The Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore


 Year: 2014

Developer: Changi Airport Group

Architect: RSP Architects, Planners and Engineers Pte Ltd

Tasks: Traffic Impact study 

Dragages Singapore Pte Ltd submitted a tender to Changi Airport Group for Project Jewel, which is a going to be a mix-use complex of retail and leisure attractions that links the entire three terminal together to offer global traveller to use Singapore as a stopover at the existing Terminal 1 car park. This is a 3.5-hectare plot of land occupying the existing car park. A traffic impact study (TIS) was needed to ensure the construction works would not impact the operation of Terminal 1 and the Airport operation. The consultant tasks were to check construction vehicle movement and to refine the permanent ramps for the basement carparks in order to gain more space with smoother traffic flow. Traffic survey and microsimulation was conducted to assess the changes.
