N35 Nijverdal - Wierden

The minister of transportation has selected the preferred alternative for the N35 upgrade between Nijverdal and Wierden.

The preferred alternative is a new alignment of 2x2 N35 along the existing railroad, called the 'northern variant' (as opposed to upgrading the existing road, called the 'southern variant'). It includes two grade-separated interchanges at Nijverdal and Wierden-West. Included in the process was a financing deal: € 121.5 million of which the national government pays € 50 million, the rest will be financed by Overijssel province and municipalities involved.



Construction is planned to begin in 2019. Recent polls for the upcoming provincial elections showed no province had more support for better roads than Overijssel. It has one of the worst connections between economic regions within the province. (Zwolle - Almelo, Zwolle - Deventer, Almelo - Hardenberg, Zwolle - Hardenberg all being slow 80 km/h connections and/or lacking capacity).

A1 Hilversum - Amersfoort

Construction began today on the widening of eastbound A1 from Bunschoten to the Hoevelaken motorway interchange (A1/A28). The motorway will be widened eastbound only from 2 to 3 lanes.

The widening is temporary, to match the upcoming widening of A1 from Hilversum to Bunschoten (2x4). Otherwise there would be a significant bottleneck at Bunschoten where eastbound traffic would funnel down from 4 to 2 lanes.

Eventually this segment of A1 will be widened in both directions, to 4 lanes each way. That project won't start until 2019 or so, and is part of the Hoevelaken motorway interchange reconstruction. The bridge across the railroad will be replaced with a wider bridge that is sufficient for a future layout of 4 lanes and a shoulder (so that they don't have to widen it twice).

The widening will be completed late 2015.

There are shoulder lanes on that section of A1. A widening along that stretch would be very expensive.

A6, Almere

An annotated photo of the A6 in Almere. The 'Hogering' exit will be reconstructed into a free-flow semi-turbine interchange, including a reversible lane. It is the first major Almere exit coming from Amsterdam and handles a lot of traffic. It is part of the SAA megaproject.
