VIDEO: Fresh ‘sinkhole’ in Centurion

John Voster Drive in Centurion has been partially closed after the section between Nellmapius Drive and the Southdowns roundabout has reportedly collapsed into a sinkhole.

Ward councillor Gert Visser has denied a sinkhole had formed, but was unable to provide more details.

Enquiries sent to the Tshwane mayor’s office had also not been responded to.

Rekord visited the scene and discovered the road towards the Southdowns roundabout had collapsed and was closed to traffic. It appeared the earth beneath the tarmac had given way though no hole was visible.

WATCH:

Nearby Southdowns residential estate general manager Daleen Hennig said metro officials on site had this morning confirmed it was a sinkhole.

She said that it appeared a large water pipe under the road had been leaking and had caused the sinkhole.

“There had been a previous sinkhole on the opposite side of the road,” said Hennig.

“All indications are that the new sinkhole is making its way towards this location.”

She said this was a busy intersection that would only get busier when the schools reopened.

Motorists were asked to use alternative routes.
