The Amsterdam Houthavens area has become a special, restricted traffic area for high-quality living along the IJ waterfront, thanks to the Spaarndammertunnel. The brand-new, 800-metre long tunnel, of which 470 metres is covered, has ensured that eighty percent of the daily 22,000 vehicle movements passes underground. The tunnel creates space above ground for greenery, bicycle and walking tracks as well as public transport, and connects the new residential area with the city centre. The connection of the tunnel’s technical installations was realized through the collective efforts of a collaboration that came about in an unexpected manner, but which turned out to be very successful.
The Spaarndammertunnel was opened for traffic during the spring of 2018. And with results I’m proud of, says Voeten. “And I’m not the only one who is entitled to be proud! This project is a prime example of the results you can achieve when you collaborate effectively. As long as you communicate continuously and work together, you can raise a project like the Spaarndammertunnel to a higher level. If it were up to me, we would work together more often. And as far as that’s concerned, I’m also not the only one.”
