Japan fixes giant 30 metre wide city sinkhole in just two days

The 30 metre hole was all but filled in within 48 hours, although health and safety checks delayed the reopening.

A section of road in the centre of the Japanese city of Fukuoka has reopened just days after a sinkhole opened up outside a busy railway station and threatened to topple nearby buildings.

The 30m by 27m sinkhole, which was 15 metres deep, was caused by construction work on an extension to an underground line.

The Fukuoka workers, who filled the hole with 6,200 cubic metres of sand and cement, drew praise on social media. One person tweeted: “I’m surprised the road reopened in a week!” Another said: “Impressive. That was fast.”
