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.

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.

Cloverleaf interchange for A6-A9 junction near Amstelveen, including two sand embankments.
(traces of cloverleaf have been cleared, embankments have been redeveloped as residential areas)

A straight connection between Amsterdam and Rotterdam was envisioned in the 1932 National Motorway Plan for The Netherlands, which would cut right through the present day ‘Groene Hart’. The plan was to create the A3 motorway to connect to the A9, but protests from environmentalists and the coming-into-existence of alternative routes halted construction.

However, in Amstelveen preparations to accommodate the connection from A3 to A9 were already underway. Spacious overpasses, collector and distributor bends, ponds and other landscape elements were constructed and, until a few years ago, remained as signs of the initial plans.

Recently, the national planning department eradicated most of the infrastructure and sand embankments – leaving only the ponds as a silent reminder of the envisioned motorway junction ‘Amstelplein’. Streets in nearby neighbourhoods still show signs of this unrealised plan, with names such as ‘Rotterdamsepad’ and ‘Spangenhof’.
