Hello everyone!!

Last week I came back from one week visit in the Netherlands and I have to say its a very beautiful country.

I got to drive a lot on your motorways and what I noticed is that you are using very nice, estetic, see through noise barriers on the side of the major roads.

Could someone please post a few pictures of the noise barriers you are using in the Netherlands? I would like to show on our forum what we should be using in Poland in major cities istead of the ugly, huge screens we are currently using..

I thought they were going to remove that silly thing?

Edit: Looking at that picture on the right, you have to admire the lane discipline in the Netherlands, in comparison to a lot of other European nations, including Germany.

this maybe looks nicer and more hi-tech but isn't more expensive than a normal 5m tall noise barrier?

The Twente Canal was dug during the 1930s. It connects the IJssel River at Zutphen with Almelo, Hengelo and Enschede, the three major cities of the Twente region in eastern Netherlands.

First they built the bridges, then they dug the canal.

I sometimes wonder do I drive through a different Germany ?

When I drive in Germany at high pace ( 180 ish km/h), usually the only ones who pull out at slow speeds like 130 km/h are the ''Nur Links'' plates... Barely ever had been pulled out on me by German plates, just Dutch and Poles...

Lane discipline is appalling when there is a bit more traffic too in the Netherlands, just drive on the A16 near Rotterdam, the right lane only has trucks with hundreds of meters of free space in between, and middle and left lanes are clogged with slow ass cars tailgating each other.

The glass noise barriers seem very attracting for graffiti ''artists'':

Yeah well, your opinions are loud, aggressive and without any knowledge. I am in a really bad mood right now, and the last thing I want is a empty headed moaning opinion from Postman Pat from Capelle.

Vice versa, mr. slow bus driver... You seem to be spouting nonsense how Dutch lane discipline is good, or better than German anyhow, which is utter nonsense. Dutch lane discipline is rubbish mostly.
I'm on the roads every day here to see how **** lane discipline is, you aren't...

Comm on guys... Postman Pat & mr. Slow Bus Driver, let's give each others names and tell them you stink...

I actually meant in the other direction, it's notorious with mid lane hoggers... Every single day it's the same... But you can say that about the A12 too! Gouda-Utrecht is really bad in that aspect! Right lane is really under-used...

They're all conspiring to slow you down. They vote GroenLinks and they have a whole GPS system set up so they know where you are and can get in your way.
