N207 Nieuw-Vennep

The widening of the N207 provincial highway in the Noord-Holland province was kicked off yesterday. The N207 will be widened from 1x2 to 2x2 lanes in two phases. It will not be an expressway, because the traffic signals will remain in place. The current N207 carries 26.000 - 29.000 vehicles per day and is severely saturated. The road crosses two railways and a couple of canals, and mainly serves regional traffic in southern Noord-Holland province. The project will be completed in two phases in the summers of 2013 and 2014.

Nice pic!

A4 Halsteren - Dinteloord progression

All the pics that I took can be found here

Activity near exit Halsteren: working on the median?


Lagemetenweg looking north: Trucks were driving over the new road here after they had dumped their stuff near Klutsdorp, they all drove over the entire new road and got back on public roads on top of the exit Halsteren:


They were still working next to the road:


It's a pipe being relocated: the current pipe crosses the new road diagonally:


There were at all times at least 5 trucks here:


And of course we're going to take a look from the other side:


Near 'de Dassenberg' (small forest area) looking north:


Some extra trees had been cut sonce the last time:


From the N259 near klutsdorp looking south


This house is being knocked down too, they haven't progressed much in the past 3 weeks:

There was so little traffic on the N259 I decided to take some pics that I wouldn't be able to make in normal conditions:







(Annoying sun....)





Due to a deadly accident the N259 was closed between Steenbergen and Halsteren, only a small part was actually closed due to accident itself, the rest was closed because the extremely small roads in the polders were flooded with traffic (little bit of pun intended):


And a pic of the crash:

A sandbox for professionals

Here are a few shots of the A27 widening near Utrecht. The current 4+4 lanes will be widened to 4+6 lanes, 6 northbound lanes to create a continuous 3-lane configuration from A12 to A28 to bypass Utrecht.

A2 Tunnel Leidsche Rijn

The first tube of the long-awaited Tunnel Leidsche Rijn along A2 in the city of Utrecht opened to traffic today.

I recorded it at 5 pm.

Idiotic demonstrations in Vlaardingen today against the A15 extension (Blankenburgtunnel).

That's the A24

Just ignore NIMBY's, when you give them attention, you're giving them more power as they become more known.

Though it wouldn't be a bad idea if theNIMBY's are known in the country, to start something similar as the NIMBY's but then in favour of the highway. Like someone did in the case of the A4 Delft - Vlaardingen. Link to the site

Ideally I'd see ALL the roads on this map from that site being built:


Every single one of them should be built imho...
Would make a Rotterdam-Amsterdam trip a lot quicker too!
To be entirely honest, I'd rather see the A16 extended to Berkel&Rodenrijs-Bleiswijk-Zoetermeer-Leiden than to the A13, that is only really re-reouting some traffic off the A20, but doesn't make the trip in any way shorter or quicker ( when the A13/A20 aren't congested). Would also make the trip from Rotterdam-east and Capelle ad Ijssel and that region, to The Hague FAR shorter ( Extended A16-A12 is better than A20-A16/A13-A13-A4).

A28 congestion down 96%

A28 Zwolle - Meppel

Congestion has been reduced to virtually zero since the widening of the A28 motorway between Zwolle and Meppel has been completed. Preliminary figures show a 96% decrease in traffic congestion since completion in May and October, the most recent month with traffic congestion data available, as published by the Overijssel provincial government.

I agree.
I could do as proef person on this stretch of A28.
Almost 3 years every Monday from beginning of A28 (north) to the end of A50 (on south). The worst was 2010 and 2011 on Q1 and Q2. Delays and time I spent there was part of my life And now driving almost non-stop 120-126 km/h on the same stretch Good job was done.

I'd add another road: an A13/A29 connection through Rotterdam. Mostly an elevated freeway + a 4-km tunnel in the central area.

I know - pipe dream.
