A satirical twitter account, Fake Yarra Trams, noted in mid-September that it had been a while since the accident-prone Montague Street Bridge in South Melbourne had taken a truck’s scalp, with the city’s roads vacant because of the lockout.
Yesterday, just one day after Premier Daniel Andrews revealed a big lifting of Metropolitan Melbourne’s restrictions, that’s already changed.
According to 3AW, a vehicle struck the bridge shortly after 1.30pm on Tuesday, which has a notoriously low clearance of three metres but is well signposted after more than 90 years of mayhem.
Outbound lanes are still blocked on Montague Street while the truck sits wedged, blocking the right lane.
