Thanks :) Yeah the issue they're grappling with is that the bridge height
dataset is incomplete, and they're not sure about liabilities if someone
developed an app that had the wrong (or no) height limit on a bridge, and
there was a collision.

What's great is it's the whole state, not just Vicroads-managed roads.
