Nuclear Security Summit 2014

It appears that many people took the advice to take a day off today, the enormous congestion that was feared did not materialize. Several motorways are closed or partially closed for the Nuclear Security Summit. There was even less congestion than usual this morning.

Hopefully this doesn't lead people into thinking they won't have any delays tomorrow, otherwise everyone would hit the road tomorrow and create havoc.

Driving around The Hague this morning was more like on a Sunday morning than weekday rush hour. I experienced no delays at all, anywhere.

You guys sure don't beat around the bush. The Dutch could give Albertans a run for their money with the speed of construction.

What does mean the green mark in the center of the line?

It means the maximum speed is 100km/h. No green = 80km/h.

But there are also stretches with green where only 80 is allowed, and locations without greens where 100 of even 50 is allowed. It's part of our sustainable wrecked roadway program...

Nuclear Security Summit

People heeded the advice and stayed home or took alternate transport during the Nuclear Security Summit. A44 was closed and A4 partially closed during the NSS motorcades. The extreme congestion that was predicted did not materialize. Overcrowding of public transport did also not occur.

Traffic was down 20% in all of South & North Holland provinces, also on stretches not affected by the NSS closures or detours. On the directly affected routes (either due to partial closures or detours), traffic was down by more than 50%, and this is not vacation time in the Netherlands. It is likely that traffic was down by around 75% between Amsterdam and The Hague. It's notable how A4 carries over 50% less traffic than normally while functioning as the detour of the closed A44.

The VID reports in Dutch: http://vid.nl/Nieuws/article/VID.2014.084.04

Road authority Rijkswaterstaat is thanking the Dutch motorists for heeding to the warnings and not creating havoc on the motorways due to the Nuclear Security Summit.

Rijnland Route, Leiden

South Holland province has published the draft environmental impact statement for the Rijnlandroute today. The Rijnland Route is a new expressway along the southern side of Leiden that will dramatically improve east-west traffic in this densely populated region.

The plan:


They also released more details about the design of the tunnel between A4 and A44;

* length: 2,550 meters
* total length (including ramps): 2,888 meters
* twin-tube
* T10.5 profile (outer diameter dimension of 10.5 meters)
* tunnel clearance of 4.7 meters - no height detection required
* will be constructed with the slurry shield method using a TBM
* 2x2 lanes, no shoulders (roadway width of 7.85 meters between the barriers)
* maximum depth: -32.2 meters
* speed limit: 80 km/h
* 2030 AADT: 57,000 vehicles per day

Forecasted 2030 AADT:

Will the A44 be able to take the traffic between ''knp. Maaldrift'' and Leiden-West ?

108k cars seems a bit much for 2x2 lanes, or will there be a 2x3 upgrade ?

Also the A4, I think 2x3 lanes is not sufficient. Prins Clausplein > N11 should be 2x4 at least at all times with this new road.


Local roads, especially through Leiden, will be much calmer though! Potentially the N14 and N44 too, anyone coming from the south but needing to be westwards of the N44 will not have to go west so soon.

2x4 upgrade.

2 through lanes and 2 weaving lanes between the interchange and the exit.

4 meters. Most bridges have a clearance of 4.3 meters, so clearances of 4.1 or 4.2 meters are usually indicated with the blue "height sign".

Good to see an ambitious plan that at the same time makes perfect sense (looking at you A10 South tunnel).
