Many passengers and local residents have hardly noticed a thing, but since September 2020, we have been working very hard on the new pedestrian passageway under Amsterdam Zuid station: the Brittenpassage. In the very small space between the railway tracks and the metro tracks, we have built two enormous roof sections for the passage tunnel. Those roof sections are now ready to slide into place. That will be a tense but very exciting moment, which will take place on the morning of Saturday 21 August.
Would you like to take a closer look at this work live, as it is happening? You can do this on the morning of Saturday 21 August, starting at 08.30 a.m. Due to coronavirus rules and public safety, we can only allow a limited number of people. Only people who have registered in advance will be admitted.
There are three possible start times: 8:30 a.m., 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. A maximum of 30 people will be welcome at those three times. Half of them (max. 15 people) will go to the Amsterdam Zuidas Information Centre first, which is located in the WTC on Zuidplein. The other half of the group will be greeted on the main concourse of Amsterdam Zuid station. Both groups will be told more about the major work that is going on at the station. After that, both groups will make their way to the platform together – a maximum of 30 people in total. As well as getting a great view of the work as it is happening, you will be told more about the project. All in all, the visit will last approximately one hour. Are you interested in taking part?
