Photo update of the A4 near Halsteren:

All photos can be found here (Picasa).
Towards Steenbergen, seen from viaduct:





Same situation as above, but seen from viaduct now

Towards Bergen Op Zoom

This is on top of the exit. You can see the space where the roundabout will come.

I also made a video (FULL-HD ), this is the sped up version, click here for the normal version:

Avg. speed camera's on a 2x5 lane flat straight stretch going through farmville with probably next to none accidents happening, to protect the safety and the ''environment'', my arse, let the milking of the motorist begin on the A2 ! Double the current speed limit is far more suitable there than the current one...

Another decision that will increase the gap between the (working) people and the government!

I think that besides politics and some (local) NIMBY's everyone agrees with you, including me ofcourse. This is ridiculous. If the max speed is 130 km/h I wouldn't mind section control. This is just a way for the government to get money

That 100km/h (A2 Amsterdam-Utrecht) limit is very strange, also considering that the 8 lane section between Intersection Everdingen and Intersection Deil has a limit of 130km/h now. That makes no sense to me.

I believe it was a settlement between nimby/leftwing parties and other groups, so that the 5th lane could be openend.

Set up a counter-protesting organisation, and settle at 120 and section control?

A caravan exploded near interchange Everdingen:

The trafficcam is out of order now.

Delays of around 45 mins. on the A2 northbound.

A rather large error by the eastern Netherlands road district.

There is no German A54. They meant B54.

Huge traffic chaos in The Netherlands:
So everyone kinda knows where it is: The road you see at the top of the pic, is the southern Ringroad of Rotterdam.

The location where both directions are closed, was just cleared (bridge wouldn't close anymore...)

It was a very unfortunate combination of incidents, which shows the vulnerability of our system, relying on bridges and tunnels:

Late afternoon there was an accident on the southbound A16 near Dordrecht. Because of this, there was a recommended route diversion via the A29.

Around 16.00h the closing barriers of the Haringvliet Bridge (A29) malfunctioned and stayed closed for a while, resulting in accumulating traffic on all three sides, which was already busy south bound because of the diversion.

Northbound traffic was diverted to the A17, but around 18.00 there was an accident on the northbound A17 adding to the chaos.

90 on all lanes. Electronic signs supersede other signs. Normally it's 80 km/h. Though the rules are not weird, this particular situation is. Usually electronic signs indicate lower limits than permanent signs, not higher ones.

Why isn't the red circle used on electronic speed limits signs?

Volkerak Bridge
the bridge over the locks (sluizen).
