The Amsterdam metropolitan area is surrounded by many great examples of geometric design and urban street design. Given the tight spatial and environmental restrictions, the highways demand complex engineering, advanced traffic management and construction challenges. In the dense urban area, a variety of road users and transport modalities claim their public space. Due to the upcoming e-bike use, a regional bike network is further developed and improved. The tours are guided by local and national experts.
The 2020 International Symposium on Highway Geometric Design, featuring the 6th Urban Street Symposium, will include 4 technical tours:
Tour 1: Amsterdam Beltways
Tour 2: Great Amsterdam regional tour
Tour 3: Amsterdam city tour
Tour 4: Fast bicycle lane projects
