Tell me about it. I've been in severe accidents with a truck twice in my lifetime. I was a in a passenger car both times and both times the police were slightly bewildered I escaped without serious injury.

I take trains these days

This thread is turning into 112*insert location here*.nl though, I guess it's because of the summer season and not much construction going on/no new plans from the government (because all of them are on vacation, get it).

We can't complain about the number of projects though, there haven't been so many road projects in like 30 years.

A car crash happened on the N259 near Halsteren, guess who was around with a camera Don't forget to watch in Full-HD

Halsteren was a chaos thanks to this, a few minutes later the traffic jam was 1 kilometer longer, and I could see it out of my window. Traffic jam was there until about 7 pm (video taped at 5 pm)

25 % less congestion in August

Traffic congestion decreased by 25 percent in the month of August, compared to August 2010, according to the Dutch motorist and tourist association ANWB. Reasons were the additional road capacity, fewer roadworks and lots of rain.

I won't deny it, here in Groningen alone they're well underway with grade-seperating the ring road and the 600m windfall towards the A/N7 won't go to waste in the current legislative climate.

Right now it's 'komkommertijd' though

A67 - New exit Hapert

A new exit called Hapert will open tomorrow in the province of Brabant. It's located along the A67 motorway, west of Eindhoven. It will replace exit Eersel as the westernmost exit along the A67. N284 has been realigned to this new exit as well.

Some photos by Koef:


The new exit was specifically built to improve access to the new industrial area "Kempisch Bedrijvenpark".


The next exit is Retie, which is in Belgium.




Last distance sign in the Netherlands.

N50 Ens

The N50 is currently going through a major reconstruction. The old Ramspol Bridge from 1946 is currently being replaced by a new 4-lane bridge with a higher clearance of 14 meters. Additionally, the N50 is rebuild on a new 4-lane alignment around the town of Ens, including a new grade-separated interchange. I took some pictures yesterday.

Summer congestion slashed by 32%

Congestion during the summer months of June, July and August was cut by 32%, according to the VID - Traffic Information Service. The main reasons are improved motorway capacity and the bad weather which caused fewer congestion towards the beaches, although most of this congestion went unnoticed because it's not on motorways. The overall January - August 2011 congestion was cut by 21.4 % compared to the same period in 2010.

Chaos around Rotterdam, delays of 30 min+ because of this accident:

But it can always be worse: A2 Den Bosch - Utrecht was closed, 15 km solid traffic behiond it and detour routes also stuck. HIghest delay was 2 hrs and 45 mins. on the A2. Road was cleared a few minutes ago (no picture (yet))

CAr crash near Enschede on the A35 is turning Enschede and Hengelo into a car park. Crash happened at exit Delden on the A35, traffic jam is over 10 km from both directions. Delays are 30 min+. Picture: (click)

Is this A74 supposed to be connecting with the A61 in Germany? I drove into Holland via A61 last week, and I've noticed they were doing something behind that petrol station on the border, but the Dutch roundabout at the end of the A61 is still there. It was in the middle of the night when I drove through, and I didn't bother to stop and take a good look.

They do want to connect A61 (D) with A73 (NL).

Incredible, Dutch motorways A73 and A74 are shown like German autobahns. Viewing how short is A74, I would left it without number or extend the German A61 designation to Tiglia interchange.

It's a German map on the German side of the road/construction site

Leaving it with '61' is impossible, because there is a N61 in Holland, so that's not possible. And we like to have a number for every highway, the last numberless highway near Tilburg has been downgraded and now all highways in Holland have a number, even the A38, a highway of barely 1,5 km.

Which was that? I live in Tilburg (since 2009) but never noticed any former highway around here/ Maybe the Ringbaan Zuid ot this stub?
