I didn't see a single police vehicle on the Dutch motorways. How is it enforced? Mobile cameras? Police patrols?

That wonderful quote by King William I ('Geen land ter wereld is rijk genoeg om zich de weelde van slechte wegen te kunnen veroorloven') might be better translated like this:

"No country on earth is rich enough to afford the luxury of poor roads."

Just a suggestion

Just a question: Why there is no A3 autosnelweg?

I wrote an article in the Dutch Wegenwiki.

After more than 50 years of debating today finally the dicision has been taken: the A4 between Delft and Rotterdam will be constructed. It is expected to be opened by 2015.

Seems that the lame duck session of the current coalition has been quite productive in terms of road projects.

(Too bad it will feature only 2 lanes northbound...)

Now waiting until the decision becomes irrevocable. Which is expected to be early summer 2011.

Probably to prevent rückstau on A20. A4 has buffer space all the way around Delft.

What's the prognosis on the two other major gaps in the A4 to the south?

The southernmost section near Steenbergen will be constructed shortly, completion in early 2013 or so. However, there are no prodecures running for the section south of Rotterdam. The option right now is to widen A15 to 2x5 lanes and A29 to 3+4 lanes. However, the existing Heinenoord Tunnel in the A29 motorway cannot be widened (it has 4+3 lanes).

What will the number of the southern section be? A4 or A29?

Can't they build a second tunnel like near the Cohen Tunnel?

Completing the A4 seems me to be better.

ROFL: Cohen Tunnel. Job Cohen (labor party) wishes a tunnel would be named after him. It's actually the Coen Tunnel.

He's nuts... Maybe they can name a tea room after him that would be more like him...
