What Does South Melbourne’s Montague Street Bridge Have In Common With Victoria’s Coronavirus Tally?

Both trackers read ‘donut’ on Tuesday October 27.

For the second day in a row, Victoria’s Covid tally showed up a big zero to the delight of all who clicked online and took a look to see if yesterday was just a dream. And seeing that yesterday was no accident—after all we Melburnians have put in a hard slog at the crease to keep the rest of the country safe—Melbourne has decided to gift its residents an event that returns us to normalcy.

At around lunch time today, South Melbourne’s infamous Montague Street bridge with its three metre low clearance claimed another (truck) scalp ending a twenty-day streak that, in all honesty, probably only lasted so long because of the lack of traffic.

The Montague St Bridge Twitter account was quick on the celebration and has since been having some fun.

It seems that even with clearly labeled signs and heights as well as a gantry which was installed to eliminate trucks getting stuck under the bridge that Monty Balboa still comes out on top no matter how old it gets.

The Montague Street bridge, though, is by no means the only low-clearance bridge in the city that has been seeing some love taps.

However, some people are debating whether or not we can really get back to normal until the Napier Street bridge in Footscray gets a truck stuck underneath it too.

For a bit of a laugh, check out the Montague Street bridge’s fight history and see how all challengers have faced up to the mighty Monty Balboa.

With pubs, bars, restaurants opening up from tonight, we’ll soon be seeing plenty more signs of Melbourne returning to normalcy. What are you looking forward to seeing (or not) around town?
