I believe some 17 - 18 months. However, I have to add that constructing flyovers like this on urban streets is quite unusual in the Netherlands. There are only a few of such flyovers constructed in the last 5 or 10 years.

A2 widening reduces local traffic

The widening of the A2 motorway from 2x3 to 2x5 lanes has reduced traffic on local roads in the Stichtse Vecht municipality. Traffic counts revealed traffic has dropped on roads running parallel to the A2 motorway after the widening was completed.

The most affected was the N402 / Straatweg, running from Breukelen to Maarssen. Overall traffic was down 15% here, rush hour traffic by as much 36%.

Yes Chris, You are right, recorded in March 2011. Is it a Plus lane in Zwolle before yellow lines/lane? .. and why traffic was separated on IJsselbrug?
From 05:11 till A28 join the A37 speed limit is 100 km/h. I know the whole A28 and A50 by hard since 2009 I started commuting in between Eindhoven and Groningen
Plus line in Zwolle starts from 09:29 on video.

Oh common! For Dutch could be unbelievable to commute such a distance But it's small country so ... it's piece of cake. Actually was it...
Now just 83 km one way everyday :P And I am scanned 10 times per week by this Dutch purple flashing cameras on the border. Do you guys know what's that? Registration plate scanner?

Whatever it was, it was probably evil

Commutes are such a drain on life. Mine was 150km one-way (I had to do that every day). In the end, I moved. Now it's 2km.

N69 Valkenswaard - Eindhoven

The province of Noord-Brabant has presented the "complete solution" for the N69 troubles south of Eindhoven. The current N69 is a narrow two-lane road which traverses two city centers (Valkenswaard & Aalst). It's congested and heavily trafficked by trucks due to industrial areas just across the border in Belgium.

The new road will cost € 140 million and is 8 kilometers long. It will feature 2x1 lanes with a median and branches off N69 south of Valkenswaard and runs north to a new interchange "Veldhoven-West" at A67. The layout of the intersections is unknown, but roundabouts would not surprise me. The speed limit will be 80 km/h.

This road was originally planned in the 1960's as the A69 motorway, and the A24 motorway in Belgium, which was to run from Eindhoven to Hasselt. It would continue south from the "De Hogt" motorway interchange towards the Belgian border. The Belgians actually did construct their motorway, although it is numbered the N74.

A15/A29 Interchange Vaanplein

Some very cool aerial pictures of the motorway interchange Vaanplein. The A15 will be widened to 10 lanes here.

I assume they want to use the existing viaducts as much as possible, considering the interchange was rebuilt in 2003 because of the construction of the Betuwe Route freight railway, otherwise they would have to replace some viaducts after less than one tenth of their estimated lifespan.

The plans for moving the A10 south Amsterdam ringway partially underground are creeping forward: http://www.centrumpp.nl/Images/Struc...318-327859.pdf

Traffic congestion on northbound A4 near Leiden is so bad they installed a VMS counting down the days the roadway will be shifted through the new aquaduct. It's congested nearly all day.
