Bridges Act, 1929

The Minister of Transport has caused a circular to be issued to all highway authorities in Great Britain drawing attention to the provision of the Bridges Act, 1929. The main provisions of this Act are designed to facilitate the procedure for the reconstruction of weak bridges in private ownership, e.g., in the ownership of railway companies, canal companies, etc. Many of these bridges, as is well known, are not fitted to carry modern traffic, and the restrictions which their owners are authorised by law to impose on their use by heavy vehicles have caused considerable inconvenience and loss to trade and industry.
