I think Dutch highways are really superb. They're well built and they look nice. I also love the bike and pedestrian designated streets that run parallel to the highway.......De baan goed gedaane mensen!! (I'm sorry if I didnt write that correctly)

That's quite funny. I think you mean something like 'you did your job well!' 'De baan' however also means something like 'the lane'.

Some nice videos on the previous page, Chris. I especially like the A10 in Amsterdam and the 10-lane A4; feels like in the US, but better pavement. And interesting zebras.

thanks

Another extremely busy rushhour, in the last 2 days, we had 3 rushhours with over 450km of queue. This evening topped out at 100 traffic jams and totalling 460km. There are no special reasons for this, the weather was okay, and only a few major accidents. (25km jammed on the A50 Arnhem - Eindhoven).

Number of traffic jams:


Total queue length:

A50 near Arnhem is the place, where two years ago i lost two hours because of stop&go drive. And i can't tell why. All cars suddenly disappeard between two small exits (not interchanges with other motorways). I don't understand it.

Hahahaha....I knew that I probably wrote it wrong. Thanks for the correction. I was trying to say 'good job people.'

Two hours? That's extremely much. However, I think you mean exit Schaarsbergen/Árnhem-Noord. A lot of people exit there to enter the city.

No, that's not Schaarsbergen. I was moving in the opposite direction from Apeldoorn to 'S-Hertogenbosch. Jam started at Knoppunt Watenberg (now i see it is next to Schaarsbergen) and finished at, as i think, Ravenstein. And it all happened on thursday at 8-10 PM.

As i see, A50 between Kn. Valburg and Kn. Ewijk is the only way to cross Waal river (and then Maas river) passing by Arnhem and Nijmegen. And it's only 2 lanes wide... Next Waal bridges are 20 km away (N323) and 10 km away (A325 ending in the center of Nijmegen). Great conditions to jam. This jam was longer than to Kn. Ewijk, I remember we crossed Mass with the speed 15km/h. How i hated Netherlands in this moment...

I traveled from Szczecin to Brussels and having 3 different routes (Hannover-Dortmund-Koln-Aachen-Brussel; Hannover-Dortmund-Venlo-Antwerpen-Brussel;Hannover-Osnabruck-Apeldoorn-Breda-Antwerpen-Brussel), i chose the longest and the worst.

A2 near Utrecht

Also a section of the A12 near Utrecht.

I hope to shoot a video of the N7 expressway in Groningen tomorrow
I don't know if it will work out, since my friend has a new car, i don't know if i can put the camera on the dashboard properly.

^ Nice city bypass! Although I don't like those curves at the beginning. Dutch motorways look quite expensive/qualitative.
