Sinkhole apocalypse: Welcome on the West Third Ring Road or the Crater Road.
Within half a year, this new Zhengzhou road has collapsed 15 times and will continue!
The last sinkhole has opened up this week along the newly built West Third Ring Road in Zhengzhou. This is the 15th collapse within 6 months. Pretty terrifying, no?
The reason behind the crater formations is unknown and still under investigation. According to officials, maintenance of the 13th sinkhole has failed on September 20, and a rescue vehicle found itself trapped inside and began sinking into the earth. It might also be related to poor construction material… The cement pipe inside the last sinkhole was full of holes.
So will this sinkhole apocalypse cease? Citizens now worry that the road will continue to collapse. Yeah… they don’t want to to be devoured by a rapid growing underground hole:
Hopefully they will not have to rebuild the road completely!
