News: Plan development for MKS Plaza work package ended

No feasible and acceptable solution found for MKS Plaza work package

Earlier this year, the parties financing the Schiphol Multimodal Hub (MKS) project decided to end further plan development for the MKS Plaza work package after it became clear that no solution could be found that was acceptable and feasible to all the parties within the resources available.

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, the Municipality of Haarlemmermeer, the Amsterdam Transport Authority, NS, ProRail and Schiphol work together in the MHS project to ensure that Schiphol Airport remains a safe and comfortable hub for passengers.

The package of measures for the MKS Plaza work package included modifications to Schiphol Plaza aimed at creating sufficient capacity for the growing number of public transport users. The implications of this decision for the development and future of Plaza are currently being examined.

The other sub-projects under the MHS project - Train, Bus and Preparatory Activities Forecourt (VBW A) - are continuing as planned, however.
