A new project in Amsterdam that will start in the near future, the A5 Westrandweg (western beltway) this new motorway will allow traffic to avoid the very busy A10 and A4.
It includes a 6 to 15 meter high and 2-3km long viaduct, the longest in NL. Also the Coentunnel under the Northsea canal will be doubled.









New Coentunnel, on the left the old one:

The crashbarriers of the new stretch are great, almost as shiny as the new Struma motorway crashbarriers which are extremly shiny.

The Netherlands looks a lot like flat, Northwest Ohio, except with bicyclists.

Plans to diverse the A9 around Badhoevedorp (Amsterdam) Today it runs straight through the suburb on a very narrow 2x2 viaduct with little to no room for expansion.



old situation:



The plan is to go around the build-up area on the southside, there are 2 possiblities:





This new stretch will have at least 2x3 lanes and includes a total metamorphose of the Badhoevedorpjunction, the oldest cloverleafjunction in NL.

Plans to connect the German A61 with the dutch Motorwaynetwork are very old, there are several variants but the southern one is the most likely. It will be named A74 and will some 3km long.



Due to strict air quality regulations in NL the max speed can only be 80km/h

Map with the 2 variants, the A73 shown is now U/C:

May I just ask why the eastern section is called "Klagenfurt-variant", after the capital of the Austrian Carinthia? Or it's some other Klagenfurt?

Yes and no, It's named that way because the current road there is called Klagenfurtlaan, so it's easy for local people to know what variant the planners mean. The variant is named after the road and the current road is named after Klagenfurt. So indirectly you're right

^ I see, thanks. I was just wondering how many Dutch know where Klagenfurt is.

Interesting project. By the way, there is something on the Google aerial images of the area, right by the A-2/A-73 junction, that is heavily fuzzed, it looks like little more than a farm field.

Just curious.

@mgk920: Those blurry parts can be seen troughout the country, mostly they are covering millitary installations or gouvernment buildings, and some can't be explained. Like this one, I have no idea what's underneath it..

@mgk920

I'm guessing NATO pipeline network, just a hunch though.

I made a map with the future A2 with number of lanes, if im correct:



This is how the A2 near my hometown, Culemborg, will look like when the widening is completed:

It's certainly not for a railway. There are plans to add a 6th lane after 2015-2020 but that's not sure. I think it's kind of a widening 'de luxe' But i'm not sure of that.

[edit] I just asked the same quastion on the dutch highway forum, and they say it's better, construction wise, to have 2 smaller roadbeds instead of one broad one.

How will it be around Hertogen Bosh? It's not very clear in the picture.

Is it 2+3+3+2, like in Ultrecht, 2+2+2+2 or is it just 2+2(very unlikely, as that would be a major bottleneck)?

Ok!

The A-2 will turn into one of the motorways with the most capacity in Europe!


When are all the works planned to be finished? (Have they already started them all?)
