A small refrigerated truck hit the barrier leading into Cambridge’s Victoria Street (High Level) Bridge last week resulting in damage to signs.
Video from the recently installed CCTV cameras pointed at the bridge enabled Waipā District Council to provide police with licence plate details.
Service Delivery committee chair Grahame Webber, who lives near the bridge, told the committee this week he heard the crash on early afternoon crash on November 3 and asked whether the council had any further information.
“We have the culprit on CCTV camera,” said Transportation manager Bryan Hudson. The truck ignored a large sign which spells out the height, width and weight restrictions on the historic bridge.
Vehicles over 3m high are banned from the bridge. Council staff fixed the barrier and signs on Monday night.
