Transit oriented development ZuidAs Amsterdam
ZuidAs is the economic heart of Amsterdam. In order to support the further development of this area into a multifunctional area incorporating space for living, working and public services, it is crucial to improve the area’s accessibility.
The ZuidAs project is characterised by a high level of complexity due to the scale of the development and because the works include the improvement of accessibility by public transport and road. Because of this area’s important economic function, it is crucial that commuters experience as little hindrance as possible and that the area remains accessible while the works are being carried out.
Together with our partners, Witteveen+Bos has developed an integrated design for the construction of a road tunnel for the A10 national highway, which will run underneath the ZuidAs to maximise accessibility of the area without compromising on valuable building space or natural areas. Other responsibilities of Witteveen+Bos included conducting feasibility studies for the development of the tunnel. Witteveen+Bos also designed the master plan for the ZuidAs.
