Nice pics, Chris! It's quite close from where I live now Quite weird that they sign Twente Airport Enschede, since it was closed a few years ago and it's only used for gliding.

Those bumps are to warn you that a lane closure is ahead. I don't know anything about how they are attached though.

It says Rijkswaterstaat, the organization that maintains most infrastructure. The old signs said ANWB, the Dutch motorist organization.

Not exactly mild, they are the last resort to divert vehicles to the other lane who don't pay attention to all the signs.

Nice pictures Chris. Every weekend I drive from Groningen to Eindhoven and back. For Dutch conditions is a long drive :d During peak hours it's take me almost 4 hours But on off peak - 2,5h Of course if I can driver 110 km/h on narrow left lane in Zwolle
I can see more new signs on motorways mostly on A28. I prefer the old style. New style IMO is too German...

The Dutch province of North-Holland is looking into finishing the missing link between the A8 and A9 motorways between Zaanstad and Heemskerk. It could be finished as early as 2017. It would be a big relieve for the B-roads in the area and create a more robust motorway network in the north part of the Randstad.

Ah, the A8. I only went from Amsterdam to Uitgeest once using the A8 and the N-roads when the A8 stops after Zaanstad. An extention of the A8 would be a great idea, although most N-roads (N246 and N203, but these roads also have the name N8) are 2×2. They do have traffic lights though, slowing down traffic significantly. Since I've only been there on a quiet sunday, I don't know how bad traffic is between Uitgeest and Zaanstad.

It's a significant missing link in the Amsterdam area. The next east-west motorway is the A9 south of Amsterdam, and there isn't an east-west motorway north of it, despite Noord-Holland is still some 60 km along A7 north.

However, I doubt if the current plans will actually extend the A8 towards Heemskerk, even though Rijkswaterstaat is in possession of the alignment since the 1960's. I'm afraid they will come up with some substandard upgrade of the current N-roads. It's too hard to do it good at once unfortunately.

They are building a new Ringvaart aqueduct near Roelofarendsveen, as well as the narrow Leiderdorp section. As far as I know, they intend to bring the entire Amsterdam - Delft section to 2x3 minimal.

if am correct they already placed a extra slab of pavement on the stretch from Leiden towards Burgerveen so a shift of lanes is possible then, last couple of weekends that part of the A4 whas closed due roadworks, after that lanes where shifted . so its possible for shure

Last Tuesday, I made a little roadtrip in the beautiful (empty) southwestern part of the Netherlands, the provinces of Zeeland (empty but a lot of water) and the southern part of Zuid-Holland.

Enjoy!

Nice, a lot of water indeed. Are there more wind turbines in the Netherlands or Germany? (taking into account their different sizes)
