In Sweden, there is an agreement between the gas companies that prices should be signposted so that driver's can see prices without having to stop. This is not government regulated. But the backside is you can't always see the prices from the motorway. In fact, the possibility to do so is rare.

Am I stoned or is this really suitable for a future 2×2?

Not with shoulders. But maybe if they reconstruct some retaining walls of the viaducts. In my opinion, the whole N34 should've been a 4-lane divided highway for decades. It's a killer road!

I don't know why we are not able to double roads to 4 lanes and divided (even without access control), nearly all provincial roads in central Netherlands have traffic volumes high enough to justify it.

A10 Ring Amsterdam

Click on the title to view the full set

The A10 is the ringroad, or beltway, of the Dutch capital: Amsterdam. This set covers all of it, in a clockwise direction from interchange Watergraafsmeer on the east side of Amsterdam.

route:
[IMG]http://i40.************/ekge39.png[/IMG]

1. Entering A10 from A1, an exit follows immediatly.
image hosted on flickr


2. Exit Diemen.
image hosted on flickr


3. Exit Duivendrecht.
image hosted on flickr


4. Exit Amstel Business Park.
image hosted on flickr


5. The A10 is six-laned mostly.
image hosted on flickr


6. Interchange Amstel ahead, with A2.
image hosted on flickr


7. Skyline of Amsterdam.
image hosted on flickr


8. Exit RAI. Note the pics are taken on a holiday, so light traffic.
image hosted on flickr


9. Highrises.
image hosted on flickr


10. Exit Oud Zuid (Old South)
image hosted on flickr


11. Skyline of Amsterdam-South.
image hosted on flickr


12. Exit Oud Zuid.
image hosted on flickr


13. railway station in the center of the freeway. Wide setup here.
image hosted on flickr


14. "Give emergency vehicles space" www.vananaarbeter.nl
image hosted on flickr


15. Interchange De Nieuwe Meer (A4)
image hosted on flickr


16. Lots of exits ahead. This is the north end of A4.
image hosted on flickr


17. This is a major interchange, and jammed every day.
image hosted on flickr


18. Exit Sloten.
image hosted on flickr


19. Entering the slowpoke zone.
image hosted on flickr


20. The speed limit is strictly enforced here by section control. Your average speed is measured here between two points, but rumour has it that there are also point in between where your speed is measured. A real money-maker.
image hosted on flickr


21. Exit Osdorp.
image hosted on flickr


22. Moving to the left lane. The right lane is filled with people doing 70 km/h.
image hosted on flickr


23. Another highrise.
image hosted on flickr


24. Commieblocks ahead.
image hosted on flickr


25. Exit Geuzenveld.
image hosted on flickr


26. New construction around here.
image hosted on flickr


27. Buildings on top of the freeway.
image hosted on flickr


28. Exit Bos en Lommer.
image hosted on flickr


29. Also the exit for the city of Haarlem.
image hosted on flickr


30. Exit Westpoort. Freeway narrows to 2x2 lanes.
image hosted on flickr


31. Also the exit for IJmuiden.
image hosted on flickr


32. Industries ahead.
image hosted on flickr


33. Another Westpoort exit.
image hosted on flickr


34. Interchange Coenplein (A8) ahead, but first...
image hosted on flickr


35. The Coentunnel! This 2x2 freeway carries 120,000 vehicles per day, more per hour than is theoretically possible.
image hosted on flickr


36. Narrow and no shoulders. A second tunnel is in preparation.
image hosted on flickr


37. Blurry.
image hosted on flickr


38. You have to exit to follow A10.
image hosted on flickr


39. Exit Oostzanerwerf.
image hosted on flickr


40. Taper.
image hosted on flickr


41. Entering a less claustrophobic part of the A10.
image hosted on flickr


42. Exit Kadoelen.
image hosted on flickr


43. Closed due to police activity.
image hosted on flickr


44. Police eatin' a donut on the shoulder.
image hosted on flickr


45. Exit Amsterdam-Noord. Major exit.
image hosted on flickr


46. Speed limit of 100 feels awfully slow here.
image hosted on flickr


47. Exit Durgerdam.
image hosted on flickr


48.
image hosted on flickr


49. Speed camera. I once got ticketed here for doing 107 km/h. Imagine the crime!
image hosted on flickr


50. Exit Zeeburg.
image hosted on flickr


51. Zeeburger tunnel. This one's a bit better with 2x3 lanes, but also operated near capacity. That's why a northern connection from Almere to Amsterdam is undesired at the moment.
image hosted on flickr


52. Interchange Watergraafsmeer (A1). Back where we began.
image hosted on flickr


53. But I'm gonna do another round! (just kidding)
image hosted on flickr


54. Traffic conditions! Filevrij! I love that word.
image hosted on flickr


55. A1 starts here.
image hosted on flickr


56. Taper.
image hosted on flickr


57. And exit Diemen again!
image hosted on flickr


58. Plus the Watergraafsmeer Railyard.

Nice photos!
That N202 (Northwest) should really be a motorway, shouldn't it?

A8 is better I guess. But they fail to bridge that damn 5 km gap for 30 years now.

Still most of the current route from Zaandam towards the A9 is 2×2, but there are some traffic lights, so extending the A8 would be better.

1961 Tracébesluit Coentunnelweg; inclusief Westzaan - Heemskerk
That was 48 years ago. I never understand why those "Tracébesluiten" weren't carried out. A "tracébesluit" means the construction has legally been secured, and construction usually commences within a year.

Thanks for the pics! In pic 57 you can see part of the new speed camera they placed there about a year ago. First time I passed there I wasn't aware of it and saw it last moment and believe I left two skid marks on the road from slamming on the brake hard enough to slow down to 100 km/h, dangerous things those speed cameras.
