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’.

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.

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.
