Changi Airport new runway
Site target to start on November 2014.
Penta Ocean Koon KV tendered an est. project value of SGD 1.3 billion.
Planning and preparatory works for the project have already started. For example, consultants are being appointed to advise on the specific land preparation works needed and to carry out various engineering studies.
Changi Airport will build an iconic mixed-use complex codenamed "Project Jewel", which will boost the airport's handling capacity to 85 million passenger movements a year.
The project will enable Changi Airport to capture the tourism market and boost Singapore's appeal as a stopover point for global travellers.
Envisaged as the "Gardens at the Airport", Project Jewel will offer more than just green spaces.
Project Jewel will be constructed on the car park site in front of Terminal 1 (T1), and will optimise the use of the 3.5-hectare plot of land. Construction of the new facility will begin next year.
