Road works on A1

The A1 between Hengelo and the German border is being reconstructed. The current concrete plates will be replaced by ZOAB, and the road will be widened by approx 1 meter on each side. Currently, they are working between intersection Buren (A1/A35) and Hengelo Noord. The photo is taken heading towards Germany. At the moment the two lanes heading east are divided by the central crash barrier. Make sure to pick the right lane if you have to get off at Hengelo, Hengelo Noord or gas station Lonnekermeer.

BREAKING NEWS

All objections against the construction of the A5 Westrandweg near Amsterdam have been overruled by the council of state, effectively meaning the construction gets a green light. Further appeal is not possible at this point.

The second Coentunnel has also been given the green light a few months ago, meaning traffic situation will significantly improve when this project is finished.

A5 will relieve the A10-west, and the second Coen Tunnel will relieve the existing Coen Tunnel (2x2, no shoulders, 120.000 AADT)

Hey not bad! Not as good (for me) as the A4 Midden Delftland would be, but I'll take it

It will be right next to the existing Coen Tunnel, and will carry the A10. (Amsterdam beltway).

The problem in this area is the limited amount of connections across the North sea canal, together with most housing being developed north of it, and jobs remain south of it.

2×5 on the A2, near Maarssen. This seems to be the first spot where both directions are ready for 2×5. Pic was taken about a week ago.

Unfortunately the 2×5 becomes 2×3 very quickly afterwards, so I couldn't wait for the wipers to dry the window

Even though where in a metropolitan area as the randstad, i am always surprised by the fact how green holland is.

If you look at other countrys you often see no green at all, and look at this picture, looking over a very busy area of rotterdam, and you see all this..

Not everything is bad in holland

Although I do agree that a single tree shouldn't be able to stop a motorway being build, which somethimes seems to be the case here

Our residential neighborhoods suck though... usually a rowhouse, a paved front yard (very small often), a paved sidewalk, paved street, another paved sidewalk, another paved front yard, en then another row of rowhouses... not much green, and if there is, it's a useless piece of grass that's used as a parking lot because there aren't enough parking spaces.

I gotta say I like the American residential neighborhoods better... big front lawns, trees, etc that all look part of the neighborhood. Dutch lawns are always secluded on the back side of the house. Also, Dutch homes lack private garages, or a driveway to park your car near your house, so every street is filled with cars everywhere you look... very ugly.

It's basically this....
