Tram and metro stop Kronenburg out of order!

8 January 2019 by Kim Ouweleen

From 7th of January 2019, the metro and tramstop Kronenburg is no longer available for public transport, and neither are the bicycle lanes and footpaths/crossings of this junction, due to roadworks and renovations. This is scheduled to be the case until March 2020.
Tram line 5 now has a new stop in the vicinity of our building, called Biesbosch (around Biesbosch 1-79 / Eleanor Rooseveltlaan 31 -113). Another option is to take metro 51 to Amstelveenseweg and transit to bus 347 or 357 and exit at Graaf Florislaan.
