The Netherlands’ Eindhoven Airport has revealed plans to build a new covered gallery on the walkways of the airport’s apron.
Construction will start before summer 2020 on the facility, which is intended to keep passengers dry when boarding or disembarking from their flight. The 600m-long (1970ft) structure has been designed to give visitors to Eindhoven a surprising first – and last – impression of the region.
The gallery will be powered by solar energy and reusable materials will be used in its construction. It is expected to be ready for passengers by the end of October 2020, before the winter season gets underway. Construction work will take place during the night wherever possible and there should be no impact on the daily operation.
Construction of this gallery is just one of several projects underway or soon to begin at Eindhoven – a new multifunctional parking lot, including a public transportation terminal, was completed in October 2019, and the redevelopment of the terminal forecourt and construction of the Airport-Boulevard is expected to be in completed by April 2020.
