Two large sink holes caused some chaos in the KL city centre today at the Jalan Pudu/Jalan Imbi traffic lights intersection, where a 35 metre long underground road tunnel is being built by DBKL– the first measuring about 12m deep and 19m wide appeared at 10.40am and the other at around 12.20pm.
*Monorail services between Imbi and Hang Tuah stations has been suspended until further notice.
*DBKL warns that half the city could suffer a black out if a TNB power cable there is affected by water.
* City Hall and Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) point fingers at each other – with DBKL claiming a burst water pipe caused the collapse, while Syabas claims tunnel excavation works caused a mains to burst.
*Nine areas in the vicinity faced water supply interruption and low water pressure.
*Motorists advised to avoid area.
