Breaking – Possible ‘Sinkhole’ – Developing Story – North/West Edinburgh

Parkgrove Terrace facing West

Parkgrove Terrace facing West

Went to the shops and in the 10 minutes I was in my car going to the shops and back it rained about 10 days worth in 5 minutes, I was driving on this road and water was gushing up 3 feet+, then the road sank and started to crack. Some neighbours and friends put bins on the road so no car can drive over it, as if a car tries to drive over it there is a chance the car could weaken an already poor area of road and fall in. As of when I left the Fire Brigade had came and went doing nothing, we called the Council/Government and police over an hour ago and we all had to get home, so this area of road is weak, getting weaker and sinking in-front of us, if the police don’t hurry and it’s been well over an hour some idiot will remove the bins and drive over this. Breaking Edinburgh news, and around the corner from my house and down the hill a little. There are feces and worse spewing out this hole about 20 foot by 20 square

  2. Just all smelt the sewers at 9pm 😀 Was fixed by morning…I blogged it of course. Well when I say ‘fixed’, I mean secured and blocked..

    • Nope, just our noses thankfully. But they are having to remove 200Sq/f of road and replace. That could take 6 months, but we are hitting Summer soon here, so should get weather to fix it for the last time….
      Guys who live in that street offered to do it free, but Government have fiscal holdings on the work.
