Bridge strike protection

Queensland Rail's bridge strike protection program aims to prevent over-height vehicles from colliding with rail bridges in South East Queensland.

Bridge strikes can cause costly damage and frustrating delays for road and rail users and can also be extremely dangerous, which is why Queensland Rail is making every effort to prevent them.

These specially designed protection beams also significantly reduce the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over should it strike the beam.

Queensland Rail is committed to reducing the likelihood and impact of bridge strikes through engineering solutions and working with police on enforcement. 

Every bridge is fitted with a height clearance sign and it's up to motorists to stay focused and be aware of their vehicle's height and load.

Motorists who damage Queensland Rail infrastructure, including bridges, face penalties of up to $8,800, in addition to the repair bill.
