I donch usually travel on that part of rd although I live pretty close by. Really disturbing that this is now happening in SG! :sad:

Someone in LTA has got some explaining to do to his management.
This is a very dangerous thing to happen, and rather difficult to accept for it to re-happen after being "fixed".

The water or soil movement under there is probably much more than expected and I wonder how much more 'refill' the hole can swallow up. Hope this is not like the tip of the iceberg.

Remember the indonesia case where the oil drilling triggered of an unstoppable mud volcano?

Actually, what happened to that one? I remember it but cannot remember how it ended...
