Japan Fixes Fukuoka City Sinkhole In 2 Days
by Rokas L
The Japanese once again proved that their workmanship and efficiency are top level. A 30m by 27m and 15m deep sinkhole opened up outside a busy railway station in the city of Fukuoka, damaging the road and threatening nearby buildings. However, it took only 48 hours to repair power cuts, restore gas and water supplies, as well as fill everything with 6,200 cubic metres of sand and cement.
According to the mayor Soichiro Takashima, the affected ground is now 30 times stronger than before. The workers involved in this engineering project have been praised by social media and everyone are happy that there wasn't a single report of injuries.
