I was asleep at the time, I heard a big noise but I didn’t get up. Afterwards I heard the retaining wall of our building had collapsed, we live right above that part, you know how scary that is.‘ said a resident who lives above the collapsed section of road.

A man who witnessed the road collapse said he saw 20 to 30 centimetre cracks open up in the concrete after heavy rain. As the cracks got wider he said he saw two elderly people walking along the road, and shouted at them to run, and five minutes later the whole section fell.
