Bridge prosecution No3 thanks to Bradford on Avon lorry watch scheme
Another haulage firm has been prosecuted thanks to the Bradford on Avon lorry watch scheme.
Leicestershire-based Moran Logistics pleaded guilty to two offences of exceeding the 18-tonne weight restriction on the Town Bridge. It was fined £1,500 plus costs at Chippenham Magistrates Court.
It is the third prosecution as a direct result of the volunteer-led monitoring scheme and follows a long-running campaign to prevent the structure being damaged.
The scheme, which started last year, sees volunteers working with Bradford on Avon Council and Wiltshire Council to monitor vehicles infringing the weight limit.
