Stadhouderskade closed for traffic for 6 weeks

The entire Stadhouderskade (between Amsteldijk and Overtoom) will be closed for traffic between March 18 and April 29.

Stadhouderskade is a main road around the centre of Amsterdam, close to the Leidseplein, and passing in front of the Rijksmuseum.

The closure is due to large maintenance on the road, the sewage system, the tram lines, and work on the bridge at the Heineken brewery.

Traffic will be diverted with sign posts.

More information (in English) is on the city's website.
