Cause of Airport Parking Garage Collapse Still Unclear

The cause of the collapse of the parking garage at Eindhoven Airport on Saturday evening is still unclear for the moment. The cause will be investigated over the coming period . Construction company, BAM, and Eindhoven Airport can say nothing definitive at this time.

According to the newspaper, Eindhovens Dagblad, it can take months before there is more clarity. Contractor BAM said this weekend they they have no idea as to the cause of the accident. According to the responsible company, the work over this weekend can not be the cause.

Eindhoven Airport has been very busy controlling traffic flow and passengers around the airport since Saturday evening. There were traffic jams due to the road blocks around the airport. Public transportation was also affected. The short term parking lot is closed and .traffic is being re-directed to other parking lots.

The parking garage will, once completed, accommodate 800 cars. The first section was supposed to be in use in two months time.
