It must have been a big container. Double deck buses swarm under it no bother! As well as Mr Plod's interest, a "Bridge Strike" (in Network Rail's parlance) will cost the firm mega-bucks. Any damage to bridge and stopping all trains up & down whilst examination of structure is carried out.

Good luck in your next job lorry driver !

Just thought..... I'm assuming this WAS the railway bridge and not one of the pedestrian bridges ??

If the latter, please ignore the former (?)

If it was the railway bridge it won't be the first time ... Just a bit of History but a number of Boy Scouts were killed attending the 'First Boy Scout Jamboree' in Arrowe park, when the top was ripped off their double decker bus under that same bridge (that's why the road floods,it was lowered after that to allow double deckers to pass under).

@ianbx1. I recall reading somewhere about that tragic accident. I suspect that "may" have been the original railway bridge. The present bridge was erected in the 1930's when Woodchurch Road was widened and houses started to be built in the area.

I think I asked a while ago if anyone had any photographs of that original bridge. I've never come across any at all. My request drew a blank. Anyone ......... ??

Sorry, you are correct, the accident happened in 1929 and as you say the road was widened in the 1930's, I should have said was under the old bridge in that spot. I too would be interested in seeing a photo of that old bridge.

The lorry getting stuck, surely driving a lorry all the time you would be aware of low bridges, trees etc?

It is laughable. smile
