Structural work ready for new underpass Contactweg – with bicycle bridge
The underpass construction is now complete.
As more trains will be using the train track along Nieuwe Hemweg, a new grade separated crossing is being built at Contactweg. A replacement for the present level crossing of Kabelweg, which currently causes congestion and is risky. The design includes cycle paths for cyclists to bridge the barrier. The grade separated crossing will open January '22.
At the moment, further work is being done on the surrounding roads so that they connect well with the new underpass. In the coming year, the municipality of Amsterdam will also build a roundabout at Contactweg and the intersections of Nieuwe Hemweg/A10 will be adapted.
