After Christmas it rained heavily here but for two very brief periods. I have seen worse here. Victorian public transport collapses when it is too wet, too hot or there are caterpillars on the tracks, which is odd because it often quite wet and quite hot, and travelling caterpillars is a natural thing.
There is an underpass below a rail bridge in South Melbourne near South Melbourne Market . For a day and a half Tweeters and the media referred to it as the flooded Montague Street underpass. The media even staked out the underpass to catch stupid motorists who did not the notice the flood warning signs, the depth gauge or that it looked like deep water in front of the them. Sure enough, into the water cars went. I have no sympathy at all for such stupid people, quite different to being caught in a flash flood. I am not commenting on that the morals of the media which chooses between getting footage or warning people before they entered the flooded viaduct.
South Melbourne's Montague Street Bridge is infamous for trucks and other vehicles striking it as they try to pass under. Perhaps with Montague Street being nearby, the name went wrong.
In this case Montague Street is innocent. The flooded underpass was the York Street underpass, under the route 96 tram bridge, formerly the St Kilda train bridge.
Trust Twitter? Trust the media? Not much.
