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.

One Way

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’.



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.
