The Twiiterverse brings us news that Canberra Airport is flooding inside thanks to a leaking roof in the new terminal. Not only that but they’ve run out of booze for all the passengers stuck waiting.
Anyone remember the last major construction project in Canberra that didn’t leak? Has years of drought somehow led to collective amnesia among architects, engineers and builders of what happens when water falls from the sky onto a structure?
