Status of Rokin Construction near Muntplein?

When I visited last June there was construction in progress on Rokin as it approaches the area of the tram stop at Muntplein. Can anybody tell me if it is complete in that area or still going on? I would consider staying in that area again this summer but would like to know if there is likelihood of significant noise or any inconvenience due to construction. Thank you!

Yes, it is still going on, and noise is possible I think during the summer.

Nope, don't expect that to be finished at that time. It's a huge project... :(

Thanks for the replies. I love that little bridge by the hotel De L'Europe where you come from Nieuw Doelenstraat to Muntplein. My husband and I liked to end our night there listening to the Munt clock chimes.

Construction works are now on the site of hotel l'Europe but will move this summer to the other site of the Rokin.

Thanks tgv2, that’s what I wanted to know. If the area on the Nieuw Doelenstraat side by Oude Turfmarkt (?) is going to be a mess this summer I may consider staying in another area. I imagine if they ever closed that bridge it would cause a traffic mess. Hopefully your weather will be good enough for them to complete it quickly and they will have moved on by summer.

Well, it will remain a construction site for several more years as it seems. The subway line is planned to be running in 2013....

I didn’t know that what they are constructing is a subway line. Is the construction currently up by the Muntplein tram stop or further down Rokin?

Further down (more in the direction of the Dam)
