Auckland, New Zealand. January, 18th, 2012.

A SINKHOLE opened up on Dock Road in the V&A Waterfront on the way to the Duncan Dock after a water pipe burst during maintenance.

In a statement the Waterfront said the pipe had been repaired and water was being diverted.

It said a section of road had collapsed yesterday morning, due to a leak identified on Monday afternoon.

The Waterfront temporarily redirected traffic on its inbound South Arm Road leading to its Clock Tower precinct, fishing industry and Ports Control Building yesterday.

“As maintenance teams were already on site working on the leak, they were able to ensure repairs were completed today (Tuesday).

“Additional lanes will be opened tomorrow (today), once the concrete block has set properly. Management apologises for any inconvenience caused to our tenants and members of the public during this process,” the statement said.
