Melbourne’s notorious lowbridge snares another victim

GREY nomads and other travellers have again been warned about the notorious Montague Street Bridge in Melbourne. Numerous RVers on their way to the Spirit of Tasmania ferries have been caught unaware by the three-metre high structure in the city’s south. The latest victim was the driver of a motorhome who failed to obey five warning signs before becoming well and truly stuck under the light railway bridge, which has become so infamous it has a Facebook page of its own. He was unhurt but the vehicle’s roof was slightly damaged. VicTraffic said it was the responsibility of drivers to know how long, heavy and high their vehicles were. “Check your dimensions before driving,” it said. “And please pay attention to the five warning signs, the gantries and the low clearance signs.”
