You are right, i don't think it will take long before the traffic will be diverted over the new viaduct there.

Next friday is the day after Queens day, so traffic is probably low... Maybe a good time to switch lanes.

1 May it's a German holiday 'Tag der Deutsche Einheit'. So I think the Germans are comming.

At least the borderregions in the Netherlands will be overwehlmed by German visitors. The shops are open till 21h on fridays, because most cities has switch their thursday 'koopavond' to friday, because of Queensday.

Greetings.

As promised, an update of the works of the widening of the A2.

Please don’t mind the dirty windshield – weather is not very good today. I wasn’t very happy with the pics of the first part anyway. The second part is better IMO

Minister of Transport Camiel Eurlings announced today that all gas stations next to a motorway should have a sign showing the current gas prices. As we speak 150 gas stations in the Netherlands don't have such a sign yet.

Small correction, 150 gas stations along "rijkswegen" don't have such a sign. (one and two digit road numbers). There are way more gas stations along other roads that don't have such signs.

Check the video (Dutch). It took that guy from 9 am to 11 am to complete like 15 kilometers in the city of Utrecht.

Dutch motorists and tourist association ANWB has published a new report about traffic jam development this month. April 2009 was the first time since november 2008 that saw an increase of traffic congestion compared to a year before. The influence of the economic recession on traffic congestion (along with other factors) seems to have halted somewhat. Morning rushhours were still a bit less busy at -18%, but traffic congestion increased +30% during the day.

I think the A2 Utrecht - Amsterdam will reach 200.000 + in a while, because of the excessive housing developments around Utrecht. Good thing they're ten-laning it.

54 pics isn't that much. Numerous pages in other threads (Poland, Albania, Hungary, to name a few) have many more pics

We're going to the next page now anyway
