New situation at exit 8 Leiden-West

From Thursday 24 June onwards a new situation applies on the A44 in the direction of Amsterdam, then exits 9 and 8 will be combined. Traffic from direction Wassenaar that want to use exit 8 (Leiden-West) will have to make their choice at exit 9 (Leiden-South). This road modification is one of the steps that will be carried out in the coming months to prepare for the construction of the definitive road layout at junction Leiden-West. In order to construct the new situation we will carry out work in the evening/night beforehand and exits 9 and 8 on the carriageway towards Amsterdam will be closed.

Exit 9/8 on A44 towards Amsterdam closed on 23/24 June

On Wednesday 23 June, exits 9 (Leiden-Zuid) and 8 (Leiden-West) on the A44 in the direction of Amsterdam will be closed from 21.00 until 05.00 the next morning. Also one lane will be closed. One lane towards Amsterdam will remain available.
