Damage from massive sinkhole repaired in one week in Japan

A Japanese city has reopened a busy street that collapsed into a giant sinkhole, after workers laboured around the clock for a week to repair the damage.


The gigantic sinkhole, measuring around 30 metres wide and 15 metres deep, appeared last Tuesday in a busy business district in the southwestern city of Fukuoka, swallowing part of a five-lane street.

The sinkhole, apparently triggered by subway construction in the area, had exposed the support columns of nearby buildings at a traffic intersection.

Japanese workers toiled continuously for a week, dumping huge amounts of wet cement and sand into the gaping hole and fixing electricity, gas and water lines that had stopped following the accident.
