On behalf of the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources and Ledcor Highways Ltd., the road restrictions on the SYD Road from km 8.4 to km 188 will be lifted as of 6am, Friday June 4th.
Ledcor Highways Ltd. has entered into a three year Road Maintenance Agreement with The British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines, and Petroleum Resources to maintain the Sierra Yoyo Desan (SYD) Road. The SYD Road is a public resource road primarily used to access the oil and gas resources in the northeastern region of British Columbia.
The 188-km long SYD multi-user resource road provides the main access to over 27,000 square kilometers of oil, gas, and forestry terrain in northeast BC. It connects to the end of the 15 km Clarke Lake Road, which joins the Alaska Highway just south of Fort Nelson.
The SYD Resource Road is open to the general public, although it is mainly used for servicing and supplying the oil and gas industry. Standards for road maintenance are set by the Ministry of Energy and Mines and carried out by Ledcor Highway Ltd. The 15 km Clarke Lake portion is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transportation.
