North-South Metro Line

Project description

One of the most challenging international metro projects of the last decade is the North/South Metro Line in Amsterdam. To relieve the existing public transport system (bus, tram, metro and ferry lines) in and around Amsterdam, the existing metro system will be complemented by an additional 5th line, the North-South line. The new line is expected to provide transport for approximately 200,000 people a day. The 1st part of the line extends from the A10 ring road in Amsterdam North to the A10 ring road in Amsterdam South and has a length of 9.5-km.
