Noise dispute over third runway revives

The ongoing dispute between residents living near Suvarnabhumi airport and airport management has reared up again since the announcement of plans for a third and fourth runway. 

Residents have complained about noise pollution and other issues since the international airport opened in September 2006.

Thanaphan Suksa-ard, an academic with the Department of Environmental Quality Promotion who has studied the impact of the airport on the residents, said the issues have not been resolved and yet the Airports of Thailand (AoT) will press on with the additional runways, which stand to affect an even larger number of people.
