Truck at Barker’s Hill roundabout cleared
A large truck and its cargo, that were in danger of overturning at Barker's Hill roundabout this evening, have been moved.
The 18-wheeler, bound for Tynes Bay Incinerator, was carrying a heavy piece of machinery when it failed to navigate the bend.
First responders attended the scene and a crane was used to right the truck, which then continued on to the incinerator.
A second truck carrying heavy machinery was reversed along North Shore Road to Tynes Bay and by 8.25pm the roundabout was clear.
East-bound traffic on North Shore Road was diverted over Dock Hill and Palmetto Road while the truck was being moved.
