Lorries (Heavy Lorries on Ladder Roads

Page history last edited by Hugh 15 years, 6 months ago


All lorries should be required to show their weight (without goods) via a symbol (sticker) attached clearly to rear and front of vehicle. Until this is done here are some pictures to give people an idea of what is/isn't 7 tonnes or greater.

Of course this doesn't take into account loaded vehicles.


The pictures below provide an indication of what each weight of lorry looks like.




4 Tonne Lorry



7.5 Tonne Lorry





As for skip trucks, the nice lady at RTS Waste Management tells me that a skip truck loaded with an empty 12yd skip weighs betw 9.6 - 9.8 tonnes. So even with a standard 8yd skip the truck is over the 7 tonne limit for ladder roads
