It better be. Any more delays to this motorway and I'm very liable to just start pouring the concrete myself. How much does it cost to rent one of those trucks with a centrifuge on the back?

A4 Steenbergen

The beams for a bicycle bridge across the A4 motorway were installed last night. They are 56 meters long and transported by truck.

The existence of them was already acknowledged last year, but the extent of them became clear just now. There are some doubts whether the planned half-depressed motorway is still feasible.

What is the problem with these pipes. Can't they just close them or demolish them?

That actually gave me a fun idea for a protest. You could just go to the nearest football club and borrow one of those little carts that paint white lines on grass. Then you paint the road markings of the A4 onto the fields to make a statement: "See? It's not so hard!"

Yes it is, but not on a widespread scale nowadays, because housing construction (and streets) have stalled considerably due to the recession.



Brick streets are extremely common in Dutch residential areas because of their authentic look, traffic calming noise and ease of later underground works.

Yes, it is being used. A company in Nieuw-Buinen (location) apparently has 5 of them in use! You can find a list of projects it's been used on here including pics

A29 Haringvliet Bridge

The toll plaza at the Haringvliet Bridge (A29 south of Rotterdam) in 1966. The toll collection was ceased in 1975 when the bridge was transferred to Rijkswaterstaat.

Do you have a picture of the Toll Plaza at the W-A bridge near Tiel?

Can someone identify at which approximate date his map (shown on the Kroller-Muller Museum) was originally printed?

Judging by the style of the symbols I'd say sometime in the 1970s. I have maps from that time at home still and they look just like that.

Somewhere between 1968 and 1976.
- opening Keizersveer bridge in A27 with 1x2 lanes in 1968 (just south of Hank in your pic)
- Interchange Gorinchem is still a roundabout on your pic, it was converted to a cloverleaf in 1976.

That north-south route in the Land van Altena was never built. It was suppose to make a direct connection from Gorinchem to Tilburg, with an additional bridge across the Bergsche Maas River.

Note that A59 was still a two-lane road on that map. It was later widened to 4 lanes. You can still see this wasn't originally planned as a motorway, due to the high number of (incomplete) interchanges. It's actually a rather busy motorway with many sections exceeding 60 000 - 70 000 vehicles per day.
