A windstorm affecting the Netherlands this afternoon has claimed its first victim at the Van Brienenoord Bridge (A16) in Rotterdam.



And another one down at N302 Lelystad - Enkhuizen.



edit: N201 at Hoofddorp:


Another one. Notice these are all the same truck types, large but very light volume trucks with single axle trailers.


A9 at Aalsmeer:


A16 Moerdijk Bridge:

That last one is just plain stupidity... Crossing a major dyke with a empty truck in these kind of winds..

Can you get fined for this stupidity?

Trucks are bastards, we need more freight trains and river boats so the rest of us can keep on driving.

When I look at a map of Rotterdam area... I think of so many new/enlarged bridge and tunnel possibilities.

The access to Krimpen a/d IJssel is atrocious.

A15 Ridderkerk - Papendrecht

A15 is one of the few remaining motorways in the Netherlands with old-school signage and catenary lighting. The signs are illuminated from below, this was standard for overhead signage in the 1970s. Most are now replaced. Catenary lighting is also phased out pretty quickly.
