Collapsed road fixed, traffic resumes

TRAFFIC has resumed this morning on a section of road that had collapsed in downtown Shanghai yesterday.

An underground wastewater pipe beneath the intersection of Hengfeng Road and Chang'an Road caused the road collapse after it burst and washed away sand and soil from under the road surface, initial investigations found.

The water pipe was replaced and the excavated area filled up with soil last night.

The collapse was spotted yesterday afternoon. The hole, about 10 square meters long and located in the middle of the intersection, was about 2 meters deep.

Police said no vehicle was passing by when the collapse happened.
