In January 2007, a huge crater opened at the construction site of the Pinheiros subway station in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Officials said a passenger minivan had fallen to the bottom of a 40-metre (130-foot)-deep pit dug to facilitate delivery of supplies for workers, and the lip of the hole gave way to a landslide, taking with it vehicles on a roadway around the edge and dumping tons of earth, asphalt and concrete on them.

This giant 40ft deep hole opened up on the Mancunian Way in August 2015 - with fears the road could be shut for weeks. Traffic was halted in both directions after the crater - measuring at least 15 feet - appeared at the Ancoats end of the busy Manchester commuter route
