Seems expensive but it's a neat idea.

Here in Eindhoven it hasn't been melting and there's new fallen yesterday. It's terrible traffic cause there hasn't been any snowshivers up here, just one big mess.

Over here it's just white because of the frost. It's beautiful, but it's f***ing cold.

By the way, it's almost time for a third thread about the Netherlands

Yeah, the third third thread, and the second serious third thread

Yesterday there were lots of problems with traffic around frozen lakes and canals, because everybody went out to skate. Today the police seems to handle the traffic better, because there isn't much trouble yet

Let's inaugurate this thread with some pics I just took today.

Sunday traffic on the A28 motorway between Meppel and Zwolle.

1. A28 Northbound looking at interchange Lankhorst with A32.
[IMG]http://i39.************/33b1q46.jpg[/IMG]

2. A28 Southbound looking at some haze near exit Staphorst.
[IMG]http://i39.************/1zg9ibo.jpg[/IMG]

3. A28 Southbound, traffic was very light today.
[IMG]http://i39.************/1exctl.jpg[/IMG]

4. A28 Northbound, moved to another overpass, looking at exit Staphorst.
[IMG]http://i41.************/331gmdt.jpg[/IMG]

5. Looking at the Staphorst viaduct.
[IMG]http://i41.************/ief2ts.jpg[/IMG]

6. A28 Southbound looking at Shell gas station "Dekkerland".
[IMG]http://i42.************/11hud0h.jpg[/IMG]

7. A28 Soutbound, moved to an overpass further south.
[IMG]http://i43.************/jgp277.jpg[/IMG]

8. Looking north at Shell gas station Dekkersland.
[IMG]http://i40.************/1zeib2o.jpg[/IMG]

9. Gas is still one of the most expensive in the developed world. € 1,26 is $ 6.4 per gallon at the moment.
[IMG]http://i39.************/qxl7cx.jpg[/IMG]

10. Another viaduct to the south. Looking at the exit signage for the rest area. This is northbound.
[IMG]http://i40.************/2i7seoi.jpg[/IMG]

11. Southbound signage for exit Nieuwleusen.
[IMG]http://i40.************/m98y89.jpg[/IMG]

12. Notice the 100m markers in green.
[IMG]http://i42.************/16jkbyp.jpg[/IMG]

13. Further south, at the overpass near exit Nieuwleusen. Notice the former watertower which is now a restaurant.
[IMG]http://i44.************/23ijbpi.jpg[/IMG]

14. Distance signage from another overpass.
[IMG]http://i44.************/2l90ev8.jpg[/IMG]

15. Looking south from the same overpass.
[IMG]http://i39.************/1zqpthk.jpg[/IMG]

16. This is the Hessenpoort industrial park of Zwolle. The Scania maintenance facility is shown.
[IMG]http://i39.************/t6w66a.jpg[/IMG]

17. Huge billboard, thank god not too widespread in the Netherlands.
[IMG]http://i40.************/algec3.jpg[/IMG]

18. Room in the median for a third lane, the A28 will be widened to six lanes in the next few years.

I know, my dad also went to overijssel for an ice-skate tour. He said about 10.000 people were skating the same tour.. Causes a lot of traffic.

Great pictures of a serious bottleneck, it is always fun to drive that stretch of the A28 and get stuck in a trafficjam. It would be great if this road would be changed into 2x3 lanes (or even more!).

Yeah, the Abcoudermeer is frozen as well and for the first time in 12 years it is possible to skate on the lake. I went yesterday morning with a friend and there were only 4 people (including us) skating. That was brilliant. I also went in the afternoon, however, and it was very busy again. Lots of parked cars as well. Luckily I can get there by bike
