whats even worse is that a large number of idiot drivers refuse to use the extra rush hour lanes. So I completely understand that building more lanes has no value.

and yes I am frustrated

Even if only the trucks use the shoulders, that's a big improvement for traffic flow.

AFAIK it's prohibited for trucks to overtake during rush hours.

It depends if a local passing ban is in effect. It's not like passing is automatically banned for trucks during rush hour.

Construction of the Prins Clausplein stack interchange:


Considering the cars, this was somewhere in the 80's.

It looks really

The A10 east is closed this weekend, between interchange Watergraafsmeer and Amstel (the other side is open). It was also like this a few weeks ago, I wonder what they are doing and how many more weekends it will be closed.

The last concrete stretch of motorway in the Netherlands. They're repaving parts of it at the moment.

Yes, the section between Interchange Buren and Hengelo-Noord has been repaved. The section between Hengelo-Noord and the German border is still concrete. The section from the Dutch border to Kreuz Schüttorf is even worse concrete.

The whole section will be repaved. It should be finished by October 2010.
The complete calendar can be found at http://www.rijkswaterstaat.nl/wegen/...rens/planning/

Chris: what is the point of the peak lane in this video? Why would they be closing it on a regular basis?

No, these peak hour lanes (also: shoulder running) are allowed because they are meant to relieve peak hours only. However, since peak hours are now almost all day long, they are also open during most of the day on some motorways.

This one had a problem because they weren't allowed to open it before 7 am because of noise. (the Dutch noise hours are 7 - 19, 19 - 23 and 23 - 7, so open it before 7 make it fall in a different noise hour, with a higher noise level (+10 dB)). So traffic jams popped up around 6.15 am, and traffic began moving again at 7 am because then they could finally open the left shoulder to traffic. Completely nuts

stay left, yeah just stay left. Ok im staying left, no need to use the free space on the right. Yeah left is comfy, im staying here. Left is better. Im afraid of the right lane. Left is easier, just hanging there. My love for the left lane is like a 80 year marriage. Love the left lane. Really good lane, left lane is the best.

The police was doing speed checks along the A27. It resulted in a longer-than-usual 20 km traffic jam which is still not dissipated at the moment (11.30 am)

Why don't they stop such stupid things if severe congestion occurs

Chris, do you have photos or videos of the Afsluitdijk and Houtribdijk? These and the urban motorways (A16?) are the most interesting roads in the Netherlands.

I have only found these:

So they build a whole new lane and then close it just because of slightly higher noise levels? Insanity! Wouldn't noise barriers make more sense?
