A truck has crashed after hitting a railroad crossing in South Melbourne near the infamous Montague Street bridge.
A large truck hit the level crossing and forced the closure of City Road in both directions between Montague Street and Cecil Street this morning.
The truck was finally removed by crews just after 11.30am and traffic has slowly reopened.
There are several signs warning large vehicles about the height of the bridge, which has a ground clearance of about three meters.
The driver of the truck is not believed to have suffered any injuries.
