Kladno to get compensation for noise pollution

The town of Kladno is to get 1.5 million crowns in compensation from Vaclav Havel Airport for excessive noise pollution over the summer. Maintenance work on the airport’s main runway has necessitated the use of alternate runways meaning that between now and September planes will be flying at low altitudes over densely inhabited areas. The Kladno authorities have said they will use the money for road maintenance.
