If you check your melways, there's a section thats gives u the location/address of all the weighbridges in melb. there are quite a few Smile

As someone else also mentioned above, i'd like to know if the weighbridges are manned and if there all free?

OK, i didn't realise so many people cant find weigh bridges....

I dont hav a Melway with me, but i'm pretty sure the address of the one i went to was: Verey Court Dandenong. Opposite Dandenong show grounds.

Theres no big sign saying weigh bridge (well i didnt see 1).... so just look clearfully or just hop out and ask sum1 in 1 of the work shops in the area. When u find the weigh bridge is actually apart of the ground ur probly now standing on while asking a lady though a window where it is.... just smile and ask her if she can give u the weight of ur car. (thats what i did Rolling Eyes )

Drive ur car on and the nice lady will tell u ur cars fat and needs a diet... then will give u the weight to the nearest 10kgs i believe it was. It shouldn't be a problem. Smile

And for the 86 guys, for u to compare ur car against... mine weighed 880kgs. (4ag with 15" rims, 2 stock seats and a spare tyre pretty much).

Goodluck guys.
If u still have problems finding it... just PM me and i'll grab a Melway and spoon feed you it. Shocked



Just kidding.... i'll help ya out. Smile

THe weigh bridge i went to was 'wo'manned. A old chick was inside a little building next to the weighbridge and the computer in there showed her the weight.

And it was free. She said its free cuz its a public service or sumthing like that... mainly used by trucks that require knowledge on there weight for safety reasons (such as MAX load... sum trucks have to be below a certain weight to be allowed to drive on certain roads, etc). She also offered to print out the weight of my car, as some trucks require a print out of the trucks weight for whatever reason.
