Bridge weights and speeds

Council has set maximum weight and speed limits for heavy vehicles on the bridges listed.

The scale of infringement fees rises to $850 per axle and $1000 for groups of axles of infringements of these limits.

Any temporary restrictions on bridges will be posted on our road information webpage

Weight and speed restrictions

Note: A bridge with a Gross Limit % less than 100% cannot be used by Class 1 (44 Tonne) heavy vehicles.

The Gross Limit % tells you what percentage of Class 1 (44 Tonnes) the bridge can currently carry. It must be 100% to safely accommodate Class 1 (44 Tonne) vehicles.

Note: the bridge on Shaw Road is privately owned and not for public use
