The road collapsed as a rubbish truck passed over the weakened point about a week ago, resulting in the vehicle’s left rear tyre getting stuck in the hole estimated to be 0.6m deep. Kajang Municipal Council (MPKj) Zone 6 councillor Billy Sun, who received the report from residents, highlighted the matter to the council’s Engineering Department. He said the department officers and representatives from Indah Water Konsortium Sdn Bhd inspected the sinkhole together. “We initially thought there was a broken sewerage pipe under the road that caused the soil to lose its strength. “They found the presence of treated water inside the hole. “MPKj then highlighted the matter to Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd,” he added. Contractors appointed by Air Selangor conducting repair works on the underground broken pipe in Taman Putra Budiman. A check by the water concessionaire later in the week discovered a broken pipe further down inside the soil. Sun said repair works commenced immediately and was completed the same day. “The hole has now been filled and patched up, but the road will be resurfaced properly later. “This is to allow for the soil structure to stabilise,” he said. Sun said this was the first time a sinkhole had occurred in the two-decade-old neighbourhood. Residents association committee member Robert Liew suspected that the water leak had progressively weakened the soil structure over time. He said the heavy impact of passing vehicles over the years exacerbated the problem. The road is in use again. — By FARID WAHAB
