The A38 at Ridderkerk interchange. The number does not appear on signs (except rarely on temporary yellow signs, like on Chris' photo), and on the little signposts. And of course on my site

Like 16 lanes. (A16 Ridderkerk).
Most number of adjacent through lanes are on the A4 near Schiphol, 2x5. The currently under reconstruction A2 will be widened to 2x5 between Amsterdam and Utrecht, with a small section of 2x6 lanes between Abcoude and interchange Holendrecht (A9).

Nice pics, Chris. I like the fact that the widest adjacent motorway in the Netherlands will be near Abcoude

By the way, they are progressing way faster then expected. First it was expected to be finished in the beginning of 2012, now they moved the date to the end of 2010

No, it won't be the widest. The A16 in Ridderkerk interchange is the widest: 4+3+3+4.
Also in a few years the A4 between Den Ruygen Hoek service area and De Hoek junction will be 2+5+5+2, sliplanes excluded...

1. Rotterdam-North:


Album.

2. Rotterdam-South:


Album.

Anybody know what the new A50 bridge over the Waal is going to look like? An identical bridge next to the current one? I read in the paper today it's planned to open in 2014 as part of the expansion of the A50 between Arnhem and Nijmegen.

I don't think you can compare a rural area with polders to the vast urban environment of Detroit

Well, it's not really in the middle of nowhere, approximatly 2 - 3 million people live within 25 kilometers of it, one of the worlds largest airports is served by A4, and it's the only connection between Amsterdam and The Hague/Rotterdam. And last but not least, there are no real alternatives to this freeway.

From Palance's pics:

This sign is just digusting, flimsy arrows and an unreadable font. This "redesign" in Dutch signage is really a leap backwards compared to what we had...


gee!

The subway sign reminds me of McDonalds


WTF is the local tourist office doing on overhead signage?!


I can imagine someone gets tricked by these signs, the shape of them makes it look like the destinations are left, but they are in fact through.


Nice tunnels, I hope more Dutch cities will build them to ease traffic and reduce pollution from idling cars.


Oh this is nice, it's new isn't it?


Oh man.. this is so wrong. Motorroads should have solid side markings...


I wonder how much people will stick to the 70-limit on such roads... From my experience in Zwolle, they usually drive 90 or 100 on such 2x2 roads.


GATSO, NL's # 1 export product


Remember my earlier comment about these signs. This is old skool, much better than that new-fangled junk.


Any reason why there are temporary signs here? It looks pretty permanent.


Well, that was the first batch

AFAIK the only 2×2 road without level crossings where people stick to the speed limit of 70 km/h is the Gooiseweg in Amsterdam, which is in such a bad state that driving faster is a very bad idea
