The busiest intersection in the CBD collapsed. The 1st report I heard on the radio said a car was making a left turn & the road started cracking under it. Luckily there was a cop following who saw what happened & stopped the traffic. It started out as a small pothole & ended up like this. After I came home, they had to make the hole bigger because of the danger of a gas main exploding. Needless to say the town will be blocked off all night & most of tomorrow.

The official cause was a broken water main that went undetected because there was also a broken storm water pipe next to it. The water was going straight to the river via the broken storm pipe.

It turns out we've got you yanks to thank for it not being any worse.

The story & my pics:

Like the recent theft of a toilet !
Yeah yeah we know. :rolleyes: You mean the one that was stolen from the police station? The cops don't think they'll solve the crime because they've got nothing to go on :(

And I hate to disappoint you Colin but I couldn't "look into it". I was threatened with the cops if I stepped past those cones. :mad:
