Melbourne commuters may face a long trip home from the city, with trains, trams and traffic disrupted by a truck that crashed into a rail bridge at a major CBD intersection.
The truck became wedged under a bridge at the junction of Spencer and Flinders streets on Thursday afternoon, closing city streets and blocking trams.
Trains were briefly disrupted and then resumed, but further delays are expected in the rush home as Metro Trains reschedules some city loop services to help with the removal of the truck.
All lines that normally travel between Flinders Street and Southern Cross stations will be affected.
Select services may run direct from Flinders Street to Richmond, Jolimont or Southern cross, Metro said in a travel alert.
"Services are being altered and you may experience delays," the company Tweeted.
"Please listen for announcements and check platform displays as the situation may change at short notice."
Metro said minor delays are expected.
