Great overview!!

I think this is incorrect though:

Current status:
Diemen - Muiderberg: 2x4 + reversible lane

It was 2x3 + reversible lane. Now while the construction of another reversible lane are underway it's 2x4 without a reversible lane. And after the work on the reversible lane is finished it should be 2x3 or 2x4 + 2 reversible lanes, right?

You're right, it is 2x3 + 1 reversible now. Only the section across the Amsterdam-Rhine canal is 2x4.

The short-term solution is 2x3 + 2 reversible lanes.

I'm not done though, but it requires some work It's a boatload of projects

THAT is what I call "comprehensive coverage". If I get inspired I'll try to make some posts about Italian freeways too.

When you use 4X2 instead of 2X4 are you referring to 2+2+2+2 (local-express setup)?

Do these shoulder running projects have anything to do with the fact that newer cars rarely break down, thus rendering the initial purpose of shoulders somehow obsolete ("somehow", I mean)?

In Italy they made some studies and found out that, after privatization/PPP/concession of most of Italian freeways in 1997, within 10 years the number of occurrences where drivers parked in a shoulder dropped more than 70% as older cars were being "phased out". Then, it became more widespread accepted the construction of new freeways with narrower shoulders if necessary and - more important - the construction of 2X1 expressways with "parking islands" every 2km instead of shoulders became accepted.

All done! It's quite impressive, don't you think?

But we have 25 years of underinvestment and neglect to attend to, so it was about damn time.

Yes. Apparently, Rijkswaterstaat is quite keen on local-express motorways, even at just 8 lanes. I don't think it's really necessary unless you're going wider than 10 lanes or when there are more than 4 exits every 3 km.

What about the A58 near Breda and Eindhoven? I thought it would be widened too.

I guess Noord Brabant, Frîsland and Flevoland are the provinces that are going to see fewer projects

In terms of backyard projects (for me) I'd like to see the extension of the A261 to Waalwijk, the upgrade of A59 to full freeway standards near Drune and, most important of all, construction of A65 between Vught and Oisterwijk

Only the westbound lanes from IC Batadorp to Oirschot will get one extra lane. That's a minor projects, I didn't take those into account, just like the extra lane on A2 from IC Leenderheide to Valkenswaard and on A29 from IC Vaanplein to Oud-Beijerland.

There are currently no advanced plans for a widening near Breda (although I do think it's a good idea to widen A58 between Eindhoven and Breda).

Noord-Brabant already saw extensive road projects in the last 10 years;

* A2 IC Deil - IC Empel => 2x3
* A2 IC Empel - IC Vught => 4x2
* A2 IC Ekkersweijer - IC Leenderheide => 4x2 / 2+3+3+2
* A16 IC Klaverpolder - IC Galder => 2x3
* A50 construction Eindhoven - Oss

I agree about A65 though, it's a pain in the ass with all those traffic lights.

Fryslân has almost no problems, but they will construct a 2x2 N31 bypass around Leeuwarden. (not included because it isn't an A-road). Recently the N7 through Sneek has been rebuilt to 2x2 grade-separated and the N31 has been constructed as a 2x2 expressway from Leeuwarden to Drachten, as well as the section from IC Zurich to Harlingen.

What's needed in Fryslân is the reconstruction of the Joure roundabout, where A6 meets A7.

Flevoland also has limited traffic problems outside of the Almere area, but the A6 is included above. The N23 1x2 expressway is currently U/C from Lelystad to Dronten and later on towards Kampen.

He told me that what I did was illegal. I could have rented a car in London and drove it to France, but in no way was I allowed to purchase a British car and drive it to Europe.

I have no idea where else to post this question, so sorry if it's in the wrong area. Anyone know if I was truly in the wrong or does this guy not know what I he's talking about.

If I had been stopped by the police, say in France or The Netherlands, and presented my California license yet with proof that I owned the British car, what would they have possibly done? I am now living in the UK, and have a UK licence, so this wouldn't be an issue for me anymore, but I never gave it any thought until recently!

Thanks for info, I am curious as to whether I broke the law or not! :-) I'll post this question in the French or British motorways as well and see what people say.
I think he got that the wrong way around.

In 2006 I was involved in a car crash on the M25 around London. I was in my own car, a Dutch car (purchased and owned by me) and I was visiting the UK. My car was totaled and I tried to arrange alternative transportation to get back to Holland through my insurance company.

My contact at the insurance company tried to arrange a rental car for me by calling several companies, but she then told me this was a dead end because no rental company would allow me to take a British rental car (with the steering wheel on the right) to the continent. Something to do with insurance.

Since I didn't have the cash to buy a car, I opted for a plane ticket in the end.

I can't believe A6 between Almere and Lelystad won't be widened any time soon! It's such a pain to drive and there are often jams. And it should be very easy to widen as all the bridges are already prepared for more lanes, so it's just a matter of adding some more asphalt.

You need to know whether those jams are caused by further retentions southward. If that is the case, maybe widening is not needed right now.

A6 carries only 57,000 vehicles per day between Almere and Lelystad. Similar to A50 Apeldoorn - Zwolle or A28 Harderwijk - Zwolle.

I think A27 needs to be widened to 2x3 as well between IC Eemnes and Almere in order to cope with the growth of Almere. The section between Eemnes and Huizen is already nearing 80,000 vehicles per day.

Ah I thought it would be more! Maybe traffic there is worse in the weekends when I drive there often.

I think the whole A27 should be widened. In the central Netherlands the A27 and A15 are major bottlenecks.

Chris, in your post you talk about the widening of A6 from Muiderberg to Almere (S101). I always understood that the A6 would be widened until the north of Almere (S106). With 2x4 between Muiderberg and S101, and 4x2 between S101 and S106.

Some more minor projects in these 'low investment areas':
- Widening of N31 in Harlingen
- Upgrading of N50 between Kampen and Emmeloord

The N261 between the A59 and Loon op Zand will be completely grade seperated. Planned completion 2015.

Great overview, when do you sleep?

Is it really that hey widen the A27 on the eastern edge of Utrecht to 4+6???!!!! Incredible! 6 lanes all the way through or a collector/express layout? Has construction already started? You mentioned a completion in 2011 already?

The Netherlands is really going to get Europe's California or one big Atlanta

The 4+6 on the eastern side of Utrecht is 2x4 already. The 4 lanes each way are 2 through lanes and 2 weaving lanes between both interchanges (which are only 2 km apart). The northbound carriageway will be widened to six lanes using the existing ROW, they will convert the left and right shoulder to driving lanes, that's why it can be done quite fast.

Here's how it looks today. The right carriageway will be widened to six lanes; 3 through and 3 exit lanes.

Is there a map like http://www.roadsuk.com/documents/network_map_lanes.pdf for the Netherlands? It'll be interesting to see a now and a future one.
