Is everything I posted last year regarding changes at AMS sufficient for the V2 version you are currently working on? Or are you still looking for information or images on certain things? Looking forward to hearing from you on this! Thanks!
Please know that the start of the construction of the new terminal has been delayed due to COVID, and will not start for some years.
As a result, they will:
-Finish the construction of the A-pier,
- Prepare all the land required for the new terminal (pre-construction work finished, but will remain empty/vacant until the aviation market improves to warrant construction to commence),
- Demolish the current/old B-C connector, while keeping both temporary connectors (B-C and B-A) active across the apron.
This is how the piers will operate until the new terminal comes online sometime during 2025-2030, including the empty gaping hole of the vacant lot reserved for its construction.
Also, here is an image of the construction currently going on to double taxiway Q:
This is an 'in between phase' which will be finished in the next 1-2 years. After that, they will work towards the final state where the full taxiway will be bi-directional around 2025 (this will continue and has not been delayed by COVID, as it is a safety issue instead of the capacity issue).
