As a result, the tunnel was closed from about 5pm and the road was damaged, resulting in a massive traffic jam outside the KPE tunnel entrance.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) shared a Twitter update on 24 October at about 4.52pm saying that there was an obstacle at the Nicoll Highway entrance.

A high jam was seen outside the tunnel with lines of vehicles being seen waiting, resulting in a huge congestion in the area.

Some vehicles were also seen trying to turn out from the area by traveling in the opposite direction as a result of the huge jam.

Nobody was injured in the incident.
