klia2 maintenance programme for this year 62 per cent complete


KUALA LUMPUR: The special maintenance programme using grouting injections planned for the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2) this year has been 62 per cent completed as of May.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said it had completed another four locations on the parking apron in May which accumulated to 24 out of 39 locations.

“The progressive maintenance has resulted in a significant improvement in incident of soil depressions and significantly reduced the occurrence of ponding at klia2,” MAHB said in its report on the maintenance progress at klia2 yesterday.

It said grouting injections remained the method of choice as it provided less disruption to the terminal operations, it added.

Grouting injection is a process of filling the cracks, voids or honeycombs, either in or underneath concrete, with cement grout in order to reduce the severity of depression.

Under the maintenance masterplan, MAHB had implemented the process at 11 locations in 2015, and this year it planned for 39 locations which include four locations at taxiway and 35 bays at parking apron. — Bernama
