Overweight & Gravel Permits
Please contact Road Data Services for all Overweight Permits for the RM of Britannia No.502
The RM of Britannia #502 is committed to keeping an open conversation between our team, and the people whom use our roads.
The RM has decided to let Road Data Services look after the paperwork of permits. If the RM of Britannia decides it needs to ban a road, we will ban particular roads as needed, and let Road Data Services know so that they can pass that information along. We will continue to send these mass emails when road conditions need special attention.
The Department of Highways has reduced the weights allowed on their provincial highways to secondary weights. Our RM, allows any individual power unit (truck), that has an annual primary weight permit from Road Data Services to haul primary weight on RM roads. If required, overweight permits can be attained for single day trips in the same manner.

Road Maintenance Agreement (RMA)
The construction and maintenance of a municipal transportation system is one of the most costly items involved in a municipal budget. When an excessive amount of wear and tear is put on municipal roads, it can cause thousands of dollars in additional maintenance costs.
According to The Municipalities Act, a municipal Council may require any person to enter into an agreement with the municipality to provide funds to cover additional maintenance of any municipal road within the municipality.
For short term hauls, the contractor shall pay the compensation with 60 days of the completion of the haul, based on verified quantities.
For on going hauls, the contractor shall pay the compensation in on a monthly basis, based on verified quantities.
Please note, If you will be hauling primary weight, you will need to obtain an overweight permit from Road Data. You can contact Road Data at 1-888-730-3745
