PHOTOS: Geyser 30 metres high after Manners Mall watermain bursts

An office worker took this picture of the results of a burst water main in Manners Street yesterday afternoon.

He published it on Twitpic soon after 4pm.

Omg! The guys hit the water main in Manners Mall, wrote Jithen Singh, who took the photo from his office at Eagle Technology.

Some minutes later he advised: Looks like the council has arrived to help with the burst water main.

Later reports said the emergency was caused by a digger working on the $11m project to convert the Manners Mall into bus lanes. At least one shop was flooded by the burst water main.
