Use Notepad, Wordpad or similar, and when saving, change where it says "Text file (.TXT)" or "Rich Text file (.RTF)" to "All Files (.*)" and in the name bit put <yourusername>.list

Instructions are here. Emailing doesn't come until #5, where you send your .list file in.

Clinched highways is too annoying to operate. When/if they implement some clickable online feed, I'll register my American, European and South American clinched highways

Nice video. Did you take the wrong exit, or was it a deliberate detour through Groningen?

Yes, I took the wrong exit, because my TomTom gave me wrong instruction.

That looks almost like the overcrossing shown at about 0:20 on the third of the video clips that Chris has a few posts up.

I've had a lecture about this lately, and they build this with the A10-widening in mind, a rare examples of thinking ahead in the Netherlands

That strongly depends on which period you're talking about.

For instance, the earliest motorway construction in the 1930's did not leave room for future expansion. As the Netherlands was among the first countries in the world do gain experience with motorways, nobody was to blame. This continued throughout the 1950's and early 1960's. However, from the mid 1960's they began to implement space reservations, which continued into the 1970's and early 1980's, after which massive motorway construction ceased.

Most new or replaced structures in the 1990's (mostly new bridges and a few new motorways) did not have space for future expansion. However, this was simply policy, back then the rule was not to facilitate any more traffic, and problems would go away themselves. Boy, do we know better now. From the early 2000's, most new structures began to implement space reservations again (most notably along A4 between Burgerveen and Den Haag).

Many space reservations from the late 1960's and 1970's are now graciously used for motorway widenings. For instance the widening of A28 and A50 used existing space, which saved us hundreds of millions of euros, much more than they ever spent on the extra space 40 years ago. The A1 widening east of Deventer will also use existing space reservations in the median.

I've noticed they've changed destinations to Rotterdam instead of The Hague and I've never noticed Alkmaar as destination on the A8.

Very nice renders, I've enjoyed watching them.

Only from interchange Lunetten (A27) to exit Bunnik, about 4 kilometers. It was widened from 6 to 8 lanes in 10 days. It's the first phase of the widening project of A12 between Utrecht and Arnhem. It will mainly serve as a buffer so that traffic on other motorways won't get blocked.

Why only Arnhem? From what I gather, that bit between Arnhem towards the border is becoming a nightmare both ways....
