Landside is an easily accessible area for travellers, visitors and people dropping others off or picking them up. It includes the departure and arrival halls, terminals, public transport interchanges, roads and car parks. All of these places have changed a great deal because of the redevelopment projects in and around Schiphol.

Facts & figures
A lot has changedt the past years on landside. We installed tens of kilometres of new cables and pipework. The junction at Handelskade, Havenmeestergweg and Herbergierstraat was reconstructed. And changes were made to the road in front of the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee base next to the crew centre. And we are working on a new Ceintuurbaan Zuid. The entrance to the new terminal will eventually be realized on the Ceintuurbaan. The good news is that existing routes, roads and workplaces will remain accessible as before. Where necessary, we will deploy traffic controllers to ensure everything runs smoothly. Reconstruction work or not: it will be business as usual at Schiphol.
We’ve been doing a lot of work landside since 2018. We’ve installed thousands of kilometres of new cables and plumbing. The Handelskade, Havenmeesterweg and Herbergiersstraat junction has been completely rebuilt. The roads for the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee post at the Crew Centre have also been modified. The Ceintuurbaan-Zuid has also been made future-proof. The entrance to the new terminal will later be on this same road.
Bye bye Havenmeesterweg
The Havenmeesterweg was ‘in the way' for the construction of the new terminal. Project manager Peter van Wijk shares the challenges and talks about the birth of a brand-new road: Koepelstraat.
Kilometres of cables
The new terminal at Schiphol is being built next to the air traffic control tower: right on top of all the cables and pipework that keep essential installations such as that tower working. The man responsible for re-routing the cables is project coordinator Steffen Kolfschoten.
Interview about the night of 1001 signs
There are new driving routes and signs all over Schiphol. Between 31 September-1 October, Wayfinding Project Manager Peter van Wijk was on hand during the ‘Night of 1001 signs’ between 31 September – 1 October. He looks back on that night with satisfaction.
Interview Marco Schravesande: Renovating Schiphol
Project manager Marco Schravesande is involved in part of the infrastructural adjustments on landside. ‘Roads, intersections, pipelines ... everything that’s needed around the construction of the new pier and terminal.'
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.
