You gotta love the A2 lately. Almost daily a 40 - 50 km queue...

A1 motorway, east of Deventer, OV traffic jam. Photos taken around 11.30 am and the traffic jam was 13 kilometers long.

why they won't widen it to 2x3, as i can see it is enough place in the middle so it should be quite easy and cheap?!

Luckily the widening of the A2 is ahead of schedule

I heard about the A1 jam on the radio. They said some accident had happened on the IJssel bridge.

Are big trucks allowed to stop on the overtaking lane if there is a traffic jam?

So when hard shoulders are open for traffic, the speed limit is 80 km/h on all lanes?

Yes. It's not respected at all though. The left and center lane do not flow slower than 110.

When it was opened for one of the first times, it confused most drivers and everyone stayed on the two main lanes doing 120. Then one car started driving on the shoulder, and the rest followed him.

For Chris: als er één schaap over de dam is, volgen er meer (Dutch expression - when one sheep crossed the dam, the rest will follow)

It's basically a truck lane, you don't see many cars there.

That's quite logic. On this "Warschauer Allee" the trucks usually fill up most of the rightmost lane, whatever lane that may be (shoulder or a normal lane)

80 km/h speed limit is too low for such conditions. When hard shoulder is used it is basically a normal motorway without hard shoulder.

Wow, cool building! It looks like a big high-speed train, or like a big cash register.

Easter is over, and everybody's heading back for work; 1085 kilometers of traffic jam.

It always seems to be Rotterdam suffering the worst jams in those maps you post ChrisZwolle. Is there a reason for that? Or am I just remembering things incorrectly...?
