VicRoads has announced that load limit restrictions will be imposed on the Victoria Street Bridge in Richmond, in addition to current traffic restrictions.
From 10 August 2011 all vehicles using the bridge must weight no more than 30 tonnes(exceptions are trams). This load limit will apply until further notice.
The restrictions have been put in place to enable maintenance works to take place.
VicRoads has suggested alternate routes for heavy vehicles – trucks travelling along Victoria Street/Barkers Road can use Burnley Street, Bridge Road and Church Street.
