Under the great exposure from the sun, the tarred road couldn’t handle that much heat and started to melt.

The climate change has many ways to cry out for our awareness. This Australian road should be a wake-up call for all humanity to join hands in perking up the environment instead of abusing Mother Nature.

Under the great exposure from the sun, the tarred road named Malanda Millaa in North Queensland couldn’t handle that much heat and started to melt, attached to about 50 car tyres.

Some tyres couldn't find the way out in the sticky components of bitumen when the temperature abnormally reached 24.7°C (76.4°F) at the end of the wet weather. And, there’s even a recorded case of a truck having all 34 tyres damaged.

A victim described:

“It was like we were insects caught in a spider’s web and we were sinking,”

Drivers blame the recent resurface that has been suffering hazardous rains and high heat is responsible for the bitumen to be loose and cracked.

Sharing the same idea with drivers, Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads considers the adverse weather being at fault.

The department also hatched a plan to make up for drivers whose vehicles got damaged.

This was not the first incident reported in Australia, the country witnessed the same issue in January when the temperature jumped to 38°C (100.4°F) as a heatwave hit the southeastern state of Victoria.
