Action taken to prevent road damage by overweight trucks

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport has taken steps to tackle the problem of overweight trucks, which have caused severe damage to roads and bridges over past years, according to a report.
The ministry’s Transport Department has launched a pilot scheme to modernise three weighing stations as directed by a government notice, the department said in its report.
The modernisation of a weighing station on Road No. 9 in Khamteuy village, Atsaphangthong district, Savannakhet province was completed in August last year, with financial assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
