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
