Both lanes on Jalan Sri Hartamas 1 in KL had to be closed due to a large sinkhole that appeared after continuous heavy rain since 2 pm on Wednesday (October 20th).
City Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department chief Assistant Commissioner Sarifudin Mohd Salleh said smaller, less obvious sinkholes had been detected on the route since Tuesday (October 19th).
He stated that heavy rain around the city centre had caused one of the sinkholes to expand, obstructing two lanes on Jalan Sri Hartamas 1 towards the Federal Territory Home Ministry Office.
