August 2023: A4 and A10 Zuid closed for eight days

The A10 Zuid will be transformed into one massive building site for eight days in the 2023 summer holiday. Next to Amsterdam Zuid station, we will temporarily remove the motorway and a section of railway track in order to insert two huge sections of roof for the second station passageway into position. This second station passageway will be to the west of the existing one, in the embankment where the motorway and railway and metro track are located.


This work was originally planned for Ascension weekend in May, but has been rescheduled until the summer when there is less traffic in order to allow more time than just one weekend to complete this major work.

Utrecht direction

To enable the construction work, the A4 and the A10 Zuid in the direction of Utrecht need to be closed from the Badhoevedorp junction to the S109 RAI access road. The closure will begin on Saturday 5 August at 22.00 and last until the morning rush hour on Monday 14 August. Traffic will be diverted via the A9 and A5 (see the map below). Although the relatively quiet, low-traffic holiday period has been chosen for the road closure, drivers can expect significant increases in journey times, of up to one hour in total.

Ask your question

Drivers can make use of the Zuidasdok Ask&Go service and use Whatsapp to ask questions about driving and travelling during the works. There are two ways of doing this:

Amsterdam Zuid station will remain accessible by train, but with a limited service only. The metro and bus services will run as normal.

New station passageway

The work is part of the Zuidasdok project involving the widening and tunnelling of the A10 Zuid and the complete renovation of Amsterdam Zuid station. The construction of the second station passageway is a crucial step in the process of increasing the capacity of busy Amsterdam Zuid station. After its renovation, this station will have passenger numbers similar to those at Amsterdam Central Station.
