Production Underway on Discovery’s New Series Heavy Rescue: 401 from Highway Thru Hell producers

From a media release:

Discovery announced today that production is underway on HEAVY RESCUE: 401, a new original Canadian series set to debut in 2017 based on the network’s hit series HIGHWAY THRU HELL. With the support of the OPP, Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, York Regional police, maintenance contractors, and several other organizations, the new documentary series follows the men and women who keep Ontario’s 400-series highways operating at any cost.

Spanning the Greater Toronto Area and southern Ontario, HEAVY RESCUE: 401 follows multiple major tow operators, rescue, and maintenance crews day and night along North America’s most intense stretch of highway. From Sarnia eastbound to Toronto and north to Barrie, the cast of heroes work diligently to keep Canada’s most important and busiest series of highways open through any weather condition. From monster snow storms creating kilometers of mayhem to trucks spilling their loads, these efforts safeguard the country’s most important trade route with the U.S. from grinding to a crippling halt through the worst of the winter driving season.

  1. The 401 corridor is really bad east of Toronto. Check out the accident reports from Cobourg to Brockville!!! They call Belleville to Kingston Wrecker Alley

    1. Send a film crew out with a truck driver for a week and watch the caranage, the wreckless, careless, drivers that are on the highways these days. The speeding is out of hand. Sit in a truck stop fro a day and see how new truck drivers can’t back up the trucks they drive. I have been out here 23 years and the last 5/6 yrs have been very scarey at times. People pass you then cut in front of you to take the exit that they knew they wanted to get off at, with no regard to your safety or their own. ect ect…

      1. I live in Belleville and travel to Kingston quite often , I see these type of drivers all the time , always in a panic rush
