A15 Botlek Bridge

It is open to traffic!

80 km/h though. It was planned with 100 km/h in the environmental studies.

Why is the speed limit revised? Is it only temporary until the end of the construction works?

This is indeed the case. When the roadworks are finished it will be 100km/h as planned.

Typical that the 80 km/h limit is applied directly ON the bridge, where there are no roadworks to be seen ( at least not on above pic) ?

And the first bridge malfunction already occurred today... A motorist hit one of the gates so they didn't open properly.

Bridge malfunctions are a major topic in Spijkenisse, as their only other link to Rotterdam, the Spijkenisse Bridge, has frequent malfunctions. People are fed up with it.

Looks awesome. How long did it take to be completed (studies, actual works, etc) ?
Meanwhile in Antwerp we re still debatting the Oosterweelverbinding when people are losing hours daily in traffic jams.

If only our infrastructure could match 75% of yours lol.

I don't understand why there is still a gap between Spijkenisse and Nieuw-Beijerland, without a bridge or tunnel.

N315, Doetinchem

A new part of the eastern ring road of the city of Doetinchem opened to traffic today. It is part of N315 and allows quicker access to the A18 motorway from Zelhem. It's a regular two-lane urban arterial.

N35 Salland-Twente Tunnel, Nijverdal

The Salland-Twente Tunnel in Nijverdal will finally open to traffic on Saturday 29 August.

The tunnel project was a combination of a road and rail tunnel. The rail tube already opened to traffic in April 2013. The road tube was delayed by IT problems. Opening was originally planned in late 2012, but they changed the design during construction to comply with the new tunnel law. The opening date was then postponed to 2014, late 2014 and now late August 2015. Construction took six years, which is much longer than most road projects in the Netherlands, which typically take 2 - 3 years.

I stitched this satellite view together of the N35 tunnel.

This project looks an enormous waste of money, to be honest. The railway should have got grade-separated with viaducts or short trenches on roads, and the road should have been replaced with a bypass. The rest of the money would had been much useful upgrading N35.

I agree. But the choices have been made, and not much we can do about it now. The opening should bring quite a relieve on the current traffic situation I guess.

Knooppunt Holendrecht

The Holendrecht motorway interchange (A2/A9) near Amsterdam. It took some time to stitch this together.

Yes, finally some decent imagery that is not dated 2005 like Google Earth

The PDOK viewer imagery seems to be dated 2014.

Is there any plans for changes on old stretch of N35?
There is very unusual bicycle solution for Netherlands - sidewalk + "fietsen toegestaan".
