Truck smash closes part of Domain Tunnel

PEAK-HOUR commuters have been warned to expect major delays after an over-height truck closed two inbound lanes in Melbourne's Domain Tunnel.

Crews were called to reports of a truck smashing into signs in the tunnel about 2.30pm, with only one lane open in the stretch connecting the Monash Freeway to the West Gate Freeway.

The over-height truck is believed to have knocked out multiple signs inside the tunnel before coming to a stop.

The crash took place minutes after another in Melbourne's CBD.

A truck and a car collision in Southbank's Burnley tunnel shut down one eastbound lane until 3pm.
