Wow. And, is it enough for the prognosticated traffic?

So, that means that the A9-A6 linking is dead!?

It has been put aside yes, and as soon as they start talking about it, the nimby's come and that delays everything.

Dream on. The current situation is the opposite.

I doubt it. Almere has a projected growth from 180.000 inhabitants to 350.000 inhabitants. Besides that, new developments around Amersfoort also add more traffic. I am still in favor of the A6-A9 link combined with road widening of the A1.

Actually the whole A1 needs widening.

How many km of at least 8-lane motorways are there in Randstad? I believe more than in any other European metropolitan area. Distances as such are small in the Netherlands though, and limited by the sea in the west. Damn, the London beltway is already 200 km, hmm..

Not a lot I believe, just a very small part of the A4 and a part of the A12, but Chris knows more about this...

Only a few kilometers are 8 laned or more. This include the A4 Badhoevedorp - Burgerveen, A12 Oudenrijn - Lunetten, A27 Lunetten - Rijnsweerd, A16 Terbregseplein - Ridderkerk, A15 Ridderkerk - Vaanplein, and some other stubs. Together less than 40 kilometers i think.

Ok, then I was obviously too impressed with those 10-lane highways you have.

Come on, we will have a 30 km 10-laned highway within 4 years.

The lenght of the rush hour will be shortened. Other then that there will be little improvement a few years after completion. Considering 50% of the outgoing people in Almere take the train each morning, much also depends on the train improvements such as 4 rails ...

and a metro towards from Almere Hout -> Pampus to Amsterdam North & Zaandam, which nobody else other then me has ever thought about. Should be combined with a regional road btw, from Almere Pampus to the A10 North.

Dude, do you know what kind of people are living in Almere Hout?

Btw, I don't think it would help that much. Most of the work locations are south of the Ij. 4 tracks between Weesp and Oostvaarders wouldn't be bad, though.

It's one of the reasons people tend to emigrate more, here. Actually, we already have one of the highest emigration rates in europe.

Most rich move to Belgium, to avoid the high taxes. Finally we found something against the overpopulation

I'd never move to Belgium. Nice people there, but the chaos doesn't attract me. I'd rather move to Germany, or maybe even take the giant step to move to scandinavia...
