Interesting to see the bare tubings in a road tunnel.

CNN (!) has an item on the construction of the A2 land tunnel in the city of Maastricht. The item is from january this year so not very recent. Nevertheless I thought it is worth sharing:

Zierikzee Blues

Zierikzee has always been prominently located on the signage in southwestern Netherlands. With a population of only 10,000 and not being on a major junction of national roads, some feel it has been overrepresented.

Zierikzee has been removed from the signs on A15 near Rotterdam because the A4 was completed to Bergen op Zoom, so this city is now a control city. However, there was apparently a significant (?) public outcry, enough for them to add Zierikzee to the signs again.

The town is somewhat of a focal point, indicating more than just the city, but most of Zeeland province.

Sign indicating Zierikzee over 100 kilometers away on A59. This is signed according to the depreciated 'remote focal point' concept, that the end point of the road is used as a control city. Poland does this as well. As A59 serves almost no cities of significance directly, west of 's-Hertogenbosch, Zierikzee was the only viable option.

It's good to see that more and more "autowegen" being constructed. A "Gelbe AutoStrasse" network linking smaller cities or links is very usefull!

It's not minor cities, but above sparsely populated regions that receive better access through the upgrade N-routes. But if your comment was driven by the opening of the N261 intersection, you should be aware that there was originally an actual motorway between Tilburg and Waalwijk.

Heerenveen, July 1997.



Unthinkable. No A32, the A7 being widened. I can't even remember that it was like this when I was a kid.

A15, Rotterdam

The westbound shoulder lane opened to traffic today on A15 from Spijkenisse to the Thomassen Tunnel near Rozenburg. It is part of the large A15 expansion project.

Because it was prohibitively expensive to widen the current A15 embankment through the port area, they decided to build a 'plus lane', a narrow lane on the left side. The speed limit is 80 km/h when the 'plus lane' is open to traffic. They wanted to preserve the regular right shoulder in case of emergencies (especially with all the chemical plants in the port).

It is the first new 'plus lane' in 3 years. They are usually not considered anymore due to their cost being similar to a regular new lane. But this was an exception.

The new map:

The eastbound shoulder lane is planned to be opened in August his year. Also the much bigger New Botlek Bridge will open soon, but most likely also in two phases.

You're right, it's an older map, I need to update it (A5 & A74 are missing as well).

I found this in De Volkskrant a while ago about the small adaptation to the Prins Claus intersection outside The Hague. A tiny change eliminated the need for weaving and got rid of a daily rush hour traffic jam. It was named after the guy who spotted it.

That was my suspect too, but maybe that's just the name of who made the drawing for De Volkskrant
