"The stormwater collection system in the area failed, and crews have replaced roughly six metres of old clay pipe that was likely installed in about 1970," City spokesperson Mike Kellett said.

"Crews also fed a camera down into the stormwater pipes around the sinkhole to confirm the integrity of other pipes in the immediate area."
