Changi Airport to build double-storey taxi-holding deck for safety and to ease in-bound traffic flow
Changi Airport will build a new taxi holding area that will make it safer and more comfortable for taxi drivers while they wait to pick up passengers.
The two-storey taxi deck is set to be completed in the second half of next year, and is the first at Changi Airport.
Costing Changi Airport $50 million to build, it is expected to ease in-bound traffic flow along Airport Boulevard.
During peak hours, tailbacks of up to one kilometre have been observed there.
The new taxi deck will be co-located with the Terminal 3 taxi holding area.
It will be able to hold about 300 taxis for the Terminal 1 taxi queue -- about three times the capacity of the existing T1 holding area.
There will also be amenities like toilets, shade for the lower deck and a canteen for taxi drivers who are waiting in the queue.
