The Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department [EMPD] says it has partially closed Main Reef road in Brakpan due to a sinkhole.
The city's road and stormwater department has been on site since the sinkhole opened up on Sunday.
EMPD spokesperson Kobedi Mokheseng says the department tried to fill in the sinkhole with rocks and rubble but the ground does not seem to be stable, hence the road closure.
