Possibly, except for the fact that in this case the problem would be expanding existing smaller communities with more housing to alleviate big city-problems while forgetting/not being able to add extra labour in those places. The end result might be considered similar to US situations but it started in an entirely different way.

Hopefully they finally start acting on it...

Look forward to the new A2 between Amsterdam and Utrecht.

The following map contains the sections which are structurally jammed during some point of the day. (Not all at the same time ofcourse). Other sections can be jammed too in case of incidents.

Some updates of the widening of the A2:

Tandemwals en drieroller walsen het eerste baantje, op de achtergrond McDonalds Rosmalen.


Scania-vrachtwagen en de Vögele Super 1900-asfaltmachine leggen het asfalt.


Alle walsen op een rij, eerst de bandenwals die het asfalt goed knedend verdicht, vervolgens de tandemwals en daarna de drieroller. De heftige regen van gisteren zorgt voor een mysterieus effect omdat die voor stoomvorming zorgt. Gelukkig gaat hij van de snelweg af.


Deze laag-bij-de-grondse foto van de walsen in de stoom van de regen op het asfalt vind ik zeer geslaagd! Rechts een waterwagen om de watertanks van de walsen bij te vullen en de koplampen van de file op de A2. Weet je toch waarvoor je bezig bent.


Nog een keer de walsen in de stoom.


Asfalteren brengt behoorlijk wat drukte mee!


Foto van de eerste baan, genomen vanonder de nieuwe fly-over Waalwijk>Utrecht.


Deze foto vind ik een absolute topper, met zowel de asfalt als het viaduct in aanbouw erop. En natuurlijk de stoomvorming. Merk links de grote verschillen in het asfalt op doordat de bandenwals erop is gereden en terug is gestoken.


De machine spreidt hier een verse A2 uit. :mrgreen:


De machine met vrachtwagen in perspectief. Precies in de bak het bord voor de A59 richting Waalwijk.


De hele eerste laag zit er in! Nog net op de foto de toekomstige splitsing A2/A59 in knp. Empel.
A2 around Eindhoven:

A4 around Halsteren almost finished (opening dec 15th)

Found this image of the new A2 upgrade and tunnel near Utrecht:



Is it really going to be 3-4-4-3 lanes? That would be a huge upgrade from 2x3 now to 2x7 then...

It will be 2-3-3-2, I gather the render is supposed to be the south side where extra pre-weaving lanes are added towards Oudenrijn interchange.

To be frank, i think 10 lanes are barely enough to support all future traffic from Vinex Neighborhood Leidsche Rijn (future population 80.000). According to models, 80.000 people (approximatly 40.000 households) produce about 200.000 traffic movements per day. Ofcourse, they won't be all on the A2 or outside the neighborhood, but it is like adding another large city to an already overcrowded motorway that needs 2x5 lanes with current traffic.

I kind of hope they will upgrade and extend the N230 to a motorway/expressway between A12 and A27. Such a large neighborhood has an impact on the whole region, traffic-wise.

It's been a while since i've made some pics, so i decided to take a trip to the far north: Friesland or Fryslân as locals say. Friesland is a different kind of Netherlands, since they are speaking their own language (although everybody speaks Dutch too), and there are a lot of crazy village names, which are also sometimes hard for the Dutch to pronounciate.

N359 Lemmer - Workum - Bolsward - Leeuwarden

[IMG]http://i5.************/87n71vm.png[/IMG]

First, the N359, a 64 kilometer motorroad, with a speed limit of 100 kilometer per hour. This goes through a beautiful part of Friesland; Gaasterland. A new Aquaduct (Galamadammen Aquaduct) has just been finished a couple a days ago. Some typical Dutch landscapes are seen, although it was a bit hazy sometimes.

For N359 pics see last post on previous page


N31 Leeuwarden - Drachten

[IMG]http://i9.************/6wzvde1.png[/IMG]

The N31 is a national road controlled by the national government. It is one of the main transport axis in Friesland, and has just been widened to 2x2 lanes, but not with emergency lanes. Speed limit is 100km/h, although generally people tend to drive 120km/h on this semi-motorway. It starts at the end of the N359 serie, and goes by Leeuwarden, the capital of Friesland, and heads for Drachten, another larger city in the province.

Hey, what's the deal with this?



Does it open at 8:00, or is it open 24 hours?

OK, but why not put "open 8.00-24.00" instead? That's a rhetorical question...

I'm guessing this is a canal bridge-- it's pretty massive looking, and I don't see a railroad on the map:



Pretty cool.
