Roads: Now that’s a pothole!

2008-01-10 00:00

A worker inspects the huge hole that suddenly formed at the intersection of Dalton Road and Gale Street in Umbilo, Durban, yesterday morning. “We believe a pipe underground burst and now there is water gushing out all over the road,” said Superintendent John-Thomas Tyala of the Durban Metro police. ER24 spokesman Derrick Banks said a truck turning into Dalton Road became stuck in the sinkhole. The truck is seen in the background after it was freed. Tyala said both roads will remain closed until the pipes could be repaired. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
