N50 Emmeloord-Zuid

The new Emmeloord-Zuid interchange of N50 opened to traffic late last evening. This marks the completion of the expansion of N50 from Ens to Emmeloord, which started in 2015. It is now a four-lane expressway from the Ramspol Bridge to the Emmeloord motorway interchange with A6.

The new interchange is a partial one, you can only access it to and from Zwolle. It is located directly south of the Emmeloord motorway interchange. The new overpass of the southbound access road also features a bike path, there wasn't a bike connection previously. It's a good photo standpoint.

The expanded A1 from Diemen to Muiden as part of the Almere-Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport project has opened in the Almere direction today.

A16 Rotterdam

The final plans (tracébesluit) for the A16 extension around Rotterdam have been approved. The plans will be published on 25 August. It comes 11 months after the draft plan for the project. They want to begin construction next year.

Keeping up with this thread makes it seem like the Dutch are rebuilding their entire expressway system simultaneously. It's really impressive and I enjoy seeing how those roads are built. I think it would be a lot of fun to take a drive from the border with Belgium to the border with Germany some time.

Is the discipline of Dutch drivers usually good? I've driven on the 401 in Toronto with a similar express and collector setup, and drivers constantly switch multiple lanes at a time. Each lane usually also has a very large difference in speed. It's definitely an experience.

Much better than the US, bit worse than Germany.

You can do that as fast as 15 minutes on a motorway

It's a fun question though. Which route would you guys recommend for someone who'd like to drive from the Belgian border to the German border and see some of the main motorway sights?

There is so much that you will have to pick a few projects that interest you the most.

If you take the large projects from the past 10 years and the ones that are ongoing, then you can go over the A1, A2, A4, A12, A15 and so on. But combining those in one route is a bit to much.

N50 Zwolle - Emmeloord

I recorded the entire N50 today, detailing the many changes this road underwent over the past 10 - 15 years.
