^I just heard it on the news! Not normal anymore!

Worst ever - With snow +/- 1100km
Today - With snow +/- 850km

That other day, the traffic was stuck all the way from Maastricht (south) to Amsterdam (north). !! Good luck to the people that are standing in the snow!

The traffic jams eventually topped out at 900 kilometers. I think it was more than that, because the A2 between Den Bosch and Utrecht had no traffic jams, which is simply impossible, that section is always jammed. I think the traffic jam detection in the roadway didn't work.

This morning traffic jams caused over 10 million € in direct damage for the transportation industry.

It is actually this traffic jam that made Abcoude quite famous. The radio report repeated every hour 4 times: "A2 between Eindhoven and Amsterdam, from Boxtel to Abcoude, 87 km". I was very lucky to know a small route to sneak past the jams.

btw, I recently heard that the A2 between Den Bosch and Eindhoven only exits for about 15 years. Does anyone have pics of the road when it was still the 2-laned N2?

Yes, that section is quite new, however, undersized with frequent traffic jams.

Another thing. Yesterdays traffic jams accumulated over 2100km of queue according to TomTom. Regular traffic information only includes motorways and only those with automated traffic jam detection. A lot of area's outside the Randstad don't have those detections.

Lots of accidents on those "dodenwegen" like the N33?

Video: A28-A32 Staphorst - Steenwijk
I made a video today of the A28-A32 link just north of Zwolle. It shows an interchange, and various exits and underpasses.

Nice. I used to be crazy for interchanges between motorways. Probably b/c in Slovenia we only had 1 until 1995.
