Where can I find a public weighbridge in Canberra?

By 29 February 2012 12

I want to weigh my car, camper trailer and towball weight so I need to go over a weighbridge 3 times

I’d assume Mugga Lane would be too busy to do this comfortably, and I went to one in Hume that was on Google which appeared closed when I went there (during business hours).  Can’t find anything on the TAMS website except how much it will cost to get a certificate, if you can find a weighbridge, but there you’re on your own.

Any clues?

The Cement crushing place (building materiel recycling) out past the airport has a weighbridge. Don’t know about weather they do that kinda thing.

Fair chance that any of that Mitchell tip, sorry reclamation and recycling place would have one.

Rural Firewood Supplies – Whyalla St Fyshwick.

The number I had for the Hume weigh bridge was 6207 2423, but that was ACT Forestry which used to run it.

There’s a weighbridge at the old Belconnen tip too – in the area that’s now the recycling drop off point.

The Mitchell Tip definitely performs this service. I obtained one as part of an engineering certificate for a highly modified car i registered and this is where it was obtained from.

Me too – I got my Magna weighed to prove to TAMS that it weighed the handbook weight, not the arbitrary amount that the rego mechanic (without a weighbridge) wrote on the form – taking it back below 1504kg and getting myself a $130 refund!!

Yeah that’s the one I tried first up, the wooden building just as you go into Tralee Street on the right, and it was closed up and looked deserted. I think that’s the Forestry one someone mentioned.

Is there another in Hume I missed?

Just phoned Rural Firewood Supplies “yeah we can do that anytime, no problem, 20 bucks”.


Thanks all!

Both Mitchell and Mugga Lane tips have weighbridges that can help you out, should run about 22- 25$.
