Summary

Rijkswaterstaat, ProRail and the Municipality of Amsterdam (MoA) are undertaking the development of a transport network named "Zuidasdok" in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The project involves the improvement of accessibility of the Amsterdam South Axis (Zuidas) and the northern part of the Randstad, by public transport and road.

The project involves the expansion and upgrade of Amsterdam Zuid station, conversion of both local and regional transport into the public transport terminal, widening of the A10 motorway to separate local traffic from the traffic between the junctions De Nieuwe Meer and Amstel, redesigning of the junctions at De Nieuwe Meer and Amstel, diversion of a section of the A10 motorway to underground beneath the central area of Zuidas and reconstruction of public areas.

The project will include the widening of the embankment along the A10 to accommodate the additional lanes, excavation of tunnels and construction of bridges and flyovers, removal of the Amstelveenboog (to make way for a new tram connection serving Amstelveen), construction of the new Britten passage under Amsterdam Zuid station, remodeling of Amsterdam Zuid station (to include widening of Minerva passage), construction of a new A10, including tunnels, removal of the old A10, construction of a new Amsterdam Zuid public transport terminal, re-construction of the public areas, including tram stops, bus station and bicycle parking facilities.

The project also includes the following developments:

A10 Motorway:

It includes the construction of a 70km of asphalt between the De Nieuwe Meer and Amstel junctions comprising 12 lanes in the configuration 2-4-4-2. It also includes two tunnels of 1km length; tunnels will be situated 10-15m below ground level.

Public Transport Terminal:

It will consist of four rail tracks, with space reservation for two additional tracks, four metro tracks, including double tracks for Noord and Zuid metro line, existing Minerva passage will get wider and shorter new Britten passage, a compact station which will provide both convenient and safe transit.

Open Spaces:

The project will host 120,000m2 of extra open space in central Zuidas area when A10 will pass through an underground tunnel, 8,500 new cycle parking facilities which will increase the total spaces to 11,000 by 2028.

The project will be developed in different phases in accordance with the Multiannual Infrastructure, Space, and Transportation (MIT). The MIT is a financial investment in the integrated joint solutions (programs and projects).

The initial exploration phase was commenced in 2010 and progressed until 2012. On July 9, 2012, the project reached agreement on the preferred alternatives and Structural Zuidasdok was adopted.

In June 2013, ARCADIS, Witteveen + Bos & AT Osborne were appointed as lead consultants for the project. Their scope of work includes engineering, EIA, planning, design and preparation of contract documents. AT Osborne will act as process manager of the project on behalf of ARCADIS and Witteveen+Bos.

A public consultation was underway from September 24, 2013, to October 21, 2013, to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which was submitted to EIA commission. Later in December 2013, EIA Committee, legal advisers, and relevant administrative bodies, granted the permission to issue an opinion.

The EIA Commission on February 11, 2014, at the request of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (MoIE) issued an opinion on the Drafted Scope and Level of Detail.

In August 2014, US$12 million contract was awarded to BAM for the construction of bicycle parking and Gustav Mahler’s Square.

In December 2014, MoIE, MoA, the Amsterdam Metropolitan Region (AMR) and the Province of North Holland (PoNH) reached agreement on the development of the project.

In April 2015, the government announced a design-build tender on the project. Later, in June 2015, a consortium of BAM, Volker Wessels and TBI; and a Zuidplus consortium of Fluor, Heijmans, and HOCHTIEF were shortlisted for further “dialogue stage” tender process.

According to the dialogue stage, the work will be contracted on the basis of a competitive dialogue. The tender will involve confidential discussions with selected market participants to discuss possible solutions to choose the best solution for the flow and accessibility of the area and the buildings. The most efficient and efficient consortium will then be awarded. A final contract will be awarded in February 2017.

In August 2015, BAM commenced construction works near Gustav Mahler Square and completed in July 2016.

On January 19, 2017, Zuidplus consortium of Fluor, Heijmans, and HOCHTIEF was awarded a US$1,220 million preliminary design-build contract for the project.

Finalization of plans and preparatory works are expected to be takes place in 2018 and the construction is expected to be start in 2019 and expected to be end by 2028.
