True, I guess that the government Balkenende CCCLXXVIII sees something in this plans
But seriously, when is it planned to be finished?

I love my job, especially with the current weather we have here. I made some pics of the route i took to a school in Doorn, a village 15km north of Culemborg. It's not all crowded and busy here in the Netherlands as you will see:

the route on a map:



On the dike, north of the river Lek:



A road towards the bridge over the Amsterdam-Rijnkanaal:





Driving under the bridge:



Fruitgardens in blossom:



I took a right turn here, Doorn 12km:





On the bridge, i can't think of any bridge of this size that is as quiet as this one:



The canal, in the distance is another bridge visible. I'm told that they had to built a bridge every 10-15km over the canal to avoid huge detours for local farmers and inhabitants. The bridges where designed to be extra high so large containerships could pass underneath. Later it became clear that there was no need for such large ships and now we have several useless oversized bridges as a reminder:



Over the bridge on the road towards Houten, a suburb of Utrecht:



I took a left turn here, towards Cothen and Doorn:



Lovely cottage:



The watertower of Cothen:



Little bridge over the 'Kromme Rijn' (Curvy Rhine) this used to be the main stream of the Rhine river until 1200 or so:





Nearing the Utrechtse Heuvelrug, an area covered with forests:









And entering Doorn on the N225:

How do you drive on such roads?

When there is no oncoming traffic then in the middle?

Nice pictures. When I go to school, I also drive next to the Amsterdam-Rijnkanaal for about 9 km on my bike. And when going home 9 more, of course.

Hehe. Well, those red lanes officially called "fietssuggestiestroken". Something like 'a suggestion for bicyclists to drive on this lane'. You have to let the bicyclists feel free on this lanes (you are not allowed to block it), but you also need to (just as in every right-driving country) keep right. So that's contrary... But you ARE allowed to use the red markings, so the police can never get you on that. Only if the lines are undashed you're forbidden to drive there. But in that case the normal part is usually wide enough for 2 vehicles passing each other.

The reality: people just drive on the red markings (if dashed). Also since a lot of these roads are too busy to drive in the middle of the road.

I tried to say "no idea", but my Polish isn't what it has been. How come you speak dutch so well. Btw, what do you mean with your last sentence?

x 2 That is tricky

Ang what if there is a bend, so you need to stick to right side, but in the same time you must drive slowly enough not to hit a potential cyclist over the corner

So you used to speak Polish?
If You want to say "no idea" it would be like this:

Nie mam pojecia
or
Nie mam zielonego pojęcia(I have no green idea)

-----

Well, with the last sentence I meant that You probably wanted to say that it is nothing difficult to understand how to drive on such roads, but it eventually turned to sound a bit awkward, actually I did not even finish this sentence

Busy holiday traffic today. The first 20km traffic jam has already popped up at the A27 motorway.

I think it is the ANWB site. A lot of traffic going to Belgium today. A lot of people go on holiday now, because the schools are off for 2 weeks. I'm off too, but I'm staying home, unfortunately.
