T3 will then be linked to T1, T2, & the airport train stations by means of expanded baggage conveyor & Sky Line people mover systems.
2.

Starting Spring 2015, road access for general traffic to Terminal 1 is being diverted (but not affecting buses & taxis). Aside from special signs, extra staff will assist drivers during this time. The redesigned forecourt is to serve as attractive reception area & the improved access road will enhance traffic flow.
