Cracks near toll plaza area (http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.asp?file=/2008/4/30/central/21099347&sec=central)


Big cracks appearing on the road at the Puchong Barat toll plaza of the Damansara Puchong Highway (LDP) are causing jitters among drivers.

There are cracks near the left toll booth from Puchong heading towards Subang Jaya and Shah Alam. The area is found to be sinking.

So far things appear to be ok, but drive extra carefully.

Cheers, m

i think if this is on elevated highway then be worried lah.

but if it is on the ground, nothing much to worry about. The worse case scenario is that a sink hole happens. When that happens, your car gets trapped inside. Even this, you will not die. Just some inconvinience

furthermore, we have no volcanos or earthquake in malaysia which may cause the ground to "seperate". so no sweat lah. just drive over the cracks. this is even better than driving over a soggy muddy earth and having your car get stuck.

you'll never know when the sink hole will appear and how big it will be...
remember the giant sinkhole just beside Tesco where they have to close one or two lanes?

I doubt you'll be able to survived if you plunge into the sink hole of that size together with your car.

So I ain't drive over the crack no matter what... as we all know that Puchong areas are very prone of sink holes.

Nothing serious. Just UMNO cracking up. Only need to worry around mid Sept. :D
