Construction of Changi Airport Terminal 4 completed
Changi Airport Group (CAG) announced the completion of the construction for its new passenger terminal building, Terminal 4 (T4).
Marking the completion of the construction phase, the next stage of development will be focused on its interior fittings, as well as preparing it for operations. The construction work on the new terminal, located at the southern end of Changi Airport, commenced in early 2014.
In addition to the two-storey passenger terminal building, the construction involved the development of two multi-storey car parks providing 1,700 parking spaces, a two-storey taxi holding area, as well as three vehicular and pedestrian bridges spanning across Airport Boulevard to create new channels of access to T4. A 68-metre high ramp control tower has also been constructed to enhance air traffic controllers’ management of aircraft movements in the apron and taxiways around the terminal. Completed in under three years, the T4 project involved over 4,000 workers at the peak of its construction works.
For the first time at Changi Airport, T4 will see a terminal-wide implementation of fast and seamless travel (FAST) initiatives to enhance passenger experience and operational efficiency. The preparatory works in the lead-up to its opening will involve the installation and testing of key airport systems and processes including the new FAST self-service and automated options covering check-in, bag-drop, immigration clearance and boarding.
