Accuweigh have supplied 4 x multi-deck weighbridges to the Department for Transport Energy and Infrastructure in South Australia.
The 4 x multi-deck weighbridges are located at weight checking points in Stirling North and Blanchetown with Monteith having two multi-deck weighbridges installed.
On Tuesday 20th January 09, the recently completed weighbridges were officially opened by Ms Lyn Breuer MP after eight months of construction with an aim to make roads safe and prevent damage caused by overloaded vehicles.
Accuweigh’s new 4 x multi-deck weighbridges have the following advantages:
- The length of 36 metres is capable of weighing the full length of trucks and trailers in one operation
- The capacity of over 200t allows for future heavy vehicles
- The multi-deck configuration displays the weights of all axle groups in a single weighing operation
Each weighbridge comprises five individual weighbridge decks (2 x 5m, 2 x 8m and 1 x 10m long) for a total overall length of 36 metres. The capacities of the individual weighbridge decks are 2 x 30t and 3 x 50t with a total overall weighing capacity of 210 tonne per multi-deck weighbridge.
These multi-deck weighbridges are designed to weigh any combination of vehicle and trailer while also displaying individual axle group weights. All are in-ground weighbridges with a central manhole in each weighbridge deck, which is lockable for security reasons.
