Initially, the A22 in the direction of Beverwijk was also not accessible due to the accident. A lane was later opened and the trapped traffic was diverted via the A22. Rijkswaterstaat reported around 4.30 pm that the A9 has been reopened.

Due to the accident, a diversion was set up from the Badhoevedorp junction via the A4/A10 and A8.

Around 3.30 pm, the ANWB reported about 7 kilometers of traffic jam, good for almost 50 minutes, on the A9. In order to resolve the traffic jam faster, there will be no bridge opening at the Bridge over Zijkanaal C until after the evening rush hour, Rijkswaterstaat said. The Police Traffic Accident Analysis has conducted an investigation.
