Bhubaneswar Airport wall collapses; no impact on flight operations
Bhubaneswar: An operational boundary wall on northwest side of Biju Patnaik International Airport collapsed due to heavy rains accompanied by gusty winds here on Wednesday.
The boundary wall surrounding the airport to a length of around 100 mts collapsed due to the torrential rain triggered by low pressure as a result of which rain water from the airport entered into the nearby Kargil slum.
Locals alleged the wall collapsed as it was weak following which the rain water entered into their homes.
However, the temporary barricade work is in progress at the airport.
Meanwhile, additional Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) manpower has been deployed around the area.
“The fall of wall will have no effect on flight operations at the Bhubaneswar Airport,” said an airport official.
