Truck drivers who breach bridge load limits are being put on notice.

Wingecarribee Council's Asset's Department has collected evidence over the past few weeks, of 40 tonne trucks crossing rural bridges in the Meryla area, where there's a four tonne weight limit.

The issue is causing plenty of damage to our local infrastructure.

Manager Stace Lewer says there are also massive dangers posed if something were to go wrong

Hefty fines are in place for drivers caught flouting the rules.

Anyone with information should contact council on 4868 0707.
