Map of Amsterdam road. Amsterdam road map (Netherlands) to print. Amsterdam road map (Netherlands) to download. Amsterdam was intended in 1932 to be the hub, a kind of Kilometre Zero, of the road system of the Netherlands, with freeways numbered one through eight planned to originate from Amsterdam as its shown in Amsterdam road map. The outbreak of the Second World War and shifting priorities led to the current situation, where only roads A1, A2, and A4 originate from Amsterdam according to the original plan. The A3 road to Rotterdam was cancelled in 1970 in order to conserve the Groene Hart. Road A8, leading north to Zaandam and the A10 Ringroad were opened between 1968 and 1974. Besides the A1, A2, A4 and A8, several freeways, such as the A7 and A6, carry traffic mainly bound for Amsterdam.
The A10 ringroad surrounding the city connects Amsterdam with the Dutch national network of freeways as its mentioned in Amsterdam road map. Interchanges on the A10 allow cars to enter Amsterdam by transferring to one of the 18 city roads, numbered S101 through to S118. These Amsterdam roads are regional roads without grade separation, and sometimes without a central reservation. Most are accessible by cyclists. The S100 Centrumring is a smaller ringroad circumnavigating the city center.
