Would land filling have prevented that kind of sinkhole?

See how large it is, and it looks like water is there too.

A trailer carrying diesel has reportedly sank when a newly constructed road suddenly collapsed, in Oweri, Newspremises reports.

Newspremises gathered that incident occurred at the Onitsha-Owerri federal highway and caused heavy traffic, resulting in people getting down to trek to their destinations.

Commuters are heard saying that the sinkhole appeared from nowhere just as the trailer was passing.

As the trailer sank, its content spilled onto the road.

People should investigate well before they write things for the public to read. This never happened in Owerri, rather it happened at Onitsha/Owerri Road precisely at Electrical market Onitsha. Anambra State has given a statement that it will liase with the federal government to fix it. Fake and under investigated news kills faster than Covid and Hiv.

Oga Baron,

Please educate me small about road.

How much does it really cost to build a 1km road with asphalt ?

How much does it cost to build a 1km with interlocking bricks?

How much does it cost to build with cement and iron reinforcement?

Which of this method go last long?

Lastly, why can’t we build a good that will last? what’s the reason?

Kutis2030:
Dey should arrest dat contractor.

Sink hole is not really the Contractor's fault sha.

And it's not only in Nigeria that it happens.

Basically, it happens because the structural composition of the soil below have changed, thereby, creating a void and causing the soil on the surface to collapse downwards (to fill that void).

Take for example, if too much water is added to a soil (maybe because of a leaking pipe) or too much water is removed, it can cause changes in the soil and lead to sinkhole formation.

Other examples of things that can cause it includes Drilling, Vibrations (from traffic for example), dissolution of underlying rocks among other things.

You can research more online.
