Witnesses sought to Commonwealth Avenue bridge damage

Can you help

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses and dash-cam footage of an incident which caused damage to the underside of the Commonwealth Avenue bridge.  

About 3.35pm on Tuesday, 6 February 2024, a truck towing an excavator was travelling westbound on Parkes Way under the Commonwealth Avenue flyover.  

Around this time, it is believed the excavator struck the underside of both carriageways of the bridge, causing damage.  

The incident caused significant traffic delays, with one westbound lane on Parkes Way closed for over six hours due to debris on Parkes Way and to allow engineers to examine the damage.  

Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident, or who may have dash-cam footage of the incident.  

Anyone with information that could assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 7667042.
