The GDE in: How not to build a highway overpass

The bridge for the GDE Duplication has has collapsed onto the  Barton Highway. Both southbound lanes closed at Gundaroo Drive roundabout.

More to come as information flows through.

That would be why there was so much traffic around when I was driving out there. Ah well, back to the start boys.

In an unrelated story I read down the page some idiot stole the subway funny, then posted a photo of himself on facebook, what a douche!

It is looking like I'm going to have fun getting to & from work for the next fortnight with the other Gungahlin Drive bridge closed.

Back in my day (er 2000-2002 when I lived out there) there was no bridge. It was crappy then, so I can only imagine it is a lot worse now.

Good luck.
