Interesting is that the current ring of Groningen is the combination of two separate ringroads in the original plans. South of the never completed cloverleaf the ring makes a sharp turn from west to north. Changing from the route of current ring from the planned inner ring tot the planned outer ring. You can still clearly see on the map where the remainder of the inner ring was supposed to have been build.

A12 Utrecht - Gouda

A formal decision has been made to open the left shoulder to traffic permanently from Woerden to Gouda, a 16 kilometer stretch. It will feature a 120 km/h speed limit throughout the day, except near Gouda where the road is narrower due to the Gouwe Aquaduct.

This segment of motorway will then feature 4 westbound lanes all the way from Utrecht to Gouda. They will widen the left lane to 3.5 m.

That looks pretty impressive and respectfull. Let's hope this airplane wreckage will help to give some final answers.


There are some good video's on Youtube of Team Verkeer Den Haag (Traffic Team The Hague), with points of view from the different motorcycles/ambulances involved in these police escorts.
Interesting to watch, I think. They give a good idea of what's involved with these police escorts.

Here is a link to their youtube list of videos.

Rijnlandroute

States-Provincial of Zuid-Holland province have approved the final EIS (provinciaal inpassingsplan - PIP) for the construction of the 'Rijnlandroute', an east-west expressway that will link A4, A44 and N206 in the Leiden metro area.

There were 37 votes for and 13 against.

The design EIS plan:


The final EIS will likely be published in early 2015, but who knows it may be in the next two weeks. They often do not publish large project plans during holiday season.

The central piece of infrastructure is a 2520 meter long bored twin-tube tunnel. It is planned to open to traffic in 2019.

The number N434 has been rumoured for the Rijnlandroute.

Are there first traffic counts for the new A4 sector that opened couple weeks ago? Has it affected in any way traffic on A16 already?

Will the part linking the A4 and A44 be A434 then? It's not like it links to any non motorway!

The part from the A44 to Katwijk will remain the N206. The link between the A4 and the A44 wil be called the N434, because it will be a 80 km/h non-motorway.

I have a question you might help me with.

Friends will come over at the end of this month. They want to see a massive firework setting, so I'm planning on taking them to somewhere near the Erasmusbrug in Rotterdam.

I'm finding conflicting information about parking on the area. Apparently many parking garages will be closed until midday Jan 1st. I don't want to risk park the car on streets (vandalism, rogue fireworks etc).

Does anyone know a particular place that might be a safe alternative to park the car? I was thinking of the Erasmus hospital complex, but couldn't find any online info on whether their parking garages will stay open as usual throughout the night.

Public transportation is not an option since there is none after 20.00 till 8.00 the following day.

Nowhere is safe during those two days. As a rule of thumb: park in a residential zone (but at least 50 meters from bars, cafes, clubs or other such establishments where crowds gather). People tend to make the mistake of moving their cars to industrial areas in the assumption that there will be fewer people throwing fireworks around. Which is true, but industrial areas tend to attract the nut cases with the big fireworks bombs.

Any place where these idiots can fool around because there are few people and not a lot of police officers, is a place you'll want to avoid parking a car.

Yeah, that is why I want a covered garage. My guess is that since hospitals stay open for the night (obviously), the attached parking garages will also stay open.

I doubt that. But even if it's true, it'll probably be full in under 3 minutes.

The below-surface parking garage right in front of Central Station? It's usually quite empty. At a 'national fireworks display' you'd assume the city of Rotterdam would ask RET to deploy a shuttle service between CS and Erasmusbrug. There's also a really large parking garage underneath the Markthal not many people may know about, since it's relatively new. Normally it's open 24/7. I consider that one to be walkable to Erasmusbrug.

I don't know how crazy the roads to them are going to be though.

According to this news report parts of the city centre are firework free, so it would be safe to park your car there.

I went to the fireworks at the Erasmusbrug last new years with my family.
I parked the car in a parking garage off the Hartmansstraat (close to the Witte de withstraat). Perfect location and only 10 minutes walk to the bridge.

In general, what could be the most spectacular firework show in the Randstad?

A lot of hype is being pulled on the show at the Buitenhof in Den Haag, but I prefer to follow some experienced advice...
