Default Road caves in at Chennai (Madhya Kailash junction)

Quote:
A large crater appeared on the road at the busy Madhya Kailash junction in Chennai on Thursday morning. While traffic police officials barricaded the spot, vehicular movement is slow as a result of the crater.

According to reports, the sinkhole, which is around six-feet deep, appeared at the tri-junction of Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) and Sardar Patel Road in the early hours of Thursday.

Officials say the road caved-in due to the impact of the underground drainage works that were being carried out close to the sinkhole.
