N259 (Tilburg - Reusel), N284 (Reusel - Belgium)

N269 is route connecting Tilburg to Reusel. It starts at interchange De Baars, and until Hilvarenbeek it is built up to highway standards. I suppose it was meant to be an autosnelweg all the way to A57, but never finished.

Beginning of the highway sector.


Old-school concrete pavement and early 70's generous viaducts.


Don't ever think of speeding, despite the huge median and everything else. Blame it on 'consistency'.


Nice landscaping near a nearby Safari park.




One of those complex roundabouts with 2-lanes and low median. End of the highway-standard sector


Grade-separated junction as Hilvarenbeek. There is ROW ready for widening there.




Lage Mierd. Here, the road is just a normal one, no ROW reserved for widening.




Now, a building in the middle of N284


Belgian border


I'll post more on the Belgian thread

That's an interesting place to put a small hotel (Hotel La Frontiere). I guess it's well soundproofed, given the proximity to the road. I initially mistook it for the old customs building. I guess the greyish building was the old Customs facility.

N61 Hoek - Schoondijke

Minster Schultz of transportation signed the final record of decision today for the widening of N61 to a 4-lane divided highway. Works should commence later this year and an opening is foreseen in early 2014. The N61 is not very busy with 12,000 vehicles per day but is one of the unsafest N-roads in the Netherlands with many fatalities. To not disturb the free horizon in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, no grade-separated interchanges will be constructed. A small portion near a sensitive natural area west of Hoek will remain two-laned. The rest will get 2x2 lanes.

Yes, there is an old customs building with a rusty flag pole after this building, and then a Belgium country sign.

I was looking at that with Google's Streetview. Must be an interesting story as to how putting the hotel there was possible.

When I was there some years ago I remember only an old frontierbuilding in that spot. Nice hotel, far better than the old building.

N305 Almere - Harderwijk

Roadworks will commence this week to widen the N305 provincial highway from 2 lanes to a 4-lane dual carriageway for 20 kilometers.

From March 1st, 130 km/h will be the maximum speed limit on A7 between Wognum and Zurich (55 km).

This is part of a series of trials to increase speed limits on various motorways and study the effects on noise emissions, air quality and traffic safety. By July 2011, 8 motorways will receive a 130 km/h speed limit.

You seem very excited by this development....

Just to accentuate it

It's remarkable that in this day and age where 80% of the Dutch rural roads are downgraded from 80 to 60 km/h we can still see speed limit increases.

Well apparently it's a heavily utilized back route from Harderwijk to Almere and to Amsterdam. It is considered on of the least safe routes in Flevoland because of many head-on accidents.

But the N305/Waterlandseweg (between A6 and A27) is 2x1 so what's the use in upgrading only that part? If it's just to provide safe means for passing other cars wouldn't alternating 2+1 have been a more economic solution?

What fog? That's a pretty standard level of visibility here. You should see this place when the really dense North Sea fog comes rolling in:
