Since hair salons were ordered closed last month in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus, more and more hairdressers in the Netherlands have decided to go underground. They offer their services on Facebook or Marktplaats, or simply respond to customers calling them. And there is no shortage of these. "It's big business," one of multiple hairdressers said to RTL Nieuws.
Amsterdam has the longest escalator in the Netherlands as of Tuesday. The 47-meter escalator was put in place in the newly-built Vijzelgracht metro station on Tuesday morning.
The Amsterdam public transit authority, GVB, has released new video footage of the still under construction Noord-Zuid underground metro line. Although still incomplete, a camera-mounted drone has captured footage of the route, giving people an insider's look at the over €3 billion project.
