[NL] Dutch Highways & Autosnelwegen

intro by ChrisZwolle.

Network map of the "rijkswegen" (national roads). Not all of these roads are actually motorways.

A28 Utrecht - Leusden-Zuid 2x2 -> 2x3 17.8km (widening)
A28 Leusden-Zuid - Hoevelaken 2 -> 3 lanes (left shoulder running)

New motorway construction

most of these projects are still pending, and have been for up to 50 years in some cases. If they will all be constructed within the next 10 - 20 years is doubtful.

A31 N31 Harlingen upgrade 2x2
A35 N35 expressway Wierden - Zwolle

All highways with number of lanes by color.

That's exactly the part that's NOT under construction, sadly enough... One might indeed ask when the Venlo community comes to its senses and decides to no longer oppose the construction of the A74 (which would become one of the shortest highways in Holland) - all the traffic going directly through the town at this moment can't be that much fun, either...

Most construction work on a single highway is to take place on the A2. There arre no less than six different parts of this highway that should receive an upgrade between now and 2020:

Between Amsterdam and Utrecht, the highway is widened to 2x5 lanes; more info to be found here

Between Utrecht and Deil junction, the highway should be widened to 2x3 lanes;

Around the city of Den Bosch, the highway should be re-constructed to 4x2 lanes; two junctions should be reconstructed as well:



Between Den Bosch and Eindhoven, the highway should be widened to 2x3, although a definite decision has yet to be taken;

Around Eindhoven, the highway should be reconstructed in a similar order like around Den Bosch. This is a project with a larger scope, though, since Eindhoven serves as an important junction for many highways (A2, A50, A58, A67 and A270). Four junctions should be reconstructed; more info can be found here

Finally, the A2 should go underground in the city of Maastricht, where the highway currently runs through as a city boulevard. No definite 'go ahead' has been given here, either.

Some pictures of highways A2 and A12:

A12 near Utrecht:



A2 between Amsterdam and Utrecht:



Annoying traffic jams!!



That's why this road gets 4 extra lanes, see Alargules reply, here's a new viaduct:



In 3 years this will look completely different:



Further south, Near my hometown the A2 is also widened from a narrow 2x2 to 2x3 with enough room for a 2x5 road:

Before:



After:



All pictures are selfmade

The latest asset that got added to the highways of The Netherlands: voting-poll booths! With the latest elections, voters in the Netherlands were in the position to leave their ballot paper at the gas station.

At least 2 lanes in each direction, divided by a median.
Interchanges - no grade crossings.
Hard shoulders/emergency lanes
Width is mostly 3,5 meters per lane, but varies near build-up areas to 3,20 meters.

Design speed is mostly 140 - 160 km/h or more, but not in interchanges, junctions, and near cities, but it is said to be at least 100km/h.

Maximum speed is outside urban areas mostly 120km/h, but 100km/h stretches become more regular. There are even 80km/h speed limits on six lane motorways, forced with camera's.

I wonder there are no Topographic maps on the side shown, they are the best for accurate road information, every four year the whole Netherlands updated!! See/look for: Topografische Dienst-Kadaster, Emmen, Nederland.
