A truck shed its load yesterday afternoon, forcing bridge bosses to close the northbound carriageway for 12 minutes.

A tweet from Tay Road Bridge said: “At about 4.15pm today a pick-up truck shed its load onto the northbound carriageway.

“Fortunately no one was injured, but a disruptive and avoidable 12 minute carriageway closure was required.”

The message went on to warn motorists in the hope of avoiding any repeats.

“Please check all loads are properly secured. This is for the safety of all road users.”
