Preparation work such as the re-routing of cables and pipes and the demolition of buildings has taken place until summer 2016. Hereafter, construction of the actual Noorderbrug route project has commenced. In Maastricht East we have converted the Viaductweg/Willem Alexanderweg junction into an interchange where traffic can flow uninterrupted. On the western bank we have worked on the construction of the new traffic structure as of summer 2016. We have constructed the landing of the Noorderbrug on the Bosscherveld industrial estate and we have extended the Belvédèrelaan in the north through to Brusselseweg. We have also adjusted the Fort Willemweg/Cabergerweg junction so that it connects to the new landing. It is expected that traffic will be able to use the new roads in summer 2017. The completely new east-west connection was completed at the end of 2018.
To ensure continued accessibility, the work planning was coordinated with other major traffic projects such as A2 Maastricht which was simultaneous under way in the city.
Planning in terms of the main features of the Noorderbrug route looks as follows:
The Noorderbrug route project has been completed in five construction phases.
