Diameter: 6,88m
Length: 83m
Total length bored tunnels: 2x 3,7km
Costs: 15 million (2x)
TBM Status: The first tunnel boring machine just started (now 377 meter on her way - june 2, 2010) from Amsterdam Centraal to Rokin, after 2 times from CS to Rokin, she will be moved to Europaplein and bore with the other TBM to the north first to Ceintuurbaan, than Vijzelgracht and ending at Rokin. A little bit complicated, but they decided to do this, because not all stations are yet ready to recieve a TBM and they are trying to save some time.

There's a thread on the Amsterdam metro system already, which can be found here.

Could this thread be merged with the other one?

Hmm, that is a thread for the new subway cars only (AMSYS in the title). I didn't think that is very logical. But a new or merger with a new title or this title sounds better.

Will the numbers of the lines be changed? In the renders I see M1, M2 and M4 instead of 51, 53 and 54.

Nope. Unfortunately, xlchris is misinformed. These renders do not represent the final design for the Oostlijn station renovations; they were rejected a while ago. New renders of the final design are not available yet.

Furthermore, the Amsterdam metro system does not really have its own official logo. Instead, the corporate GVB logo is used (usually in combination with the name, as shown below):

PTA | Passenger Terminal Amsterdam

The PTA is located not far from Amsterdam Centraal Station. With an average of 100 cruise calls per year, Amsterdam is planning to build a second terminal. Besides cruise ships, also river cruises to Germany and Switzerland are making use of the PTA.

Yes I see, it covers your metro section. But in my opinion, there aren't a lot of threads about the Amsterdam public transportation.
So I think it's logical and convenient to show all the public transportation in one thread.

All done. Amsterdam is actually listed on the Thread Finder. Please try to make sure your city is not listed before you start a thread.
