A TRUCK rollover closed the left-hand lane of Peninsula Link south-bound for four hours, Monday 3 May.
The cement mixer, loaded with 13 cubic metres of concrete weighing 13 tonnes, flipped after the driver tried to correct a drift into the inside lane.
Sergeant Bruce Buchan, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the truck veered into shrubbery and ploughed through a light pole, 2pm.
The driver, a Springvale man, 56, was not injured in the incident and did not require hospital treatment.
Sergeant Buchan said two heavy haulage trucks were required to right the mixer near the Golf Links Road entry ramp. He said a Peninsula Link clean-up crew using a front-end loader arrived soon after to clear concrete from the road surface while an EPA crew mopped up spilled oil.
South-bound traffic was redirected onto Golf Links Road and along Fulton Road or the Moorooduc Highway.
Sergeant Buchan said the incident was being investigated.
