If you are going to travel by road or public transport on the first Friday, Saturday and Sunday of November, you should allow considerable extra travel time and bear in mind about there will be closures and diversions.
Limited train traffic is possible from, to and via Amsterdam Zuid station and RAI on Sunday 3 November. The NS recommends that passengers consult the NS travel planner before they leave and allow extra time for their journey.
Traffic in the Amsterdam region is expected to be extremely busy on Friday 1 November in particular. The A10 South will then be closed off in the direction of Utrecht. Normally, the volume of traffic there during the Friday morning rush-hour is 10,000 cars per hour. The A5 and A9 diversion routes do not have sufficient capacity to cope with this amount of traffic. People who commute by car are therefore urgently advised to work from home or elsewhere and to leave the alternative routes as free as possible for those for whom car travel is absolutely essential. The three-day closure of the south side of the A10 South and the railway is necessary because the tracks and roadway have to be removed (and later put back) in order to allow the installation of the gigantic roof section of the station passageway.
