Our bridge

Bucks Free Press: Our bridge

9:23am Friday 3rd October 2014

I know there has been a lot of talk about the load limit for our bridge and how it should best be managed. I'm continually amazed that something more can't be done to protect it from vehicles that obviously shouldn't be using it. I've attached two photos of a vehicle that I followed across the bridge today... and clearly it shouldn't have been there. There seems to be a total disregard of the limit by some drivers. Has the council entertained putting a camera on the bridge to capture photos of these oversize vehicles? With the amazing technology that we have today, surely there is some way that vehicles can be weighed on their way either onto or across the bridge and a photo taken of those that exceed the limit. I would hate to see this beautiful bridge destroyed or rendered unusable by the endless string of vehicles with drivers who only care about themselves and not about the bridge!
