Truck Route Network

In Surrey, truck travel is restricted to the truck route network, except when a truck’s origin or destination is not located on the network. In those cases, a truck must take the shortest route from the network to their destination and back.

Surrey’s truck route network consists of provincial and regional highways and strategic City arterial roads. It is a subset of our arterial road network and a schedule to the Highway and Traffic Bylaw.

The integrity of the truck route network is vital to the economic development and vitality of Surrey. It supports the competitiveness of our businesses and boosts productivity and access to local, national, and international markets.

Truck Route Network Background

Prior to 1999, all arterial roads were truck routes. In 1999, a specific truck route network was developed, including a large public consultation process. At the same time, TransLink (the regional transportation authority) and the regional Major Road Network were created. Under the provincial South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Act, TransLink has regulatory authority over the truck route network.
