Highways

Brandon is located at the junction of two major highways, the Trans Canada #1 and Provincial Trunk #10.  The Trans Canada Highway runs east - west connecting all provinces within Canada.  Manitoba's capital, Winnipeg, is located a 2 hour drive east on the Trans Canada while Saskatchewan's capital, Regina, is located a 3 hour drive west.

 

Provincial Highway #10 is the main north-south route in western Manitoba, connecting the mining and forestry centres of northern Manitoba (Flin Flon, The Pas, Swan River) with a 24-hour border crossing at the International Peace Garden 100 kilometres south of Brandon. This crossing connects up with U.S. Highway #2, a major east-west route across the northern States. Highway #10 intersects the Yellowhead Route (#16) just 50 kilometres north of Brandon, providing a major route to Yorkton, Saskatoon and Edmonton.
