PHUKET AIRPORT ROOF LEAKS
New footage of a another leaking ceiling at Phuket International Airport’s Domestic Terminal was posted online on Monday. It has already been confirmed as “fixed” and “an incident resulting from construction” – and “not related” to the major roof leakage at the airport earlier this month.
The footage was comprised two video clips and two photos showing yellow buckets placed beside a line of passengers at the entrance of the Domestic Terminal. On Monday night, water was leaking from the ceiling at the entrance to the Domestic Terminal, Eak Sanij, assistant to Phuket International Airport General Manager Petch Chancharoen, confirmed yesterday. “We inspected the leak, and it was due to the demolition of the walls in the area where Phase 2 of the renovation of the Domestic Terminal was underway on the floor above.”
“Some water was flowing out of a pipe from the demolition,” Eak said. He added the Phuket Airport has fixed the leak by having the contractor shut off the water and repair the pipe. “It was a mistake on the part of the construction company,” Eak said. The latest leak exposed on Monday follows a leak in the roof in the corridor that joins the same terminal with the departure hall that was repaired on Dec. 8.
That leak was attributed to “heavy rains” and deterioration of the structure due to age. Eak noted that the two leaks were unrelated and in different parts of the terminal. “This is another case. The previous one was at a different point in the terminal. This one is from the construction works,” he confirmed. Source: Coconuts Bangkok
