Office of customs airfreight unit at IIA being shifted as building starts collapsing

ISLAMABAD: The authorities are shifting the office of customs cargo (airfreight unit) after the building of the unit at the Islamabad International Airport (IIA) has started collapsing.

Additional Collector Customs Nisar Ahmed Phularwal has said that the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) would start shifting the office of the airfreight unit to another place, comprising two rooms, on Monday.

He confirmed that cracks in the building had widened and the building was caving in from one side making it no longer safe to work in.

The airport manager and the project director of the IIA have also acknowledged that the building is no longer safe for those working there.

Every day almost 200 to 250 people come to work in the building and the situation is affecting their performance and creating hindrance in the discharge of their duties. They also expressed their concern and said it might be dangerous for people if precautionary measures were not taken on time.
