Off course, I could have known. The Dutch north is different to the US (international?) north(bound).

Well no. North is not a Dutch word

I do not expect combinations like A10-noord in this English thread.

It's the official name of that stretch of A10. It's like a street name.

[A10 noord] is a official name for a particular stretch of the Amsterdam Ring? I thought it was just complementary to mark the direction of the ring road, but not an official name. Like when on an US Interstate you get the cardinal direction after the shield.

No, they aren't cardinal directions. Noord, Oost, Zuid and West is being used to compare the location of that part of the A10 to the city centre.

It opened in 1970 as a motorway, but didn't become a rijksweg until the major road transfer year of 1993.

The curve was built to accomodate a motorway-to-motorway interchange.

1983 map.
A7 between Purmerend and Hoorn was built as a total new motorway. The old road between Amsterdam and Hoorn was the E-10 (nowadays N247) via Edam.

That would be strange because the name of A10 is Einsteinweg at that section.

Hi--I'm sticking my nose in to ask about a major Rijkswaterstaat contract which had its bid opening in September. The TenderNed.nl announcement can be found here:

https://www.tenderned.nl/tenderned-w...0fb/cid/326432

It is captioned as "Het realiseren van 2 calamiteiten(verbindings)bogen tussen de A9 en de A22 bij Velsen en bij Beverwijk." One of the attachments says that construction of missing links between the A9 and A22 is part of the project, but Google's suggested translation for the term calamiteitenbogen--"calamity arches"--does not make any sense. Can anyone clarify what it means?

As an aside, the documentation (still available for download) includes direction signing plans, but not--as far as I can tell--sign panel detail sheets.

They're basically building 2 ramp connectors that have not been built yet in the Velsen interchange (southbound A22 to northbound A9 and the other way around). The word 'calamiteit' (emergency) is used because they are being built because of the closure of the Velsertunnel for maintenance in 2016. Traffic from places like Velserbroek would have to make alot of extra kilometers without those extra connectors.

From the Raasdorp interchange to exit Amsterdam-Westpoort on december 14th last year
From Amsterdam-Westpoort to the Coentunnel on May 13th this year

A major crash resulted in a closure of A12 in both directions

It's not yet clear, the truck crossed the median and crashed into the RandstadRail Bridge, why that happened is not clear yet.

I Believe the road is open again today.

The truck driver became ill and lost control of his vehicle. That's also the main cause of trucking accidents.

N359 Leeuwarden - Bolsward

A nice provincial road project is the upgrade of the N359 provincial road from Leeuwarden to Bolsward. It is built as a high-speed road but lacks controlled access. They will turn intersections into interchanges.

The Council of State today dismissed the appeals against the construction of an underpass and ramps at Hilaard. Construction will likely be in 2014. This is the first of three interchanges at Hilaard, Húns-Leons and Winsum. Interchanges between Winsum and Bolsward will be constructed at a later time.

When my grandfather was a truck driver in the 1950s, it was a well-respected profession that required a lot of training. Those guys took it very seriously.

These days, any jackass with a van license...
