IF YOU reckon you’re having a bad day at work, think again.

According to the The Courier, the accident – said to cause tens of thousands of pounds worth of damage – forced train and road traffic to a standstill. Two of the vehicles have since been written off.
The Courier also reports that this bridge “has been struck by heavy-good vehicles several times in recent years”, which reminds us of a little bridge closer to home in Southbank, Victoria. The Montague Street Bridge is notorious for claiming the topside of trucks and vans, and there’s even a website set up with a counter for the number of days since the bridge has been hit – check it out here: howmanydayssincemontaguestreetbridgehasbeenhit.com
