Whoa! Construction of Changi Airport Terminal 4 completed

The construction work for Changi Airport's latest passenger terminal building, Terminal 4 (T4), is completed, said the Changi Airport Group (CAG) in a statement on Friday (Dec 16).

The next stage of its development will be focused on its interior fittings, as well as preparing it for operations.

Construction work on the terminal, located at the southern end of Changi Airport, started in early 2014. It is slated to open in the second half of 2017.

 
 In addition to the two-storey passenger terminal building, the construction involved the development of two multi-storey car parks to provide 1,700 parking lots, a two-storey taxi holding area as well as three vehicular and pedestrian bridges.

A 69m-high ramp control tower has also been constructed to enhance air traffic controllers' management of aircraft movements, added the statement.

The T4 project involved 4,000 workers at the peak of its construction works.

Mr Yam Kum Weng, CAG's executive vice president of Air Hub Development, said: "The past three years have been an intense and exciting journey for CAG and our project partners.

"We worked closely with the architects and contractors to ensure that the development works were carried out according to plan, and witnessed the transition of our vision from architectural blueprints to fruition."
