Now I know why in Belgium they still use E-... numbering for motorways. The same about more then one blue round sign with => on the middle islands/dividers.

I believe this was before roadnumbering was started to be signed.

New Waal River Bridge, Nijmegen

The 285 meter span of the new Waal River Bridge at Nijmegen will be shipped into position tomorrow. This is one of the largest bridge spans in the Netherlands, and the first of this size that is being shipped into position, rather than constructed on-site. Water levels and wind forecasts are favorable for the operation.

This bridge is not to be confused with the nearby A50 Waal River Bridge that is being constructed a couple of kilometers downstream.

Do you mean like this?
That's a typical NL thing i think. I have never seen that in Belgium or anywhere else.

The new bridge is of couse positive, but what on earth have they done to the road on the center-right in your picture, why the sudden sharp corner in it (where the Mauritsingel joins alongside the railway)?

Also destroying the exit near the bottom bridge :s ?

That's where the acces road to the new bridge will connect with the N325. it will be a junction regulated with traffic lights.

Great .

I assume it's at the railway station ? I'm sure there could have been a better solution for the same costs ?

Will at least the traffic going north be unhampered by the traffic lights once it's done ( the one with still the smooth curve)? Can easily be done by letting traffic simply merge from the lights...

They have also seemed to destoyed some nice standalone houses for ugly row housing .

Hope the new bridge will relief some of the traffic though!

N50 Zwolle - Emmeloord

I accumulated over 1100 photos of the N50 widening and bridge construction over the past 3 years. Here's a little collage I made for a video I will publish later.

That exit and the surrounding buildings are (being) demolished to make more room for the river Waal.

N201 Aalsmeer Bypass

The Waterwolf Tunnel will open to traffic tomorrow. It's a 2x2 tunnel that carries the new N201 provincial road around Aalsmeer. It's part of one of the largest provincial road projects in Dutch history, including flyovers, viaducts, new interchanges with A4 and another tunnel at Amstelhoek.

What do you mean? Are they widening the river channel? Or building some new retention pond?

They are digging a secondary canal to improve water flow at extreme discharges. Nijmegen otherwise becomes a bottleneck, the quays flood frequently.

N201 Aalsmeer Bypass

The new N201 Aalsmeer bypass opened today. The whole project is not finished yet, so I expect traffic counts will be low until the project is finished.



The flyover at the beginning connects the Aalsmeer flower auction with the main road network. This flower auction is the world's largest indoor trading area at 860 000 m² (almost 50% larger than The Pentagon).

It seems things are really moving in NL, they are taking a more technocratic approach towards infrastructure projects. Too bad we in Belgium are still in the phase of lot of talking but no action . We should take an example to the neighbors.

A quick look under the widened A10 and the new A5 in Amsterdam, seen from a train reaching Sloterdijk:
