40 m-section of jakarta-cikampek toll road subsides

Karawang, W Java (ANTARA News) - The 40 to 50-meter section of the Jakarta-Cikampek toll road in West Java`s Karawang district subsided early Monday because of ground movement, a spokesman of state toll road operator PT Jasa Marga said.

The subsided section of the toll road at kilometer 47 in the direction of Jakarta is 40-50 meters long, 6.1 meters wide and 30-35 cm deep, the spokesman who refused to be named said.

A number of workers repaired the subsided section of the toll road on Monday afternoon, an Antara journalist observed.

The repair work caused traffic congestion of tens of kilometers up to Cikampek town as drivers heading to Jakarta must slow down their vehicles.
