Road over Metro tunnel sinks 15 feet

A huge sinkhole opened up on the busy Kempegowda Road, taking motorists by surprise. The incident took place around 10 am. There were no casualties.

Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) officials rushed to the spot as the land caved in right above the underground Metro line between Central College and Majestic Metro station. The sinkhole was around 15 feet deep, an eyewitness said.

BMRCL chief public relations officer (CPRO) U A Vasanth Rao said the hole was filled after following certain procedures.

“We filled the hole with sand and then a concrete mixture. It has nothing to do with our underground work, which is far below the surface,” he said.
