Chennai authorities have sprung into action and are swiftly working to restore Madhya Kailash Road, which had caved in on Monday, to its normal state.

A portion of the road had caved in on Monday giving way to a large crater on the road.

Placed in a scenario that required an instant solution, the Chennai Metropolitan Water workers were present inside the crater trying to undo that damage.

An important road connecting the IT corridor to the main city, the Madhya Kailash is the second such major road to have caved in since June. Although the resulting traffic situation was not as bad as feared, the restoration became imperative. At the crater site, workers were present and their work was assisted by a tractor and a digger. A traffic police officer informed that at the current pace, the road will probably be fixed by Wednesday. However, the chief engineer of the Chennai Metro Water was not willing to comment.
