The crossing with traffic lights has been replaced by a new viaduct over this crossing. This means that the traffic flows so much safer, faster and smoother from and to the Harmsenbridge which connects the A15 with the N57. The viaduct was already opened on December 19th of last year.

Not all works are there completed yet but the trough traffic is profiting enormously from this new viaduct. Maybe this was already posted and I might have missed it, but it never hurts to post this "good news" again.

The worst part of the N342, at the ring road of the city of Denekamp (lovely town), is this bend. Isn't one smooth bend, you need to change direction every time in here. And the speed limit is also strange, why not 80km/h?
BTW, the Netherlands have to much different speed limits... Its really confusing sometimes.

A7-A8 Purmerend - Amsterdam

The final environmental impact statement has been published for the construction of new shoulder lanes along A7 and A8 between Purmerend and Amsterdam.

The northbound shoulder lane will be extended south onto A8, to allow easier access and better evening rush hour traffic flow.

A new southbound shoulder lane will be constructed from Purmerend-Zuid to Oostzaan, merging into the Coenplein motorway interchange. It will be continuous through the Zaandam motorway interchange.



This is a temporary solution to alleviate traffic congestion and utilize the new Coen Tunnel capacity better during the morning rush hour. The A7 used to be one of the most notorious bottlenecks in the country, and is usually the first traffic jam to appear around 6 a.m.

The final plan is to widen A8 to 12 lanes and A7 to 8 lanes and reconstruct the Zaandam cloverleaf by making Amsterdam - Purmerend the through direction.

A44, Leiden

The Old Rhine Bridge in Leiden. It carries A44. It was built in 1966. It will be replaced by an eight lane bridge as part of the 'Rijnlandroute' project.

It will be an a-symmetrical widening. They build a new bridge on the west side, then demolish the existing bridge and build a second span at that location. So the axis of A44 will shift to the west.

That is unavoidable. But this widening is also really necessary to handle all the traffic here.

Well if it's an overpass like that massive thing over a beautiful valley in Southern France, I would consider it. But as a rule of thumb, I'm gonna go with "no".

Hardly, I travel more on on two wheelers these days than four wheelers, due to having to be in the city center nearly daily and refusing to pay for parking.

Plus chrome rims ? I like driving cars, not wasting cash unnecessarily on them, what type do you think I am, if I'd have to spend on my car it'd be on a turbo or larger intake manifold instead of rims ( but nah, I don't spend any money on cars except to keep em driving, better save the cash for something better than thinking you can do a better job than the manufacturer) .

re: Those houses, I wouldn't mind living under a motorway, partly, however not entirely, but more so because of the lack of light.

The area under the motorway would make for a nice ''garage area'' though for all the cars .

Plus I don't hate biking, I hate low travel speeds, a racing bike is fine , ideally one that also helps me with an electric motor .

Only 2 months and one more week and I can finally get licence A, ( none of that A1/A2 rubbish), can't wait to have a motorbike, not be hassled with traffic jams or parking, but able to go on motorways .
