SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT T1 EXPANSION
The investment for the project was estimated at $500m and involved work in several areas. The expansion added 7,300m² (increase of 10%) to the departures level to provide more space for passenger processing (check-in) and also for retail outlets, restaurants, cafes and passenger waiting areas. A new outbound and early baggage handling system was also added.
30,000m² of the departures was redeveloped and the Australian customs and immigration area was centralised to better serve the larger passenger numbers.
Two new multi-storey car parks with floor space of over 100,000m² each were built on the old long-term car park.
The new car parks built adjacent to T1 are connected to the terminal each with 3,000 covered spaces (bringing the total parking at the airport to over 8000 spaces). The car park is equipped with moving walkways and lifts to assist passengers with their luggage.
