BRITISH Columbians now have more access to bird’s-eye-view webcams to help plan their travel ahead of time, thanks to 11 new cameras and 40 new webcam views added to the DriveBC highway camera network.

“Planning ahead and checking conditions before hitting the road is important for safe travel, and the DriveBC network is a tremendous tool for drivers,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Claire Trevena on Tuesday. “These new webcams and views mean people have even more resources at their disposal, no matter where their travels take them, especially in the winter months.”

There are now nearly 700 highway webcam views at more than 380 locations throughout B.C., giving travellers easy access to weather, road and traffic conditions with near real-time coverage.

The following are some of the new cameras and views added around the province:

The Province is encouraging people to check before they head out on the roads and highways to make sure they know before they go.

DriveBC is the B.C. government’s most popular website, with an average of more than two million visits per month.
