Put simply, landside is the openly accessible area for travellers, visitors and people collecting and dropping off. It includes the departure and arrival halls, terminals, the public transport hub, the roads and car parks. The renewal of Schiphol will bring about changes to all of these places. For example, we will be adapting infrastructure such as pipework and roads. This is our way of ensuring Schiphol is ready for the future.

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.
In 2018 and 2019 thousands of metres of cables and pipework were laid in position. We're also building new roads. Work on the Ceintuurbaan is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2020.
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.
