I haven't seen the vehicle in question, but from your description I put it down to a combination of poor wheel alignment plus a faulty left hand indicator.

I’ll try & get a picture next time I’m passing an incident. It’ll make supposition & guesswork a bit easier.

I would put it down to the fact that very few adjust their driving habits to the relevant road conditions .

Looks like the professional pipe repairs at the Global traffic lights went the same way as the earlier, unprofessional pipe repairs.

Yep a few over-laden Lorries with trailers will soon trash that I expect

^ But the hole was deep and dry with the repaired pipework exposed in air for at least a couple of days before it blew out again. They hadn't refilled the hole this time so no vehicles were passing over it with single lane traffic passing about 3 or 4 meters away. By the time they shut off the water, the hole was full and the pipework was underwater.

I still reckon there's still a few hundred square meters of deep 'blancmange' under this corner of the intersection. Thus there's no rigid foundation for the pipework and vibration from traffic is the main problem rather than compression from traffic directly above it.

Anyway, yesterday afternoon, there was half a dozen of the purple-clad contractors peering into it. They seem to be the guys doing the horizontal drilling, pipe laying and pulling on the ring road expansion. Poor buggers seem to have inherited an ongoing problem.
