This type of weighbridge / Truck scale is most suitable where the excavation work for foundation is difficult or construction of pit is expensive. Since the structure is above ground level, vehicles can approach the weighbridge only from two directions where the ramps are provided. This type of weighbridge requires more space.
Costly Pit construction is eliminated.
Platform above ground level- No water logging during rainy season
Problem of pit maintenance is eliminated.
Easy maintenance since all parts accessible above ground level.
In Pitless weighbridge RCC ramp work must be required atlest 3 meters for both side for easy movement of vehicle.
