VICTORIA Road is expected to be repaired today after a semi-trailer hit a railway bridge on Friday.
Traffic has been diverted around the bridge this weekend after a 10-12 tonne bridge protection beam fell on the road.
The bridge reopened to trains on Friday but a crane was required to lift the beam from the road.
VICTORIA Road will be closed for one or two days after a semi-trailer carrying hay hit a railway bridge, knocking down a protection beam.
The protection beam, weighing 10-12 tonnes, will take a crane to lift.
Police said the trailer carrying vetch hay from Charlton to Sutton Grange lost its load when it hit the bridge.
Train services were suspended until the bridge could be deemed safe, but have now resumed.
Police will make inquiries in relation to the driver accessing a bridge lower than appropriate for his load.
He will be interviewed at a later date.
TRAINS have resumed and are running as normal after an inspection of the bridge.
A V/LINE fitter and inspector will assess damage to a railway bridge in Harcourt before trains begin to run again.
