Airport renovations are quite hard to miss – and that’s certainly true of Schiphol. A lot has to happen in a relatively small area. We’re building a new pier and terminal, replacing roads and signs, as well as laying cables, pipes and other infrastructure.
Change is in the air … and on the ground
‘Landside’ is the area that’s freely-accessible to travellers, visitors and drivers doing drop-offs or pick-ups at Schiphol. That includes Departures, Arrivals, the terminals, public transport hub, roads and car parks. Changes have already been made to some of these areas, with more to come as works continue on the new pier.
These are our plans
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.
Always up to date
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 currently involved in part of the infrastructural adjustments on landside. As Marco himself said, ‘roads, intersections, pipelines ... everything that’s needed around the construction of the new pier and terminal.'
