A truck went through the median at the interchange of A20 and A16 in Rotterdam. The whole region is gridlocked now.

Okay, I made a bigger trip today. I'm not able to do that often because I'm broke, but I went with a friend of mine. He took pics and drove, and I made videos.

A28 Zwolle - Groningen

Let's start with the A28 motorway, a major (third longest) motorway from Utrecht to Groningen. This serie covers the northern 100 kilometer of it, from the city of Zwolle to Groningen. Along the motorway, there are roadworks near Meppel, the rebuilding and completion of interchange Lankhorst, adding new connectors that weren't there before. (Meppel - Hoogeveen vv)

N7 Expressway, Groningen

This is the N7, one of the few expressways existing in the Netherlands. Except for intersection Julianaplein, this road is recently upgraded to an expressway with limited access along the eastern side of Groningen. The 2x2 lanes however, are often congested due to Groningen being a city of 180,000 and is a major jobcenter for Northeastern Netherlands.

A31/N31 Drachten - Leeuwarden - Harlingen - Zurich

This journey goes via the N31/A31 highway, which is partially a motorway, partially a limited access expressway, and partially an at-grade, one-lane road. The N31 part from Drachten to Leeuwarden has recently been upgraded to 2x2 lanes with controlled access, and the bypass of Leeuwarden has yet to be build. The A31 runs from Leeuwarden to Harlingen and is an existing 2x2 motorway. The route through the Harlingen town is a one lane highway, and the next part until interchange Zurich is a recently opened 2x2 expressway.

Nice pics, Chris! By the way, another proof that we Dutch have to look for better names for our rest areas. "Dikke Linde" along the A7 is quite weird. It means "fat tilia", but "Linde" is also a girls' name in Dutch

-edit- This could have been in Estonia

@Robosteve: I didn't know they used the Kelvin scale in Australia

@RipleyLV: It looks like this sign is just new, and they made fun with it already

They don't. I just prefer it to Celsius because its zero point is not arbitrary.

This sign is 33 years old, placed when the motorway was opened on March 1st, 1976. You can see it because the N48 shield is very much faded, nearly white instead of yellow.

Really? It has the concept of a new sign.

That's true, it was one of the oddities on our motorway network. They added similar signs to interchange Holsloot (A37/N34) before they start rolling out the new signage recently.

I see. I never come in that area so I didn't know this. That's why I thought it was a new sign

Can you believe that the busiest Dutch motorway (AADT: 250,000) actually has a drawbridge?

It's very stupid . They need to built a new bridge next to it, make it higher so that boats can pass easily.
