Stunning motorway really. 10 lanes, double shoulder, huge median. One of the most massive future roads in Europe.

How is the intersection problem going to be solved. Reconstruction of all junctions? It would be somewhat difficult to accomodate 4 more lanes to the existing ones.


And btw, is Den Bosch and Hertogenbosch the same city?

Yes they are. Some cities have an alternative spelling. You will see 's-Hertogenbosch on the signs, while people say Den Bosch.

Other examples;

Gorinchem - Gorkum
Den Haag - 's-Gravenhage
Amsterdam - Mokum (although that's more like slang).

Really nice ramp viaduct, though I wish it didn't have those thickened portions at the bents.

2x5 lanes for N201? That's some kind of local road right?

I meant the N201 exit.

Would be kind of crazy to have the N201 ten lanes... although 4 lanes would probably be needed.

Ah, twin cities. Many cities and towns in Poland have those singpost with directions and distances to all of their twin cities too.

Abcoude is a twin city with Lennik, Belgium. I read it on Wikipedia, so I'm not sure if it's true, and I've never seen signs about it over here.

Do you guys use the old font and arrows again on the new motorway signs in stead of the font introdused a couple of years ago (together with open arrows)?

Rijkswegen = Tebodin design (old school)
Other roads = ANWB redesign (ugly new one)

So motorways will keep the old font thank god.

A one day parking ticket for several parking garages in Amsterdam will now set you back € 60

Some places already charged you with €3,50 per half hour. When you go to Amsterdam the best thing you can do is park your car near a trainstation near Amsterdam (parking is mostly free) and take the train into the city.

The best possibility is to park your car at the Area stadium, which will cost you 5,50 Euro's /24 Hr, including 2 returntickets to the centre by subway.

And it is even quicker than entering the city by car.

Lesson in Dutch maniacs; how do I turn a simple crossing into a major traffic-light-speed-camera intersection?

Yeah. A good example of wasting tax money.
