That's actually what I meant. Windy road to Loenersloot. Nice A2 bypass.
I wonder what those drivers do next, take N402 to Utrecht?

Most drivers don't that want to avoid the A2 don't go to Loenersloot, they enter the A2 again at exit Abcoude. Traffic always slows down a bit just north of exit Abcoude, because the A2 and the A9 'merge' and that might cause some problems. That's why they want to avoid it. Two years ago they built a road block at the entrance of Abcoude to make drivers take the A2, causing huge problems. About 25 cars collided with that damn thing. After a while, some idiot blew the thing up with some heavy fireworks, and it hasn't been repaired yet. I hope they come up with another solution, because the road block did reduce congestion in Abcoude.

The A2 gets 2x6 lanes north of Abcoude and 2x5 lanes south of it. With such capacity, there's no need to sneak through the town anyway.

I hope it is the solution. Furthermore, they're going to build the "third bridge", which will lead through traffic around the city center to the A2, so that will help anyway. They can blow that damn road block in 2012 IMO

Remember that reconstruction of A2 is probably going to take another 50 years to be completed

Abcoude city centre ? I'd rather call it a village (not even a town).

Are all those sites on Aruba, or is it the Oranjestad on Sint Eustatius? Sweden used to have an island in the Carribbean, St Barts.

Sorry, I'm tired

You should be proud of your only island

Isn't the A38 a future motorway with a tunnel under the Maas river?

By the way, I am amazed how extremely bad the pavement of the A6/A1 Hollandse Brug-Amsterdam is. It is really horrible
