Accessibility

Zuidasdok will improve accessibility to Zuidas and to the northern Randstad conurbation. The southern section of Amsterdam’s A10 ring motorway will be widened from four to six lanes. It will also run underground where it passes through the heart of Zuidas. Amsterdam Zuid station is being completely renewed. It will soon be a hub for various forms of transport (and public transport). The station area will become a lot greener.

Diversions

The construction or renovation of houses, offices and facilities involves quite a lot of work. The first job often involves moving any cables and pipes that are in the way. They have to go somewhere else, which means digging up the street at a different location. Occasionally, roads have to be closed to let construction traffic through. Or roads may be inaccessible for a time, for safety reasons. In cases like this, diversions will be put in place for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. We make every effort to announce such developments in good time. In the immediate area, we do our best to help road users find the best alternative routes, by means of traffic signage.

The A10 motorway and Amsterdam Zuid railway station

The Zuidasdok project will be officially launched in 2019. This huge project involves widening the southern section of the A10 ring motorway and running it underground where it passes through the heart of the Zuidas business district. On top of that, a new station will replace the existing one at Amsterdam Zuid, and there will be a new terminal for all other forms of transport (including public transport). The construction work on Zuidasdok will have an impact both on motorists and train passengers. While the railway and the motorway will remain open during construction, Zuidas itself will be less easily accessible. We are already working on ways to get car drivers to use other forms of transport during the rush hour. As things stand, they already spend a lot of time sitting in traffic jams, and that’s going to get a lot worse while construction work is in progress. We are cooperating with local employers to develop alternatives to cars, whether leased or private.
