From Friday, 2 September until Friday, 21 October 2022, there will be further traffic disruption and potentially also noise nuisance in Beethovenstraat, between Gustav Mahlerlaan and De Boelelaan. This is because of works in preparation for the new Ravel residential district.
From Friday 26 August, 2022 until 05.30 on 29 August, there will be traffic disruption and potential noise nuisance in Beethovenstraat, next to Valley. We are carrying out works in preparation for the new Ravel residential district.
The first plants in Valley’s vertical valley were planted a year ago. So, how is all this greenery developing? We joined the landscape gardener to take a look. ‘It will still take about another four or five years before it’s all fully grown.’
From Sunday 7 until Sunday 28 August, we are carrying out works at Amstelveenseweg station. This will involve replacing the tramlines and renovating the metro stop, making it safer and more comfortable. It is expected to cause some disruption.
We are in the process of relandscaping the area around WTC Tower Ten. Before that, we will be replacing box piles in Beethovenstraat. In order to do the work safely, we will be closing the western lane to traffic during two weekends.
The former courthouse in Parnassusweg will soon be home to a museum of modern art. Until then, the building is being put to good use by artists. Dorette Evers has even transformed the two raised beds in front of the building into a paint garden.
Fans of construction have been regularly monitoring our webcam, which is showing a live feed of the major works underway at Amsterdam Zuid station. At times, there is a noticeable difference in the clothes that the workers are wearing. This is due to the nature of the ground in which we are working.
We’ve made a start. On the evening of Friday, 22 July, the long-awaited 11-day closure of the A10 Zuid actually began. Ultimately, we can look back on a successful weekend involving some really hard work. Only eight more days to go.
The bridge connecting Damloperspad and Jachthavenweg, just to the south of the A10, has been temporarily restored. As a result, it is at last possible to walk all the way around De Nieuwe Meer again, much to the delight of many.
The restructuring work on Europaplein-Oost has been delayed by four months. We will also only be able to include 46 of the 55 parking spaces planned. The roots of some of the trees are too big, preventing us from paving the soil on top of them.
The owner of the WTC, CBRE IM, has plans to renovate and extend the WTC Amsterdam. A meeting is being held on 11 July 2022 to discuss the plans with local residents. You are welcome to attend in the WTC auditorium.
