbone of the provincial economy and we want to ensure that families hard at work this harvest season get home safely,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said.  “Please remain patient and watch for slow-moving or oversized farm equipment to avoid collisions.”

Farmers can avoid delays by checking for highway construction on the Highway Hotline.

If you have questions or need technical advice about whether your farm equipment is too heavy for a certain road or you are not clear about what safety measures are required while moving machinery, producers can go to the website http://www.highways.gov.sk.ca/transportingfarmequipment or call 1-866-933-5290. The inquiry line operates weekdays, except statuary holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
