The land subsidence near Sonargaon intersection got worse yesterday evening with more structures sinking into a gaping hole that got even bigger. One side of the Panthapath had to be closed to traffic for a few hours. About 25 feet long chunk of land sank into the foundation ditch for the under construction National Bank Twin Tower, as the remaining shore piling collapsed around 8:00pm. Photo: Palash Khan
