Tuesday traffic delays as truck wedged under Corinda bridge
A truck has been removed from underneath a railway bridge after becoming stuck overnight on Oxley Road, Corinda.
“You have to question the IQ of someone, and that someone is someone driving a semi-trailer, past three signs and another sign warning there’s a camera in front of you,” said Ray Hadley.
“We’re talking about a 3.6 metre clearance and, allowing for that, I think the semi was over four metres… maybe 4.2 metres, or thereabouts.”
Truck has now been removed and trains travelling overhead again. Road should reopen shortly. But it’s caused decent delays for peak hour traffic on Oxley Road with vehicles needing to be diverted around Corinda overpass. @9NewsQueensland pic.twitter.com/ZWumdg6lfu

“You’d question, does someone at Lindsay Brothers not tell the driver what size truck he’s driving, or does the driver not enquire himself?”
Ray Hadley contacted Lindsay Transport, the business which owns the truck, but was unable to receive a response to the incident.

While the truck was wedged in place, traffic was blocked in both directions on Oxley Road at Martindale Street, Corinda, with diversions in place.
