Yes, another transport truck was stuck under the E&N rail line bridge in Vic West.
The transport truck from Nanaimo, was headed south on Hereward Road when it failed to clear the 3.7-metre high passage, called the “can opener” by some, at around 12:15 p.m. Tuesday. The truck was removed by All-Ways Towing just before 2 p.m. The company took air out of the tires before bringing the truck out from under the bridge.
Police blocked the intersection near the bridge off while the truck was being removed.
A neighbour told CHEK signs warning of low clearance at the bridge just went up around two weeks ago.
Ray McIllree, a Hereward Road resident said he was sitting at his computer table on Tuesday when his house started shaking.
“We know that sound, another truck hitting our bridge,” McIllree said.
Cheryl Parker, the All-Ways Towing co-owner said people don’t always read the signs or are too close to the limit.
The City of Victoria has insisted its signage is accurate.
The last time CHEK reported on a truck being stuck under the bridge was December 2017. But it has been a common occurrence over the past decade.
