Expect Disruptions in Traffic and Utility Services Between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. From January 7 to January 11 in Areas Between the Port of Hamilton and Toronto's Pearson Airport

CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 4, 2011) - Challenger wishes to advise the travelling public and residents who live or work between the Port of Hamilton and Toronto's Pearson airport to expect disruptions in traffic and utility services between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. on the following dates January 7, 8 9, 10 and 11, 2010.

Six oversized pieces of equipment must be transported by truck from the port of Hamilton to their destination near Toronto's Pearson airport between January 7 and January 11, 2010, during the evening and overnight hours only.

Each load is 150ft (length) x 24ft (width) x 27ft (high), which will require disruptions in traffic and utility services to ensure safe transportation of the equipment as well as the safety of the transportation team and the general public.

Although Challenger, the company responsible for moving the equipment, has worked closely with all stakeholders and has mapped out a route of minimal impact for the general public and local residents along the transportation route, it wants to advise the general public of these disruptions, so people have the opportunity to plan accordingly.

Please visit our website at for a detailed route map and for the latest update of where the trucks are currently located.
