The water out of my taps this morning was a dark brown colour. Related to this, maybe? I live in the Belconnen area.

I just went past this on my way home, but was only delayed by a few minutes. They’re letting traffic through the roundabout near the shops one lane at a time. When I went past about 15 minutes ago there was a nice big hole at the roundabout that was approx 3x3m. Sounds like it will be all fixed soon.
