Delay work in Amsterdam South, train traffic back on track

The large-scale work on the track and the ring road at the Amsterdam Zuidas have been slightly delayed. The train traffic started again later than planned on Sunday.



The large-scale work on the track and the ring road at the Amsterdam Zuidas have been slightly delayed. The train traffic started again later than planned on Sunday.

The trains to and from Amsterdam-Zuid station started running again around 10 a.m. That was 6.00 am in the planning. The train traffic at the station stopped since Friday.

Passengers still have to take into account changes in train traffic, the NS says. Other activities between Weesp and Amsterdam Centraal also make traveling around Amsterdam Sunday even more difficult. "Use the metro and other public transport as much as possible."

The work is part of the large Zuidasdok project. Among other things, this weekend a roof section of 3 million kilos was placed for a new traveler tunnel.

That was delayed on Friday night because the roof section could not be 'retracted' at night. This was due to problems at the construction site and the bad weather. "It remains an exciting operation," said the project management. "We are speeding up where possible."

#South axle from the air! Retracting the roof section for the new traveler tunnel was delayed last night. Fortunately, this morning it went fast and we have caught up. It remains an exciting operation. We are speeding up where possible. We'll know more tonight.

ANWB warns day trippers

The Dutch Railways and the ANWB warned last week about major travel delays due to the work. From the direction of the A10 West, the ring road is closed from the De Nieuwe Meer junction. And from Schiphol, the motorway is closed from the Badhoevedorp junction. Traffic is diverted via the A5 and A9.

According to the ANWB, drivers would do well to plan an alternative route or postpone their journey. "That also applies to day trippers at the weekend," said a spokesperson.

The project management expects the A10 to be open again at 5 a.m. on Monday morning.

The A10 South goes from four to six lanes and will disappear underground in the heart of the Zuidas in the future. Amsterdam Zuid station is being completely renovated, also to be able to continue to handle the large flow of travelers to and from Schiphol. The entire project must be completed in 2028.
