It's a village in the old peat bogs that were pretty much strip-mined in the 19th and early 20th century. Gasselte is the name of a proximate, much older village on the sands of Drenthe from where the 'colonization' of the peat areas took place. So the new settlement was called 'Gasselter (from/near Gasselte)-nijveensche (of the new peat)-mond (mouth)'. Other examples are Exloo - Exloërmond (either the eerste or tweede, first or second), Buinen, Buinerveen and Nieuw Buinen or Valthe and Valthermond. Check out the land subdivisions in this area: http://maps.google.nl/maps?hl=nl&ie=...,0.617981&z=11

To keep it on topic, the A37 motorway was only recently opened here and the N33 and N34 that run near this area were never completed as motorways. The eastern parts of Drenthe and Groningen got the shaft after infrastructure funds ran out in the seventies.

Don't worry you'll get there too. Give it a few more years for the EU to stop cutting you slack on environmental policy and you'll be squeezing through just as we are.

Legislation to widen roads is incredibly complicated mostly due to EU environmental rules. Those rules will soon enough fully apply to Poland as well.

And as Timon mentioned before, there is lack of good local roads for far distances...

People spoiled themselves with motorways

Wow, national traffic law enforcer Koos Spee quit. He's hated by many, since he got in office, the number of fines rose from 4 million per year in 1998 to a staggering 12 million in 2008. I don't think many people will regret he's gone.

thats quite cheap...

it will cost about 600euro in hungary...
(almost two months salary for a starter teacher)

EDIT: driving by 76km/h on a main road at a 30km/h construction site speedlimit will cost 1000 euro!
(about three months salary)

I think we should change the name of our country to FINESTONIA...

Okay that's enough cycling for the insane

Anyway, they've started an interesting trial on the A1 freeway near Amsterdam, it's called DYNAMAX, Dynamic Maximum speed limits. It means the speed limit can be increased to 120 km/h when traffic allows, and be lowered if it is busy. Hope it's gonna be good, it's irritating to drive 100 km/h on an empty rural freeway.

Chris, recently you mentioned that they were going to build a new bridge near Muiden on the A1, starting on the 23rd of January 2009. I haven't heard anything anymore ever since. Do you know anything abou this project, and if they will start on this date?

I heard the jacking up of the old bridge took more time than expected, but rumours says it's another reason. We'll just have to sit back and wait.

I just hope that we don't have to wait another 50 years, like with the A4 MD
