Raampoort bridge near Tweede Hugo de Grootstraat.
(meant as a thoroughfare between the redeveloped Jordaan neighbourhood and the inner city; has been put to use partially)

In the 1960s a bridge was renovated and widened to make the popular route between Rozengracht – Marnixstraat – Raampoort – Jan van Galenstraat – ring road A10 more accessible. When in use, it was realised that the corner cars had to turn between Raampoort and Rozengracht was itself too narrow to accommodate the increase in traffic. Cars were therefore directed in and out of the city via alternative routes.

Nowadays, the bridge is rarely used as a thoroughfare. Its original intention is still quite explicit through its extra lanes and unnecessarily broad sidewalks.

Widening of the Haarlemmerhouttuinen
(only partially in use nowadays)

In the 1960s, the municipality planned to increase a two-lane motorway to four lanes, in the same direction as the railway tracks to the West of Central Station. For this addition, 640 houses, adjacent to the Haarlemmerhouttuinen and Haarlemmerplein, were torn down. A sum of almost 1500 residents were evicted from their homes as a result.

Opposing this move, residents criticised the redevelopment of the area, stating that ‘the wounds should be healed, the demolition works must be stopped’. In 1973, the municipality decided to reduce the number of lanes from four to two again and proposed that the vacant space be allocated to the use of social housing.

Ring road overpass for the Schiphol line in the direction of Museumplein.
(never been put to use)

In the 1970s, the Dutch National Railways sought to establish a high-speed link between Amsterdam’s inner city and Schipol airport via Museumplein. The idea was to construct a tunnel to accommodate an underground railway station, serving the southern part of the old city. In 1978, Station Zuid WTC was opened – Amsterdam’s second largest station today, but at the time only considered as a temporary solution to the plans at large.

Terminus ‘Amsterdam Museumplein’ was never realised. During the 1980s, the city’s planning department changed their trajectory and in 1986 decided to create a fast connection to Schipol by extending the existing railway network. The first segment of the tunnel had already been built at this point. Situated under the southern part of the ring road, it was used ad hoc for raves. A few years ago, concrete blocks were placed at the entrances to block this kind of activity in the space.

Rail line overpass near the Gein area, providing a direct link between the A6 and A9 motorways.
(nowadays a tunnel for cyclists and pedestrians)

In the 1960s it was proposed to expand Amsterdam’s motorway network by constructing a road which would provide a direct link between Flevoland, the A6 and A9 motorways. The road would pass through the green area to the Southeast of Amsterdam.

After a slow decision-making process and protests held by local residents and environmentalists, the national government devised an alternative plan to expand the existing road network. This solution did not require the use of the rail line overpass, which had already been constructed. Cyclists and pedestrians use it today, by which it exhibits a rare occurrence where space is overprovided for the users due to its initial purpose altering.
