I could be wrong but I don't think the train will be sterile though. They might need to build a sterile corridor in the tunnel alongside the train, with moving walkways. Or they just keep using buses, but going to T2 instead of T5.

My recollection is that the plan is for a sterile walking connection from the satellite terminal to T2.

Correct. I also don't think the train itself will come until S2 is built. It'll just be two segregated corridors with the plan to eventually convert the domestic one to a train between OGT, S1 and S2 (if/when that comes). I believe the international corridor will always be just for walking.

I'm a big fan of the design as shown - expectations exceeded. Someone who claims to be in the know over at said that if you like this design then you will love the updated OGT design.

Looks fine.

Just build.

Article out with same renderings and some info on Urbanize today.

I echo others' sentiments. The design is nice - please just build it sooner rather than later.

I really like the design of the satellite concourse. It exceeds what I was expecting for the design. I love the tree like columns and "floating" walkway and really like the gentle elegant curves, the warm tones and varied textures of the ceiling, and the abundance of natural light.

Maybe this schematic was correct after all? The footprint and massing of satellite concourse looks pretty accurate. Hopefully we'll see the revised OGT break cover soon:

The latest update of Google Earth imagery (March 2024) shows the new gates L25 and L27 in Terminal 3 (F26 to open in the fall once the building that is there is demolished. It also shows the temporary gates at the Terminal 1 satellite concourse that will be used while the new satellite is under construction.
