All northbound and southbound Dart services were delayed this morning after a loaded truck hit a rail bridge on Barrow Street.

Iarnród Éirean said on twitter (@IrishRail) that services were delayed for up to 20 minutes due to the incident which occurred close to Grand Canal Dock station.

Delays are now easing and will be cleared shortly, with some services operating 5 minutes behind schedule, said the rail service.

Images on twitter show the loaded truck under the Barrow Street bridge. From these images it appears the goods on the truck became stuck under the bridge.

This is not the first time a large vehicle has hit the Barrow Street bridge.
