AADT is 88.000 on the southside of Groningen. But i think it's only 40.000 in this section to Germany, and eventually lowers off to 10.000 near the German border. But 40.000 is still too much to handle with traffic lights.

The first day we get a snow storm or ice in the roads, we will get a new nr 1 traffic jam day :S. Nothing has changed, the roads near Rotterdam, The Hague and Amsterdam dont get a lot more capacity and their will be a day the entire country will be 1 big traffic jam.

The record is 975 km. I doubt if we can beat that.

Maybe if a snowstorm comes sudden without any pre-warnings.

Last year, severe weather was predicted, and the evening rushhour was the most quiet ever, because everybody went home early, or took a day off work.

This morning, a multi-vehicle pile-up causes problems on the A2 southbound near Zaltbommel (Utrecht -> Eindhoven). Exact figures of the number of vehicles involved are unclear, and are ranging from 25 cars to 70 cars.

The southern part of the ring A10 around Amsterdam now cuts through the Zuidas business district and is a huge barrier between the 2 parts. The wide median is used by the metro- and railway lines

In the future this stretch will submerge below ground in a double 2-layer tunnel. The metro and railway will be underground too, a huge project.

I have travelled many times on that interchange (from Groningen to Zwolle), and i don't like it, there is too little room to decelerate and take the 55km/h cloverleaf. They should have build parallel lanes here. (like interchange Hoevelaken).

Interresting video. It looks quite busy on Saturday. Also the song is nice. Sorry for being offtopic, but can you tell me what's its name?

Dutch motorways are always busy somehow. Drive on sunday on the A1 or A2 near Amsterdam, and all 3 lanes are full with traffic.

The song is by Marillion - Seasons End

Thank you for that song.

Well, roads around big cities are always busy, but if this is Saturday I don't want to see traffic on Monday...

Well, i think that Dutch motorways are always busy, because there are no realistic alternatives to them. I drove today also by Bielefeld, which is 2 times larger than Arnhem, but traffic levels were much lower there. Same within the Ruhrgebiet, the rural A50 between Zwolle and Apeldoorn was much more busy than the German A2 right through the largest urban area of Germany. Same with Osnabrück. (i'll show video's later from there).

By that realistic alternative you mean some parallel roads?
