Scales to monitor weights

Thursday, January 23, 2014

THE Land Transport Authority recently dispatched two portable scales to monitor vehicles which operate exceeding standard weight limits in the North.

LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said overloading of cargo by vehicles especially logging trucks was a safety concern to the authority and they were a menace for roads and bridges as far as road maintenance companies were concerned.

Mr Sokia said the portable scale was able to operate at any site and even at loading places.

"We would like to warn heavy goods vehicles including logging trucks to refrain from overloading but to stick to the required regulated load," he said.

"The authority has removed the Tabia weighbridge from its existing site because the place is a flood prone area, the authority came across two recent heavy floods in the North and the weighbridge had encountered some technical problem.
