Traffic situation A2 Maastricht

Since the opening of the Koning Willem-Alexander tunnel in December 2016 the daily routes driven around Maastricht are changed. Pay close attention to the road signs.

Early traffic separation

New road signage means that through traffic toward Eindhoven or Liège (A2) and local and regional traffic (N2) will be separated early at the following locations: 

  • From Eindhoven and Heerlen/Aachen: just before the Kruisdonk interchange
  • From Liège at junction 55 A2 (Randwyck)

This factsheet explains the locations. If you are driving at these locations, be sure to look closely at the road signs both along and above the road. If you follow the signs to your destination, you will automatically be guided to the correct lane.
