Noord Zuidlijn – Amsterdam Metro

The BPV members went on May 16, 2018 for a test-drive in the Noord-Zuidlijne in Amsterdam. The new branch of the Amsterdam Metro started in 2002 and will now be opened with a small delay of roughly 7 years, with a total cost of 3.1 billion euro.
The construction was challenging, since Amsterdam is basically built in a swamp and buildings start to sink. Different techniques needed to be applied in order to build the tunnels under the city. The Noord Zuidlijn will open on July 22nd. /sl
