The tunnel is 1330 meters long and is located just south of the 6600 m long Westerschelde Tunnel. The next project is to widen N62 to a four-lane expressway to the Belgian border.

Interesting to see the bare tubings in a road tunnel.

CNN (!) has an item on the construction of the A2 land tunnel in the city of Maastricht. The item is from january this year so not very recent. Nevertheless I thought it is worth sharing:

Zierikzee Blues

Zierikzee has always been prominently located on the signage in southwestern Netherlands. With a population of only 10,000 and not being on a major junction of national roads, some feel it has been overrepresented.

Zierikzee has been removed from the signs on A15 near Rotterdam because the A4 was completed to Bergen op Zoom, so this city is now a control city. However, there was apparently a significant (?) public outcry, enough for them to add Zierikzee to the signs again.

The town is somewhat of a focal point, indicating more than just the city, but most of Zeeland province.

Sign indicating Zierikzee over 100 kilometers away on A59. This is signed according to the depreciated 'remote focal point' concept, that the end point of the road is used as a control city. Poland does this as well. As A59 serves almost no cities of significance directly, west of 's-Hertogenbosch, Zierikzee was the only viable option.

It's good to see that more and more "autowegen" being constructed. A "Gelbe AutoStrasse" network linking smaller cities or links is very usefull!

It's not minor cities, but above sparsely populated regions that receive better access through the upgrade N-routes. But if your comment was driven by the opening of the N261 intersection, you should be aware that there was originally an actual motorway between Tilburg and Waalwijk.

Well, it's well larger than Van Horn and Gravellona Toce
