2003-01-20: At 0350Z, WJA 253 taxied to position on Runway 02 at Edmonton and then the crew advised Tower of a nose wheel steering problem. Assistance was required for the a/c to return to the Terminal, so the runway was closed while the aircraft was towed to the apron. There was a minor impact to airport operations as several departures were re-routed to other runways. The cause of the gear problem is not known.

Maintenance replaced the valve and the aircraft was returned to service. No further difficulties were reported and an SDR will be filed.
