Laser beams part of new warning system for Napier St Bridge

LASER beams and electric signs will be switched on at Melbourne's most notorious bridge on Wednesday in a hi-tech push to end truck crashes at the dangerous spot.

The Herald Sun report says the Andrews Government has invested $1.2 million into a new warning system for the Napier St Bridge in Footscray, which has been hit by more than 70 oversized vehicles in the past five years.

The infamous bridge is a hotspot for overhead collisions, despite the presence of 28 warning signs and seven height detection devices around the crossing.
