No-one was injured but motorists were urged to avoid the area while the truck was removed and the bridge was checked for damage.

The semi-trailer was moved about 7:30am and traffic flow returned to normal.

"The bridge does not appear to be as damaged as previously stated," a police statement reads, referring to a previous media release.
