Truck hauling 75t steel frame squeezed through intersection


AN oversized load paused traffic so it could be squeezed through traffic lights in South Lake about midday last Tuesday.

A Main Roads spokeswoman said traffic lights were “pulled slightly” to allow a truck hauling a 75-tonne steel frame to pass through the intersection of North Lake Road and Osprey Drive.

She said the frame touched the lights but was not wedged as initially thought by passing |motorists.

There was no damage to the frame or the traffic lights.

The truck was under escort at the time.
