That is confusing. Especially seeing that the A50 between Arnhem and Apeldoorn carries a lot of Germans... But then again, Germans are not the best of shoulder runners. I see it at Munich every day.

From border to border, has the Netherlands actually put Brussel on their signs yet on the A76?

No, it will only be signed from Kerensheide interchange, not from the German border. Brussel is being signposted on the E40.

No, Antwerpen is signed there, because Brussel is signed via E40 from Aachen.

From Aachen to Brussels I always use A76, regardless what the Germans put on their signs. I don't like the Liege route, and through the Netherlands is just as quick and long.

Belgians can take an example to this sign: all places are spelled in their own prime language. So Liège and Antwerpen on one sign.

(Because Brussel is bilingual we in NL of course choose the Dutch name, which is also being continued on E314 and E40).

Belgium can't follow that example without changing their laws.

I'll stay out of the question of what the "prime language" ("primary," I'd say) of "Brussel" is, other than pointing out that "Brussel" is not English. :-P

On a cheerier note, only 2 more weeks for 130 instead of 120km/h .

Ok, that's the party I'd vote for if I was still living in Holland. I'm surprised actually...

Do we need the politics here? It's bad enough that transportation is so politicized.

Do you ever get out of your car when you go places? Try it on a beach, it's nice.

I think maybe RWS should open the beach for car traffic, limited to 60 km/h, from November-March, 8h-16h, between Noordwijk and Zandvort and/or between Zandvoort (northern end) to IJmuiden.

I am sorry. But eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. So, if Snowdog behaves as uncivilized as he did in the remark which triggered me to address him, I will reply. And I'll try to (and actually did) refrain myself from political arguments. C'est le ton qui fait la musique.

That's one way to look at it, but I'm sure some people would ask you in return what makes you think your pleasure is by any means more worthwhile or important than the life of a bird. Not necessarily my opinion, but imho it is as valid an opinion as yours. In this case I assume our democracy did it's job. And sorry, you apparently lost.

So in your mind, leaving your trash behind on the beach when you leave is the definition of fun?

Rotterdamsebaan, Den Haag

The national government and three municipalities have reached an agreement about the alignment of financing of the Rotterdamsebaan, a new 2x2 road from the Ypenburg motorway interchange into the Den Haag central business district. It involves a 2.1 kilometer tunnel. The costs are € 565 million, excluding VAT. It will not be a motorway, traffic signals will remain underneath the Ypenburg interchange to restrict traffic flow into the CBD.

Thats bananas. How long is the whole section, 4 km? Those are really high costs.
