KUALA LUMPUR: Officers will be stationed to monitor around the clock the site where two sinkholes caused part of Jalan Taman U-Thant to collapse.

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan (pic) said City Hall officers would be on site as a precautionary measure.

"Ikram officers, various DBKL departments as well as other relevant agencies are studying and carrying out tests to determine if there is any further ground movement.

“At present, it does seem like the area has stabilised but we will wait for further reports before determining if there is any need to evacuate residents, ” he said during a site visit on Monday (July 20).

He said a second sinkhole had appeared about two hours after the first one caused a portion of the road and the outer wall of an apartment in Taman U-Thant to cave in on Sunday.

The cause of the sinkhole is still currently unknown.

A burst water pipe has also been fixed and water supply restored to affected residents although a portion of the road remains closed.
