KUALA LUMPUR: Kuala Lumpur City Hall announced that “another sinkhole” had surfaced on Jalan Dewan Bahasa Pustaka due to a underground burst pipe.
The sinkhole in front of the DBP main gate is located on the stretch heading to the Loke Yew and Hang Tuah traffic light intersection.
The statement on its Facebook page advised road users en-route to Jalan Imbi to use the overpass above the road as it was closed to facilitate Syabas contractors’ repairs.
This is the third sinkhole that has appeared in as many days. All three incidents were attributed to Syabas’ burst underground pipes.
Yesterday, a sinkhole appeared on Jalan Pinang and caused traffic delays in KL’s already congested golden triangle.
However the sinkhole was patched up by Syabas on Tuesday morning.
The first incident was when a car fell into a sinkhole at Jalan Maharajalela heading towards Jalan Loke Yew here.
Pictures of the car tethering nose first into the 3sqm gap have also been making its rounds on social media.
