MORNING traffic was backed up for kilometres through multiple suburbs in west Lake Macquarie on Monday after a truck became struck overnight on Five Islands Bridge. The oversize truck’s load, a concrete bridge girder from a nearby industrial business, shifted as the driver was travelling north about 1.45am. A crane had to be called in to realign the load before the truck could be moved. The incident caused delays for motorists with a long line of traffic forming from the bridge back to the Toronto Lions Park. A contra flow was in place until the truck was moved about 8.30am. Lake Macquarie Police said it was an unfortunate incident and there would be no further action. MORE NEWS
