  • A79 weekend 29 April-2 May: the back-up weekend is Friday evening 27 May – Monday morning 30 May.

The decision regarding the repair works will be made a few days prior to the initial planned weekend. The live schedule can be found on our website.

Please note: Maastricht Bereikbaar offers are only valid in conjunction with the repair works and in the event of postponement due to weather conditions, the offers will then only be valid during the back-up weekend.
