Going by car?

Going to travel by car anyway? Be aware that there will be detours and delays of up to 30 minutes. Check our Smart Map for the live traffic situation and the best places to park your car. You can park for free at P+R Maastricht Noord on Hoekerweg (accessibly by exit 52 on the A2 and exit 1 on the A79).  You can travel onwards from the P+R by the no.100 shuttle bus to town for just €1 return per person. For drivers travelling back to the A2 towards Eindhoven, there will be a detour in place at onramp 51 at Meerssen.

Please note: works are dependent on weather conditions

Whether the repair works planned for 8-11 April will go ahead or not is dependent upon the weather conditions. In the event of poor weather, the construction works and the corresponding discount offers will then move to the back-up weekend. The decision regarding the repair works will be made a few days prior to the initial planned works. The live schedule can be found on our website.

A79 Weekend closure

The A79 towards Heerlen will be closed during the last weekend in April. Maastricht Bereikbaar will of course be offering great discounts on alternative travel. You can find out more about these offers at
