AMSTERDAM – Travellers, motorists and public transport will be faced with even more inconvenience in 2008 as a result of construction work around the Central Station in Amsterdam.

Considerable expansion of the work being done on the large square in front of the station will reroute cars driving in front of the station for several weeks and there will be less room for pedestrians, trams and buses. The project bureau Stationseiland announced this on Thursday,

The Central Station and environs will be under construction for several more years because of the construction of the Noord-Zuid line, a new bus terminal behind the station, and extensive renovation of the building itself, which dates from 1889.

Starting next March most of the square in front of the station will be a building site for the construction of a new underground metro station.

Tram tracks will have to be rerouted and buses detoured. A new temporary bridge will be built in front of the station for buses.
