A four-feet wide hole appeared at the Rampura flyover on National Highway 8 in Gurugram. Local agencies put barricading around the hole which resulted in huge traffic jams on the route.
The flyover between Kherki Daula toll plaza and IMT Manesar, was opened last year by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) to ease traffic congestion on the stretch leading to Maneser.
"We have received information about a hole surfacing on the Rampura flyover around 5 am. Subsequently, road safety staffs rushed at the spot and blocked the road," said Anil Kumar, road safety officer of NHAI.
"The matter has been informed to higher authorities and repairing of the affected area will start soon," he added.
"We have partially diverted traffic movement and are also using service lanes to provide some respite to the commuters," Kumar said.
