Gday Ross -
Good news is there are mappers out there who'd love the challenge of
fixing this intersection up, so instead of letting this bring you
down, I think a better idea is to report this on openstreetbugs. The
Melbourne region is 'clean' of bugs which to me indicates either
nobody reports them, or somebody does a great job at fixing them.
Also I read somewhere that OSM encourages contributors to "be bold
when it comes to fixing others mistakes", so I wouldn't hesitate to
dive in and get your hands dirty if you're keen.
PS - my first post to the list. Please forgive me if I've not followed
some special protocol.
