Its a good size, not sure of the clearance though.

If its to low for commerical vehicles minimum of 4.5 m it would need to be sign posted accordingly.

Know one bridge in Perth WA always catches out some truck drivers posted at 3.5 but many try to fit under at 3.8 or higher

and for what its worth WA only has one tunnel carved by hand and its no longer used - old railway line between midland and hovea station before Avon valley route was implemented

The one above will take a rigid truck with a stock crate on it, there is also a large puddle in the middle of it in wet weather as the bottom dips down.
I've also seen largish trucks and motorhomes go through the one on the Wombeyan caves road so caravans have no problems
