Bridge Restrictions

Southland District Council has fixed maximum weight and speed limits for heavy motor vehicles on bridges.

Every year Council undertakes testing of our 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 as off June 2017.
