The Rijksweg 9 is a Dutch highway , the north-south direction by Noord-Holland runs. It consists of the motorway ( Autosnelweg A9 ) and a car road ( Autoweg N9 ). Rijksweg 9 begins at Knooppunt Diemen in the east of Amsterdam and runs through Amstelveen , Beverwijk and Alkmaar to Den Helder .


Rijksweg 9 begins as a motorway at the Diemen motorway junction between the municipalities of Gooise Meren and Diemen , southeast of Amsterdam. The motorway then crosses the Amsterdam district of Zuidoost and meets the motorway 2 at the elongated Knooppunt Holendrecht . From there it runs in a north-westerly direction through the municipalities of Amstelveen and Haarlemermeer past Amsterdam. It runs past Schiphol Airport and Haarlem and virtually forms a second, outer motorway ring around Amsterdam.

Between Velsen and Beverwijk , the road crosses under the North Sea Canal in the Wijkertunnel, which opened in 1996 . The section of the A9 through Beverwijk, which is no longer required, is now in operation as Rijksweg 22 .

Then Rijksweg 9 continues north to Alkmaar. From the Knooppunt Kooimeer it runs as the N9 expressway to the west as part of a ring around Alkmaar past the city. On the northernmost section, the road follows the North Holland Canal to De Kooy , a suburb of the municipality of Den Helder. From the end of the N9, the N250 continues to the port of Den Helder, where there are ferry connections to Texel , among others .



Excerpt from the Rijkwegenplan 1965. The routes that existed at the time are black, the plans are in red.

Originally the Rijksweg 9 connected Haarlem with Den Helder, only later parts of the Rijksweg 6 in the south of Amsterdam were assigned to the Autobahn 9. The expansion of the road to the motorway began in the 1950s near Uitgeest , and in the following decades the motorway between Alkmaar and Knooppunt Holendrecht was completed. The last section between Holendrecht and Knooppunt Diemen was inaugurated in 1982 .

Construction projects

Rijksweg 9 was expanded and rebuilt in numerous places.

Badhoevedorp bypass

In the 1960s, the motorway was built across the town of Badhoevedorp in the Haarlemermeer municipality . Since the year 2000, several plans have been discussed to rebuild the motorway in this section. In 2005 the final decision was made to create a bypass and to redesign the Badhoevedorp interchange. Planning began in 2007, and in 2012 the plan was approved by the Raad van State . End of 2016, the bypass in a direction of travel for was for traffic released in April 2017 followed the opposite direction.

Expansion of Holendrecht - Diemen

As part of the Schiphol - Amsterdam - Almere project , the A9 is being widened between the Holendrecht and Diemen crosses and relocated to a tunnel, the Gaasperdammertunnel . Work on this section began in 2014 and completion is scheduled for November 2020.
