Accuweigh’s QWM branch in Brisbane installed a public weighbridge for public vehicle weighings at the SEQ Hauliers depot at Hemmant, Queensland.  

Public weighbridges are open for use by the public in return for a nominated charge. Public weighbridges are monitored by state inspectors to ensure accuracy and compliance with the Trade Measurement Act.  

The Accuweigh public weighbridge installed for SEQ Hauliers was constructed with a durable concrete deck measuring 28 metres in length to accommodate B Double Road Trains in a single weighing transaction.  

For ease of truck access, the weighbridge foundations use a semi-pit design to keep the weighing deck at ground level.  

The public weighbridge was manufactured in Brisbane by QWM at Geebung with a heavy duty design.  

Key features of QWM’s public weighbridge: 

  • All metalwork hot dip galvanised for strong resistance to corrosion
  • Weighing capacity of 80.00 tonnes
  • Heavy concrete weighbridge deck supported on 8 stainless steel weighbridge load cells of 30-tonne capacity each
  • Oversize cross beams and heavier steel mesh in the concrete decks ensure structural integrity for an extended working life
