Don't get too optimistic, EPA001. There are many other examples of this useless debating. Over here, in Abcoude, they have been debating ever since 1972 if there is going to be a third bridge crossing the Angstel (one of the rivers that pass this town)

For crying out loud.

The new N7 near Groningen turned out to be a disaster on it's first day. The three roundabouts at the exit that handle traffic from the 4 square kilometer industrial park cannot handle the commuting traffic, and the traffic jam was 9 kilometers this morning normally it's only 2 - 3km.

Maybe it was just roadgeeks from all over the country looking to finally take a ride on a NEW Dutch highway

Is there any map which shows this road? GE hasn't updated it yet

3.5 minutes is not bad, I was in The Hague a while ago and it took me 20 minutes to get to the Koningskade near the end of A12 because it was jammed - on a saturday!

I used to travel every day from Amsterdam to The Hague... I started working at 7 in the morning.. If i didnt do that i would have been wasting my time in a traffic jam. Before 7 it was still doable

Holterberg Scenic Drive

I decided to take the tourist road from Nijverdal to Holten. A drive of approximatly 10 kilometers through hilly and forested terrain and grades up to 10%, quite uncommon in this part of the Netherlands. Luckily, it was a monday morning, so the road was not crowded at all.

I just throwed in a figure, though it wouldn't surprise me. Although it seems a little high, I don't know official figures, but in 1975 we constructed a motorway in rural area for 2 million per km (inflation adjusted). I'm sure this one was at least 5 - 10 times more expensive per km, so a figure of 40 million for these 2 km wouldn't surprise me.

N35 Highway, Nijverdal - Zwolle

A drive across the N35 highway, a major route from Nijverdal to Zwolle. It had quiet traffic at 12.00 hrs.

N35, wasn't that a "dodenweg" (death road)? The road is a typical death road: looks narrow, trees close to the road, normally quite busy. At least it has this 'wide' median at some places.

These double solid lines create some kind of median by narrowing the existing lanes. Man I miss those 3,5 m wide lanes... Much more comfortable.

The A73 tunnels near Roermond closed for the 1000th time in a year today.

Party?
