Weighbridges available for public use

A number of weighbridges are available for public use in Essex.

You should contact the weighbridge operator before going to check:

  • how much it costs to use
  • how to get there
  • their operating hours

You should also tell the operator if you have a very large vehicle, to make sure it will fit on the weighbridge.
