Bundaberg Weighbridge Requires Piled Foundations.
October 2011 Australasia Scales supplied, installed and trade verified a 20m x 3m above ground weighbridge at a Bundaberg Waste Transfer Station. The fully hot dipped galvanised concrete in-fill weighbridge is supported by 6 heavy duty CAS WBK canister type load cells, each with in-built lightning protection and IP68 rated dust and water proofing.
Soil test results indicated suitable stable founding conditions for the weighbridge were not available in the fill soils and refuse materials – Qualified Geo-technical & Structural Engineers recommended 6m long piles be driven to a minimum 5m depth to ensure stability of the weighbridge and modular hut.
This weighbridge is to be predominantly used as a single directional weighbridge and to satisfy OH & S regulations a removable galvanised walkway was also required to ensure drivers safely exit and re-enter their vehicles whilst parked on the weighbridge.
