On Friday 8 July, the Strukton/Van Oord consortium finally lowered the tunnel section under Amsterdam Central Station. This unique event, lowering the section under the station and positioning it between the micro-tunnelling and sandwich walls, was successfully completed.
The section was sunk using immersion pontoons and was then suspended from the ceiling using suspension cables. The immersion pontoons can now be removed, leaving the tunnel "suspended" in its final position. Work will shortly begin on backfilling around the section.
