Weighbridge At Invercargill Transfer Station To Be Repaired

Essential repairs to the outward weighbridge at the Invercargill Transfer station will begin on Monday, 20 May.

Drainage and Solid Waste Manager Malcolm Loan said the concrete pit which the weighbridge sits in has begun breaking down due to the movement of the weighbridge when vehicles drive on and off it.

“The weighbridge was first installed in 1997, so it has lasted more than 20 years before needing these major repairs,” Mr Loan said.

The outward weighbridge will be closed for the repairs from Monday, 20 May until Tuesday, 28 May, weather permitting.

While the Transfer station will remain open while repairs are undertaken, customers are encouraged to avoid using the facility while works are underway due to possible delays.

Traffic management will be in place to direct customers to safely enter and exit over the same weighbridge, but queues are likely. Customers may also need to exit their vehicles to pay for waste disposal.

The Habitat for Humanity Garage Reuse shop will be open as usual throughout the repairs, however there may be delays accessing carparks due to queues for the weighbridge. Parking is available on Bond Street.
