Planned Melbourne truck protest loses steam


A planned anti-vax truck blockade along the Westgate Freeway from Port Melbourne to the airport failed to eventuate this morning.

Busloads of police arrived at the intended meeting point, the Todd Road servo, to stop the truckies before they began what organisers on social media said would be a slow-moving convoy along the freeway at 20km/h.

Later this morning, VicRoads reported that there were instead just a handful so slow-moving trucks on the Tullamarine Freeway heading from Essendon to the city.

VicRoads said they were causing minimal disruption but had lowered the speed limit on the road as a caution.

Police did initially have two lanes of the Westgate Freeway closed earlier today but they were quickly reopened when the truck convoy failed to show.
