The start and end point for the Amsteltram (line 25) will temporarily be located at Eduard van Beinumstraat, on the north side of Amsterdam Zuid station. This has been agreed by the participants in the Zuidasdok project.
At Easter, which for us starts as early as 20.00 on Thursday, 1 April, we will be installing the foundations for two sections of roof for the additional passenger tunnel under Amsterdam Zuid station. This will also involve removing a railway and metro track. It promises to be an exciting job.
In spite of the curfew, we are once again working between the railway and metro tracks at Amsterdam Zuid station. Until 4 February 2021, we are preparing work for the widening of the platform for railway tracks 3 and 4.
From mid-March 2020, the offices in Zuidas were more or less empty. Most schools and amenities were closed. As in the rest of the country, local residents had to adapt their day-to-day lives. But what about the Zuidas builders? They continued their work.
The Amstelveen line, tram line 25, was put into use. Officially from Sunday 13 December 2020, but it is already possible to hop on. The renovation progressed entirely according to plan. Only the definitive stop at the Amsterdam Zuid station is still a problem.
Work on the additional passenger tunnel for Amsterdam Zuid station, the Brittenpassage, is slowly continuing. In April and August 2021, we will be inserting the second and third roof sections into position. Work outdoors to prepare for this is already starting on 14 September 2020.
