Road Use Agreements

The Access and Work Agreement is a Wheatland County prerequisite for all contractors and utility companies that work at County Road Allowances. The contract authorizes the contractor / distribution company to work in the indicated area; ensures that the contractor/distribution company has general liability insurance and designates Wheatland County as an additional insured; and it contains guidelines for the contractor/distribution company to follow when performing their work. If you do not receive a road use agreement, you may be fined under the Leduc County Transportation By-law. Wetaskiwin County`s road infrastructure is intended for public use and Wetaskiwin County recognizes that the economy and industry (resource/extraction) depend on road infrastructure. Sometimes the demands placed on road traffic often exceed the capacity of roads, which can damage the pavement and make it dangerous. Road use agreements contribute to the protection of road infrastructure and allow businesses and businesses to access transport routes and road infrastructure. Road use agreements are site-specific and apply to journeys inside and outside the site, as concrete pump vehicles cannot drive below 100% weight per axle.
