Tourist in campervan the latest Montague Street bridge victim

All lanes have now reopened on Montague Street in South Melbourne after some brief closures so police could help the driver free his vehicle.

VicRoads said the male driver was a tourist with limited English.

It is believed he was unaware of the numerous warning signs and gantries on the approach to the bridge.

The three-metre-high rail bridge has been busy in 2019, also trapping a truck on January 22.

An electronic height-detection gantry was installed at the bridge in 2016, and there have been 15 crashes since. There are 26 signs warning of the bridge’s clearance height.

A bus driver who hit the bridge in 2016, injuring six passengers, was jailed in December and is requesting more time to appeal the length of his five-year sentence.
