It's Latin for Tegelen, a nearby town. It probably sounded more fancy. Previously, Ulingsheide was proposed (a nearby heath). I don't know exactly how to pronounce Tiglia, there are basically 3 possibilities: Tik-lia, Tiggggg-lia (Dutch choking ggg) or Tig-lia with a soft g (only used in southern Netherlands, but not as in French).

I assumed it was Italian. Which would be pronounced yet a fourth way.

Nahh, I guess that would be the first one.

And the i should officially be pronounced as 'short i' in Dutch, so you'd get the sound you would get in English 'tigger'. Of course assuming people wouldn't understand it's supposed to be Latin.

Just something more sounding like Tegelen would have been just fine.

Yeah, I just found out. I thought that part was still highway

In Dutch, because I don't have a clue how to say this in English:
Ik las net dit: "Een 2e gemeentelijke snelweg naast de voormalige (nu nummerloze) A261 ?", dus ik begrijp het nu

De Latijnse uitspraak is "Tielja" met een korte nadruk op de L. Dus iets van "Tiellja."

In English phonetics that would be more or less "Teel-ya."

New ecoduct "Hoog-Buurlo" inaugurated last Monday on A1 west of Apeldoorn. It's one out of nine ecoducts under construction currently. There are 215 bottlenecks for wildlife crossings, currently 91 of them have been solved. It increases animal migration and reduces accidents with wildlife. This is one of the few ecoducts that's constructed as a tunnel.

That's what I was thinking of as the Italian pronunciation. I suppose Latin depends on the period, but I think in the classical period, the G and L would have been heard separately - tig-li-a. On the other hand, "Tiglia" really doesn't look that Latin, and Dutch Wikipedia says the origin of the name Tegelen is Latin "Tegula."

At any rate, I thought "tegelen" meant "tiles"....

It is Tiglia
BTW: Don't believe everything you read on wikipedia

Tiles = Tegels. It's very close.

Almost... Tegel = tile, Tegels = tiles (plural). Tegelen is no correct Dutch word, but it's common to have a plural ending in -en, so I can see why Huizen actually means houses

'Tegelen' could be a verb though, meaning 'to tile / tiling', but in correct dutch that would be 'betegelen' (to put tiles on something).

Do they put fences on these things? You don't want a deer falling off of one of those and onto an oncoming vehicle.

Well, it's not finished yet. The structural works are completed (embankments, tunnel construction). The landscaping will take quite some time. In about a year, it will look indistinguishable from the rest of the surroundings. So little Dubai there will become covered with grass, bushes and trees.

A2 Section Control

Rumors have it that the public auction for a section control on A2 between Amsterdam and Utrecht has commenced, and the system will become operational in Q2 2012. The A2 is the widest interurban motorway of Europe, and has 2x5 lanes between Amsterdam and Utrecht. The speed limit however, is only 100 km/h for the entire 45 kilometer section down to Everdingen. I know a lot of people are going to be really upset about this. I'm guessing the system will be vandalized a lot, just like the previous one.

They could also raise the speed limit to 110 or 120 between interchanges A2/A9 and A2/N230.
