On top of wet roads this rainy morning, motorists had to slowly navigate a traffic jam due to a large crack that appeared on Adam Road, which seemed to have caused part of the asphalt to sink.

The crack stretched across two lanes on Adam Road right before the entrance to the Pan-Island Expressway. According to motorists who were caught in the jam earlier today, traffic stood almost to a standstill, with some reporting being stuck for nearly two hours. The jam went all the way to Mount Vernon Road, according to the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

According to The Straits Times, the crack near the construction site was caused by an unexplained subterranean heaving of the earth. An LTA spokesperson stated to TODAY that they discovered the cracks around 8am and immediately closed two out of four lanes along Adam Road to facilitate repairs.

“All lanes have since been re-opened to public at about 9.55am after we ascertained that the road is safe for use,” the spokesperson noted, adding that LTA is currently investigating the cause of the cracks.
