Cause of sinkhole still unknown

A sinkhole that appeared near Shelly Bay last month is still a mystery.

A Ministry of Public Works spokeswoman said an investigation found the hole, which appeared on North Shore Road on April 2, was not the result of a pipe leak.

She added caves are also found in that area.

But she said: “The full reasons remain inconclusive.”

The sinkhole was about a foot wide and several feet deep.

It was later filled in by a public works crew.

The ministry said it continued to monitor the area.

Anyone with questions or concerns should call 501-3200.
