Tour Groups & Operators
Notice to Tour Operators
The Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) will begin rehabilitation work to the Canadian Niagara Power (CNP) Bridge this week in Queen Victoria Park until May, 2013. Further, in preparation for the Red Bull Crashed Ice Event, Murray Street will be closed to all vehicular Traffic as of November 6, 2012 until December 7, 2012. Please be advised this work will cause some traffic delays.
Presently, the CNP bridge will be reduced to two lanes only (one north bound and one south bound lane). Operators can expect in the near future to see the bridge reduced to only one lane on the east side (northbound lane) of the bridge. Opposing traffic will be managed by temporary traffic lights.
Table Rock Bus Management will remain open at this time to service Tour Operators as per normal operations. *Should the construction or weather become a significant factor on the Parkway, Bus Management may be moved to the WEGO Transportation bus loop (next to Bus Management.) NPC will provide further notification on Bus Management procedures should this occur.
To assist Tour Operators accessing Niagara Parks lands, attractions and light displays in Queen Victoria Park, NPC makes the following recommendation as a preferred route to reduce the amount of time spent in construction:
Enter the Niagara Parkway from the south via Portage Road or Upper Rapids Boulevard.
If conducting a Light Tour of the Winter Festival of Lights, turn left into Dufferin Islands to complete this area of the tour then turn left and proceed north.
Once through the construction on the CNP bridge, turn into Table Rock Bus Management for licensing and access to Table Rock Welcome Centre.
Once completed at Table Rock, continue north to Clifton Hill to leave the Niagara Parkway for the City of Niagara Falls or proceed north to continue along the Niagara Parkway.
NPC thanks you for your patience with us as we restore the beautiful and historic CNP bridge and begin the preparation work for the exciting Red Bull Crashed Ice event to come later this month. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the NPC Sales Department.
