@CborG

Are they constructing more lanes @ vaanplein? I still see overheads that dont have any connection with the highways yet.

That's because of the previous configuration of interchange Vaanplein. The A15 will be widened though.

The section 4x4 in Interchange Ridderkerk (that interchange spans over 3km) are actually 2 adjacent motorways; the A15 and A16.

It's something different than a double number on a motorway, here are physically 2 motorways next to eachother.

Well in Holland things are a little different. The four largest cities (Big-4) are about 50 km from eachother, in a turned square:

--------Amsterdam----
-----------------------
The Hague----Utrecht-
-----------------------
----Rotterdam---------

Something like that.

Some couple of years (sixties, seventies) after WWII, Dutch economy was booming. People who gained money were suburbanizing and moved to villages nearby the Big-4. Most of these villages were in the middle of the Big-4, which was semi-nature but mostly countryside. The Dutch government was afraid that this 'Green Heart' would be completely built full, and pointed 'growcores', villages outside the Big-4, that could grow into middle-size cities. The main idea was that the people would move and thus also the companies. The people moved to these growcores, however, the companies didn't. Simple cause-effect: huge traffic jams between the growcores and the Big-4.

I'm working on a masterplan myself, as a future urban planning student (my study starts next month) to build a S-bahn type of network in the whole Randstad to finally solve this problem.

I like this interchange a lot. For some reason riding on it is an amazing feeling - I can't quite describe this feeling.

Is there more interchanges like this in the NL?

You mean the wideness of the roads or the size of the junction?
There is another junction, Rottepolderplein, which actually concists of 3 separate junctions very close to each other. The A9, A205, A200 and N205 meet each other here.

http://maps.google.nl/maps?ll=52.376...&t=k&z=14&om=1

A junction with roads a wide as near Ridderkerk can be found near the Hague, between Ypenburg and Prins Clausplein:

http://maps.google.nl/maps?ll=52.050...&t=k&z=17&om=1

Also near schiphol, junction de Hoek:

I mean both the wideness of the road and the outline of the junction. The dutch sure have practical solutions. :P

Thanks for the links btw. That's some sexy stuff.

Interesting, for my profielwerkstuk I'm doing something a bit similar. I'll try to find out if connecting the different urbannetworks (Randstadrail etc.) will help against the traffic problem on the road.

Maybe you should mention in your PWS, there hasn't been much capacity adding since 1985, while population was growing by 2 million since then.

You mean the highways? Because I think I'll focus more on the PT and one of my points will be that a S-Bahn kind of network which also connect different bigger cities (no intercity) will contribute to PT use. But I hardly done anytinhg already I still have almost a year but thanks anyway.
