Dont under estimate the cost of building roads on ground which cannot even support the weight of the roads itself.

Beside that about 25% of the surface of the Netherlands is purely water.

I am aware, hence the lack of underground subways in cities like The Hague. Unaffordable.

In The Hague this is mostly no problem as most parts of the city are build on dunes (thus sand which is a relatively steady underground). The problems with the tramtunnel had causes. Amsterdam and Rotterdam on the other hand have been build on peat with all the problems that come from that. But in general the underground is the Netherlands is horrible to build on.

I was always taught Schevening was built on dunes, but downtown the Hague (achter de duinen - where the tram tunnel is) was built on peat. This map seems to confirm that:

The poorer regions build in the 19th centrury such as the Schilderwijk etc were build on peat. But the old city is build on sand. The larger North-South streets were build over the dunetops as those were the highest grounds. Basicly everything west of the Amsterdam-Rotterdam railway is peat although some parts west of it also are build on peat. The map you show is correct but the scare is too large to properly show the extent where the sand ends.

Oops I read about it in the newspaper today. The jam was not that long though. Only 13 kms.

Well yeah, they sealed the motorway off entirely shortly after, didn't they? So any jam was never gonna grow into a giant monster.

The same cannot be said for local highways and other motorways in the region I suspect.

Yes, all traffic was diverted via A30-A12-A50 (or the other way round). Traffic jams were 16 km in both directions.

Nice I know this route pretty good (although it's 100 km from my home), because my ex-girlfriend used to live in a village northwest of Groningen-City.

N35 just outside Zwolle... This two-lane undivided highway carries 25,000 AADT, and has traffic lights and at-grade intersections.

These pics were taken around 1.30 - 2 pm.

You definitely should ban overtaking there. And post a 70 km/h limit

Dokkum will be connected with Drachten soon, there will be a highway (how to call it?) from Dokkum to Drachten. Can't wait!

My mother goes to Drachten every week, from Dokkum to Drachten is 35/45 minutes, with that highway it will be 16/17 minutes. Very busy road, especially with rush hour.

You mean that the N356 will be an "autoweg" (expy) soon?
