Bureau of Meteorology warning summary
Load limits are placed on roads and bridges to limit use by vehicles over a certain tonnage to help preserve structural integrity.
While vehicles over the tonnage indicated on the advisory sign, cannot use these roads as through roads, they are permitted to use the roads as "local traffic".
That is, vehicles used for deliveries, removals, passenger pick-up, rubbish removal and the like, can access other roads that branch off the load limited road, where no other access is available. Buses are permitted.
To report vehicles disregarding load limit signage contact Policelink 131 444.
