Suvarnabhumi dykes heightened to 4 metres
– October 19, 2011 8:03 am
The Suvarnabhumi International Airport Wednesday heightened its earthen dykes to four-meter-high and piled up one-meter-high sandbag barriers along surrounding roads, in a bid to prevent flood. Airports of Thailand (AOT) acting director Somchai Sawasdipol said that the Highway Department since October 10 helped heightened and strengthened the dykes, which would complete today (Oct 20). While the Lat Krabang Canal would be dredged to help support more excessive water, the airport also worked with the Royal Irrigation Department to drain floodwater in the airport’s south into the sea speedily. The airport also set up a sandbag making center by volunteers to assist flood-affected people.
