Irish Rail are advising commuters of delays of services to and from Pearse station and Grand Canal Dock as a large truck with a cement mixer has gotten jammed under a bridge in South Lotts in Ringsend, Dublin 4.

Irish Rail tweeted a picture of the truck, which got caught by the low ceiling of the bridge and services were temporarily stopped.

“Services stopped between Pearse and Grand canal Dock due to a truck stuck under a bridge at South Lotts,” the tweet read.

The line has now reopened and services are operating with a 15 minute delay.

“Line has reopened between Pearse and Grand Canal Dock after truck hitting a bridge. Services running up to 15 minutes late as a result,” an update read.
