This holiday season, the pandemic means that a quick visit to the cinema, the theatre, a cafe or restaurant is off the cards. But if you still feel like getting out and about, why not take a walk around Zuidas? There are two surprising audio tours for you to try, in your own time and at your own pace.
They were shunned and unknown during their own lifetimes, but now the names of female composers will add some diversity to the streets of Zuidas. ‘They died sad and lonely – and that’s why now, after all these years, we have to honour their work.’
In the weekend of 18 and 19 December 2021, we installed the final two switches in the metro tracks. At the same time, 1,000 sq. m. of floor was replaced from the removable railway platform for tracks 1 and 2. The work went smoothly.
An important first step has now been taken in the development of OBA NEXT. Three consortia have been invited to submit designs for the new library and the offices in the Innovation District (‘Kenniskwartier’).
In the Beethoven neighbourhood, where a section of Beethovenstraat and part of Beatrixpark are located, housing is set to be built and an annex of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam is also being developed. Progress on both of these projects has turned out to be slightly different from our earlier reports.
From 22 July until 3 August 2022, major traffic disruption is expected on the south side of Amsterdam. Throughout these 11 days, the A4 and A10 Zuid will be closed from the Badhoevedorp junction to the S109 RAI access road. This is because of works on Amsterdam Zuid station.
Next to Beethovenstraat, a new switch was added to the metro tracks during the weekend of 4 and 5 December 2021. This was the third weekend in which we have been installing new switches. We also replaced the temporary platform that serves railway tracks 3 and 4.
Again this year, we are conducting a survey on mobility in Zuidas, in partnership with the ‘Taskforce Bereikbaarheid’ (Accessibility Taskforce) and the ‘Van A tot Zuidas’ platform. We will use the results to improve the accessibility of Zuidas. Is this something that also matters to you? If so, be sure to complete the survey.
Construction work started on the apartment complex ‘The Newton’ on 22 November 2021. The building will accommodate 101 modern, energy-efficient free-market rental apartments. They will be located in Kop Zuidas, the most easterly neighbourhood of Zuidas.
Next to the southern entrance to Valley, the first piece of Maurice Ravellaan is now in place. This avenue will be the access route to the new Ravel residential neighbourhood. A crossroads has now appeared where Mahlerlaan previously formed a T-junction with Beethovenstraat.
