Raised Manhole

By Mei Kuan

A raised manhole, at least 10cm (4in) above the road level, is spotted along Tingkat Hock Lee in Ipoh Garden South.

Its height could easily jolt a four-wheel or throw two-wheeler riders out of their seats.

There are three other manholes along the two-way road, this particular one found raised and with a diameter that spans into two sides of the road.
