Buildings closed after cracks found

A supermarket and car park in Amsterdam’s Osdorp district are to remain closed pending an investigation by building inspectors.

Cracks have been found by the escalators and the probe is to determine if these are the result of a construction fault. A shopping centre in Amsterdam’s Bos en Lommer neighbourhood has been closed for months because of construction errors.
