SINGAPORE - The open-air car park at Changi Airport's Terminal 1 (T1) will be closed for redevelopment on Nov 12, and new ground transport arrangements will be provided for visitors.
The closure of the car park site marks the commencement of construction works for the expansion of T1, as well as the upcoming Project Jewel complex.
Starting from 2am on Nov 12, drivers will be directed to park their vehicles at the nearest Car Park 2B located at Terminal 2 (T2).
The parking zone will be renamed T1 Car Park.
For those driving to T1 to pick passengers up, the existing Arrival pick-up point will be relocated to an area outside the T1 Arrival Hall. For travellers arriving at T1, the new Arrival pick-up point is located near the T1 Arrival Hall.
Drivers are advised to look out for signs indicating 'T1 Car Park' and 'T1 Arrival' so they can find the relocated car park and pick-up point respectively.
After parking at the new T1 Car Park, visitors can proceed to the T2 Departure Hall to take the Skytrain or a new shuttle service to get to T1.
The boarding point for the free T1-T2 shuttle bus is at Door 1 of the T2 Departure Hall, beside the Krispy Kreme outlet.
There will be no change to the Departure drop-off point for private cars and taxis, as well as the passenger boarding point for taxis at T1.
Visitors to T2 will continue to be served by the T2 Car Park 2A.
In addition to signs, Changi Experience Agents will also be deployed to assist motorists and visitors with directions and questions.
According to Changi Airport, the new arrangements are expected to be in place until 2018.
The expansion works include the construction of new ground transport facilities for T1 such as a five-storey basement car park, expanded drop-off and pick-up bays, as well as more taxi bays.
