The assignment for the design and realisation of Zuidasdok has been officially awarded to ZuidPlus, the joint venture of Fluor, Heijmans and HOCHTIEF.
The project includes the broadening and tunneling of the A10 South in Amsterdam and the extension and modernisation of the Amsterdam Zuid Station. The assignment was preliminary awarded to the combination at 19 January 2017.
The A10 South is one of the busiest highways in the Netherlands. During rush hours the highway and the ramps S108 and S109 are congested and on the station's platforms it is already very busy. The highway will be extended to eight lanes for through traffic and four lanes for destination traffic. The road will go underground at the level of the current station. Tunneling the A10 at the Zuidas will provide the outdated station with space for growth towards a quality public transport hub. Additionally two parts of a city quarter will be stitched together, which creates one single living, working and shopping area. The interrelationship of the urban road network, A10 and Station Amsterdam Zuid, Zuidasdok became a joint construction project of Rijkswaterstaat, the city of Amsterdam, ProRail, the Province North-Holland and the transport region Amsterdam.
