Clark Airport Looked Into The Possibility Of Contractors Using Substantial Materials
CLARK AIRPORT – The Clark Airport checked for possible use of substantial materials after it resumes operations later at 4pm.
Reported casualties after the 6.1 magnitude earthquake are now at 16 confirmed deaths. And there were 24 damaged structures.
Among the 24 damaged structures, is Clark International Airport in Manila. Some parts of the terminal’s structure collapsed after the earthquake last Monday (April 22, 2019).
This is based on an article from Inquirer. According to the article,
Authorities reported that the damages in the airport costed P30 million.
Jaime Melo, the president of Clark International Airport Corporation explained the process of quality assurance in an interview with dzMM.
The following is his actual statement:
“Chinecheck po natin yan, yung mga nahulog na parte, iniimbestigahan po natin yan, mini measure. Ibabangga po natin sa kontrata years ago with the contractor.”
“We’re checking on it, the parts that have collapsed. We investigate and measure it. We’ll compare it to the contract [contents] years ago with the contractor.”
Jaime Melo also said that they are in the position to sue the contractor if they used sub-standard materials. And that they will not allow the use of sub-standard materials.
Loss of income due to the temporary suspension of operations in the airport is also currently being looked at by the airport’s management.
Meanwhile, reconstruction of the damaged facilities will continue and is expected to be fully operational later this day.
That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
