AMS Accessible Amsterdam

To accommodate Amsterdam’s new residents, the city needs not only to expand its housing capacity, but also to consider accessibility. Given the exceptional size of the expansion plans and the limited resources available for new infrastructures, one can wonder who will pay the bill?

In addition, the development of infrastructure projects such as light rail, bridges and tunnels usually have a way longer timespan than the development of residential areas, and often national funding has already been attributed. In order to tackle the accessibility challenge of our rapidly growing metropolis, thinking about area development from a transport’s perspective is a must. This evening event will bring developers, scientists, architects and financial and economic experts in conversation about an accessible Amsterdam.
