Bridge restrictions

 

Southland District Council has fixed maximum weight and speed limits for heavy motor vehicles on bridges. Bridges with restrictions are called posted bridges.

Council undertakes annual inspections of all our posted bridges to determine the maximum weight and speed limits they can safely support.

Below is a table listing the motor vehicle weight class and the speed limit.

The bold restrictions indicate changes made since June 2021.
