By 18 July 2013

The selection criteria for being accepted as a roadworker is obviously not particularly stringent – do they fail anyone who scores above 25% in their final exams?!

Murulla Lane in Civic is now two way, sometimes

By 22 May 2013

This also in from SheepGroper:
There are now two signs at the entrance to Murulla Lane to warn pedestrians and other traffic that the builders gutting 16-18 Mort St sometimes block off their end of the lane completely, forcing vehicles to exit via the entrance.

Road sign vandalism in Canberra?

By 13 September 2011

Was wondering if the ACT police is doing anything about the mindless twits who seem to enjoy destroying road signs, particularly in Gungahlin (but I’ve noticed the damage further into the city).
