CONSTRUCTION of Changi Airport's Terminal 4 has been completed and the terminal is expected to open in the second half of 2017.
By then, it will be the first terminal to boast a slew of initiatives aimed at enhancing passenger experience and operational efficiency.
Changi Airport Group (CAG) has obtained the Temporary Occupancy Permit for T4 this month, marking the completion of the construction phase, it said in a release on Friday. Construction had started in early 2014.
"For the next phase, we look forward to working with the airport community to prepare the terminal for opening in the second half of 2017," said CAG's executive vice-president for air hub development Yam Kum Weng.
In addition to the two-storey passenger terminal building, two multi-storey car parks providing 1,700 spaces were also developed. Other facilities constructed include a two-storey taxi holding area, and three vehicular and pedestrian bridges spanning across Airport Boulevard to access T4.
A 68-metre high ramp control tower has also been built 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.
When ready, T4 will have self-service and automated options covering check-in, bag-drop, immigration clearance and boarding. It is built to handle 16 million passengers a year.
