A tram in Melbourne’s CBD was derailed after a collision with a cement mixer.
The tram was knocked off the rails near the intersection of Collins and Exhibition Streets around 1.30pm on Wednesday.
It resulted in the closure of the intersection and the suspension of several tram lines.
Just before 2.30pm, Yarra Trams tweeted that the tram lines were back to being operational.
However, it warned of delays due to a backlog of services.

A spokesperson for the Department of Transport earlier said the delays were caused by a collision between a cement mixer and a tram.
Photos of the scene show scrapes along the front-left of the tram.
“The roads will re-open and services will resume when investigations are complete and the tram has been safely returned to the tracks,” a Department of Transport spokesperson earlier said.
“Our signals team is monitoring conditions and will adjust traffic lights as needed to minimise congestion in the area.”
Commuters are advised to check the PTV app before travelling and listen for announcements at tram stops.
