A burst pipe in the CBD has caused the road to cave in.

NEWCASTLE CBD – A burst pipe at the intersection of Scott and Sutherland streets has caused parts of the road to cave in this afternoon.

According to the workers, the matter was reported to the municipality this morning.

A fire hydrant nearby was opened to release some of the pressure due to the repairs done to the damaged pipe.
