AOT blocks Central Village entrance

Recommended Posts

Central vs AOT, this is worth a bucket of popcorn.

saying the outlet “trespasses the flying zone of Suvarnabhumi Airport”, which is located next to it.

I am a little curious about how a shopping centre can infringe on a "flying zone". It is not as if the buildings will block flight access to the airport. Are AOT upset that Central did not build on their land and pay them rent?

Given the sensibilities of the location Central should have had all the permissions in place before breaking ground, it would seem they are relying on their "influence" to get this over the line. Imagine having a shopping centre with not access to water (apart from trucked in). I wonder what the situation is for sewage.

Keep it in your pants until you get home. They don't want the AOT to claim they're taking the low-flying p!ss.

I suppose it does bring a new meaning to the phrase 'no fly zone'.

You simply cannot invent such stuff ....... too hilarious!

Are they aware that the internet is also accessible OUTSIDE Thailand or does CAT apply a "Somchai" filter taking all the goodies out before the data streams into the WWW? Just asking

Central Village – CPN’s latest luxury outlet

Thailand seems to be possessed with so-called luxury malls - the average Thai worker can barely eke out a living so they will not shop there.  Relying on the 'rich' Chinese and Indians seems to be wishful thinking since they travel as cheaply as possible.  Western tourist numbers are plummeting - perhaps they are trying to entice the Arabs from the middle east.

Not sure if anyone who has commented so far is really aware of the circumstances. 

 

The new shopping centre is built on the plot of land just below "nal" in the word "Terminal" in the image. At that point, planes coming in to land on the southern end of the eastern runway (shown directly north of "nal") are very very low and as such there maybe concerns for the planes landing, that's AOT's opinion.

The other concern is as follows.

 

The road shown north to south is the main road IN to the airport from the Bangna-Trat. It is busy. It's also used by people to get across the Bangna-Trat; you drive away from Bangna-Trat and u-turn under (shown on the image) the road in to the airport and pass on the frontage road the entrance to this new Central.Screenshot_2019-08-24-20-11-19.thumb.png.0343cfe4d31362ce53e9290e254f4b87.png

There is no other way to this Central currently than do this u-turn, so it is likely going to cause a blockage.

 

Central is therefore building a new off-exit from the main road coming south from the airport - the problem is there's the start of an up ramp to the elevated Bangna-Trat at almost the same location as the new off-exit being constructed.

 

An additional problem is after you've  u-turned under the bridge there's an in-road from the frontage road to enter the main road from the airport just before Central.

 

So there's about a 100m frontage area just before and in front of Central that could be a traffic jam (it could all work ok though, time will tell).

It's nothing to do with that.  Anyway that would fall under the remit of the CAAT and they have already said everything had pre-approval and the structures fall well within legal limits and they have absolutely no safety concerns.  And in your other post the AOT couldn't give a stuff about potential traffic jams.  They simply want to protect the millions and millions in revenue they enjoy each year from duty free sales.  The last thing they want is coach loads of tourists stopping off at Central to buy discounted luxury goods before they leave the country.

It's far easier to be 'concerned" with things you have nothing to do with, and can't do anything about....

 

vs....

 

Actually paying attention to and getting things to function properly and smoothly for the things that are within your area of responsibility....
