In May of this year the Amsterdam Municipal Executive (comprising the mayor and aldermen) will decide on a package of measures intended to facilitate the movement of pedestrians and bicyclists across the IJ River, which separates the northern part of Amsterdam from the rest of the city.

The measures are set out in what is called the "Provisional preferred decision: Crossing the IJ" (Voorlopig Voorkeursbesluit: Sprong over het IJ).

A consultation procedure on the measures started on 23 January and will continue through 6 March 2017. All interested parties have been invited to express their views on the proposal.

The proposal is intended to make the rapidly developing Amsterdam North area more accessible. Improving the connection between the north and south sides of the IJ River is crucial to this development. Over 45,000 people cross the IJ each day and this number is expected to double in the foreseeable future. Consequently, more capacity is needed to meet this increased demand.] [The proposal is intended to make the rapidly developing Amsterdam North area more accessible by improving the connection to the south side of the IJ River.
