Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

Airports of Thailand (AOT) should seek temporary protection from a court to take immediate action to contain the damage to runways and taxiways at Suvarnabhumi airport, pending the pinpointing of those responsible for the problems, a veteran engineer said yesterday.

Suebsak Promboon, director of the Engineering Institute of Thailand, said court protection would allow AOT to make immediate repairs without damaging its rights under the contract that governs the construction of the runways and taxiways.

If new board of AOT, who assigned by the military government, waits for arbitration to find those responsible for the cracks on the runways and taxiways, it would be too late for it to prevent further damage at the new Bangkok Airport, he said.
