Houses at Cornwall Gardens Rd monitored for cracks

 

SINGAPORE : Channel NewsAsia understands that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) is monitoring some cracks in the houses at Cornwall Gardens Road, where there was a big cave-in last week.

 

Contractors are doing minor works to ensure that the houses in the area are safe.

 

LTA, which reopened one lane on Friday, has back-filled the entire road.

 

Residents living directly opposite the major dent had to move out for two days because the cave-in had cut their water supply and internet connection.

 

No one was injured but the road had to be temporarily closed to traffic, after a big part sank on Saturday.

 

LTA said the crater measured 8 metres by 7 metres, and was 3 metres deep.

 

It is just above a tunnel boring machine where tunnelling works for Circle Line 4 are being carried out.

 

This area is located between the future Holland and Farrer Road MRT stations. – CNA/ms
