Honestly, how do people even manage to do it? Surely they are aware of the height of their vehicle. Is it that they forget the height or are unaware or the clearance? If so, this is where protection beams should be put in place (like the new ones in Goodna) at all bridges (road and rail) that are under a certain height (say 4m). This way, the vehicles will get stuck before the bridge, only delaying the road traffic rather than both road and rail.

TMR Facebook is warning Townsville residents of a Bruce Highway closure at Yabulu, to remove a section of the abandoned Greenvale Railway line overpass due a bridge strike.

Understandable, given the line has been closed for more than 20 years, but the bridge is 5.4 metres high according to Google Street View  :o
