Michiel de Ruijter tunnel opened

Michiel de Ruijtertunnel

The Michiel de Ruijter tunnel, situated on the IJ-side of Amsterdam Central station, opened on July the 13th 2015. The new four lane tunnel runs underneath the bus station, parallel to the IJ.

Thanks to the Michiel de Ruijter tunnel the quay behind Amsterdam Central station is now car-free. Cyclists and pedestrians on the IJ-side will soon, after the complete reconstruction, have a lot more space. The road tunnel also provides for an improved circulation of traffic.

The Omgevingsdienst Noordzeekanaalgebied, acting in name of the authority, has asked Triple Bridge to asses among other things the safety management plan (VBP) of the Michiel de Ruijtertunnel. Mirjam Cauvern carried out this assignment, in cooperation with Witteveen+bos.
