A lot has to be done 'on the ground' to prepare Schiphol for the future. That means adding facilities to handle more aircraft, travellers, parking and facilities. From 1 October 2017, several car parks will be broken down, moved, built and upgraded.
Schiphol Parking is also about to change
There will be many changes to the way you park at Schiphol after 1 October. The P2 car park will be closed so many parking spaces will disappear. However, we will introduce a new valet service to relieve pressure on P1. That means you can continue to park (or be dropped off) close to the terminals. Roads and signage will also be improved so Schiphol becomes more accessible than ever – for travellers, drivers and staff.
Here are the 3 most important parking areas at Schiphol and how best to use them, as well as information for Privium members:
These are our plans
This will be the new situation
Kiss & Ride revitalised
As traveller numbers continue to grow, we have made various adjustments to the Kiss & Ride area.
Completed: Schiphol Boulevard
The project to widen Schiphol Boulevard has now been completed. This gives traffic and suppliers more space to get in and out of vehicles.
New exit now in use
The new motorway exit for local traffic from Amsterdam is in use. Other traffic will flow better and drivers can now reach Schiphol Centrum faster.
1001 road signs in place
New roads need new signs. That is why we adjusted more than half of the signs in and around the airport.
Interview about the parking facilities
Marianne van Scherpenzeel is the Programme Manager for Renewed Accessibility and Parking (RAP) at Schiphol. She makes sure that all necessary measures will be taken when multi-storey P2 car park is decommissioned. She is also involved in the development and building process of our new parking facilities.
Interview about the demolition of P2
P2 has an almost eerie emptiness, and only a handful of cars remain parked there. This sets the stage for demolition works on P2, which began on 1 November. Project Manager Dennis Veltkamp will be supervising the demolition.
Interview about P1 car park’s new wing
We are welcoming more travellers to Schiphol than ever, which means we need more places to park. One of our solutions is to expand the P1 car park. Schiphol Project Manager Wouter Slotman and his right hand William de Graaf of construction company Ballast Nedam and their teams will ensure that these car parks welcome their first visitors by the end of September.
