Possible extra travel time due to testing Buitenveldert Tunnel

Last update: 25 April 2019, 14:32, Amsterdam

Between 8 April and 1 May, you may need to account for extra travel time if you plan to park at P3 Long-term Parking or P4 Basic Parking. There will be safety tests conducted at the Buitenveldert Tunnel, which will be closed to traffic between 22:00-04:00 on most nights.

If the tunnel is closed on your date of travel, please note that:

  • The P3 and P4 parking areas be accessible by the A9/exit 6 to Aalsmeer instead of the Schiphol-A4 exit. This will take an extra 15 minutes of time depending on your travel route.
  • There will be a diversion for the free Express Bus between P3 / P4 and the terminal which will take an extra 20 minutes.

The buses will also be diverted for those travelling to Schiphol by public transport, so please account for extra travel time. In addition, there will be fewer buses running than usual, and the local Connexxion bus service will provide shuttles.


Check if the Buitenveldert Tunnel is closed and if there’s a traffic diversion on your travel day by visiting: www.schiphol.nl/tunneltest.
