Thursday, 19. January 2017 12:40

The Zuidasdok project has been preliminary awarded to partners Fluor, Heijmans and HOCHTIEF (ZuidPlus). The contract includes widening and partial tunnelling of the A10 Zuid motorway and expansion of the Amsterdam Zuid station. The design and construct contract is valued at approximately € 990 million (including tunnel maintenance for 7 years), of which 15 per cent for Heijmans and 42,5 per cent for both Fluor and HOCHTIEF. The Zuidasdok is a joint project of the Municipality of Amsterdam, ProRail (Rail Infrastructure Manager) and Rijkswaterstaat (Directorate-General of Public Works and Water Management).

Improvements to the A10, the junctions De Nieuwe Meer and Amstel, and the construction of the new Amsterdam Zuid station are necessary for accessibility of the Zuidas business district. Partial tunnelling will create new public space and improve quality of life in the area. Space will also be created for the new Amsterdam Zuid station to enable it to expand and become a high-quality public transport hub.

The contract is expected to be definitely awarded mid-February. Subsequently, a re-baseline phase will commence during which the project will be fleshed out further with the client. The works outside will start mid-2019. The project is expected to be completed around 2028.

This preliminary award is in line with the selective recruitment policy of Heijmans, under which major works are accepted and projects realized in collaboration with partners that have a solid track record in their field.
