Well I guess not. Though the normal way to say it is just ''km/h''.

*the right way to say it is "km/h". The abbreviation for kilometre is "km" not "k". "K" stands for "kilo" which is a prefix and not a measurement unit by itself.

KPH is mostly used in Canada, UK and Ireland. They have done it their way. It's still MPH and not MLS/H....

Anyway. Lets have some pictures. This is on my delivery trip from the UK to Mo-i-Rana in northern Norway. Travelling through the UK, France, Belgium, Holland (stopped over in Schiedam to see relatives, then went to Sneek to pick my granddad up, he wanted to come to Norway) , Germany, Denmark, Sweden and finally Norway.

Here is the Dutch section of my journey......

Going past Amsterdam Airport


Approaching Amsterdam Orbital A10


Amsterdam Orbital A10


After Amsterdam heading northbound towards the province of Friesland


Afsluitdijk Monument


More to follow....

Nice. Your granddad lives in Sneek? I grew up in Friesland, it's a pretty province. I've had my license since august last year, though I still haven't crossed the afsluitdijk by myself. I'm going to this summer I think

He used to live in Sneek, he actually died a few months ago. I partly grew up there, but now live in Austria and the UK....

My job is to deliver anything that needs to go from the UK to mainland Europe fast. And from Europe back to the UK... and everything in a Sprinter van. I go anywhere between Finland and Portugal and Greece and Norway...

On this particular job they needed train parts. If a factory stands still because they don't have the parts, that's where we come in. In a van we carry up to 5 europallets and 1500 kg weight... This is European Express only - no national courier service, so I'm on that ferry 2-3 times a week. If I'm only going to Germany or France I can do 4 trips a week. I actually partly live in Mayrhofen, Austria - so as much as I can I try and do UK to Italy via Mont Blanc, home the weekend and back to UK via Germany and Belgium. Shipping port is always Calais....

I've uploaded a pic of my van in the Britain thread....

Fascinating. If you still don't know the Clinched Highways Mapping project I bet you can rise fast in the ranking

Please do, the amount of effort I put into making the files for the Norwegian E roads was rather large and one person has 3% clinched near Oslo and that's it. A trip to Mo i Rana would mean that a lot more of my hard work is used!

I'll get onto it then. On my way up I did most of it through Sweden, and crossed the border before Mo, but on my way down I went all the way through Norway, passed Trondheim and Oslo and headed towards Gothenburg...

That trip must have been at least 3,5 years ago.
Pictures don't show recent "spitsstroken" (=hard shoulder running sections)

Ok.

Interesting job. About the clinched highway project. I signed up a couple of days ago but still haven't gotten an email from the admin to verify my account.

No, you send them an ASCII file named yournickname.list with the list of your clinched highways, and they will process it and put the results on the website
