In spite of this alert protection being fitted, the bridge is still occasionally hit. Photo from the Herald Sun.
But the dear old Monty still scores occasionally, as it did twelve days ago, according to the website How Many Days Since the Montague Street Bridge Was Hit. In this case the glazier's van turned from a minor side street and did not approach using Montague Street where the warning system is, and bang, gotcha. As far as I know, the bridge has a perfect score, never having been substantially damaged but damaging many vehicles. I remember the poor old couple who drove off the Spirit of Tasmania ferry in their brand new campervan and nearly took the top off it.
Even advertising companies have picked up on our Montague Street Bridge.
