The Amsterdam Zuid station is one of the fastest growing stations in the Netherlands. In the coming years, the number of travellers will continue to increase. Moreover, the A10 motorway is one of the busiest motorways in the Netherlands. To improve the accessibility of the city of Amsterdam, the Amsterdam Zuid station will be completely modernized and expanded. In addition, the A10 motorway will be widened and partially brought underground.
The preparatory works for Zuidasdok started last year. This year the construction of the project will begin.
