The Industrial Park Landscape in the GTA

Industrial parks are a common sight in the GTA. With over 100 such parks, they are home to a diverse range of businesses, from manufacturing and distribution to tech startups and service providers. Each park houses a significant number of businesses, contributing to the economic vitality of the region.

Some of the top industrial parks in the GTA include:

  • The Heartland Business Community in Mississauga, a 2,100-acre business park with over 1,000 companies and 30,000 employees.
  • The Maple Leaf Business Park in Brampton, a large master-planned industrial park that is home to over 1,000 businesses and employs over 20,000 people.
  • The Caledon Industrial Park in Caledon, a large rural industrial park located in the northwest GTA and home to a variety of businesses, including manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution.
  • The GTA East Industrial Park in Ajax, a large master-planned industrial park that is located in the east end of the GTA and home to over 500 businesses and employs over 10,000 people.

Challenges Faced by Industrial Parks in the GTA

Industrial parks in the GTA face several challenges, including:

  • Heavy Traffic: Industrial parks are often strategically located near major transportation routes for easy access. However, this leads to high traffic volumes, especially during peak hours. This constant traffic, coupled with the weight of industrial vehicles, can cause significant wear and tear on the roads. Over time, this can lead to the degradation of the asphalt, creating a rough and unsafe driving surface.
  • Heavy Loads: Industrial vehicles, such as trucks and forklifts, often carry heavy loads. These heavy loads put additional stress on the roads and parking areas, leading to damage over time. The impact of these heavy loads can cause the asphalt to crack and break, leading to the formation of potholes. These potholes not only pose a risk to vehicles but can also lead to water accumulation, further damaging the pavement.
  • Extreme Weather Conditions: The GTA’s weather can exacerbate maintenance challenges. Cold winters can cause the asphalt to contract and crack, creating a rough surface and increasing the risk of accidents. On the other hand, hot summers can lead to the asphalt softening and deforming. This can create ruts in the road, affecting the smoothness of the drive and potentially leading to water pooling during rainstorms.
  • Hazardous Materials: Industrial parks often house businesses that handle hazardous materials. Improper storage or maintenance of these materials can pose risks, including damage to the pavement. For example, chemical spills can corrode the asphalt, leading to its degradation. This not only affects the integrity of the pavement but can also lead to environmental issues if not addressed promptly.

Sure-Seal’s Pavement Services: Addressing Challenges in Industrial Parks

Sure-Seal’s pavement services are designed to directly address the challenges faced by industrial parks, including:

  • Asphalt Paving, Repair, and Maintenance: Asphalt is a durable and cost-effective material that is well-suited for industrial parks. Sure-Seal can install new asphalt pavement or repair existing asphalt pavement. We can also provide maintenance services, such as crack sealing and pothole repair, to ensure the longevity of the pavement and to maintain a smooth and safe surface for traffic.
  • Pavement Crack Sealing and Pothole Repair: Cracks in asphalt pavement can allow water to seep in and damage the underlying concrete. Sure-Seal can seal cracks in asphalt pavement to prevent them from spreading. We also repair potholes, restoring the safety and smoothness of the pavement. This proactive approach to maintenance can prevent more extensive damage and costly repairs in the future.
  • Traffic Calming Speed Hump Maintenance and Installation: Traffic calming speed humps can help to reduce traffic speeds and improve safety in industrial parks. Sure-Seal can install new speed humps or maintain existing ones, contributing to a safer environment for both vehicles and pedestrians in the park.
