Major problems in Eindhoven, a suspended bicycle circle above a road intersection is on the verge of collapsing. The road has been shut down and traffic is diverted. The bicycle circle is currently still under construction. This appears to be a major design flaw.

What does the "7000-7500" underneath Eindhoven refer to?

In all major Dutch cities (and also in Rotterdam Port) they use numbers from 0000-9999 to designated industrial areas.

That makes it fairly easy (if one wants to follow truck routes) to reach such areas from the highways without getting stuck in narrow inner city streets. I guess the "tradition"steems from the past, before GPS units, so that you didn't need to bother with the specifics of an industrial park, just followed the signs according to the numbers.

Rotterdam docks are numbered the same way. But the scale of things there is 2 orders of magnitude bigger...

In southern-Limburg the numbers go up to 27.000 if I remember correctly.

So if you want to go to 7000, you head towards Meerhoven. And if you want to go to 7000, you head towards Eindhoven.

There is no number 7000

They usually take steps of 5 (1025-1030-1035) or 10 at a time to number industrial houses. Which means that when you have number 1200, your neighbour will have 1205 or 1210. They also don't use the 'border-numbers' (in this case 7000).

What's the specific flaw? (Did someone forget to carry the '2' in a calculation??? )

A suspended hovering bicycle roundabout?! Well, there's something I've never seen before...

The ropes which suspend the bicycle circle are shaking too much when there is a lot of wind.

Conclusion: The ropes aren't strong enough...

Well it's not the first time we built some extravaganza bicycle infrastructure.

For instance this 300 meter, € 21 million bicycle bridge span next to A1 near Muiden (foreground)

Or this bicycle bridge across A12 near Zoetermeer.

Just thought I'd share this vid: in 2 mins from the center of Amsterdam to Vianen, just south of Utrecht via Haarlemmerweg, A10 and A2. Video by Thomas Schlijper, an Amsterdam based photographer (www.*************).

Yep, Chemelot. The photo covers just about one third of the total industrial complex. It spans for almost 5 kilometers along A2. It may be the biggest industrial complex outside the Port of Rotterdam area.

It is about the same size as Tata Steel IJmuiden.

N31 Harlingen

The design-record of decision for the widening of N31 through the town of Harlingen, Fryslân province, has been published today.



The N31 will be widened from 1x2 to 2x2 lanes. The road will be depressed through Harlingen, at -4.6 meters. There will be one interchange to serve the city, instead of several ramps spread out along the corridor. The crossing with the Van Harinxma shipping canal will be an aquaduct, where the N31 will run at -10.0 meters. The whole depressed route is 1.8 kilometers long. This is the final project to widen N31 to a motorway or a 2x2, limited access expressway. Construction is expected to begin in 2013. The project is due for completion in 2017 and cost € 143 million.
