NL is practically Euro-Texas with the oil industry and giant highways
Just the taxes not the same

N356 Drachten - Dokkum

The first 2.8 km of 'De Centrale As', the N356 expressway from Drachten to Dokkum, opened to traffic this morning. It is opened with 2x2 lanes, but acts as a detour route because the old route will be downgraded. As agricultural vehicles are temporarily allowed during reconstruction of the old road, the speed limit is 70 km/h

The expressway is open to traffic from the interchange near Broeksterwâld to the Boppewei roundabout near De Westereen.

If I spent most of my time in the basement I wouldn't care about canals or the city. But when I look at most canals I see space that could be used for roads or parking. Especially in 020, ugh, but guess it serves a tourist function there.

just get Amphicar and use them

I was cleaning some things in my desk and I found a kwartje from 1987, and I'm drinking a Heineken, if only I had some wooden shoes

In my opinion, the Netherlands are more comparable with New Jersey.

he has a point though, it looks kind of like New Jersey if you got rid of all the canals. NJ has plenty of huge highways and oil refineries also.
even the ugly industrial areas of NJ look kind of like Rotterdam
and of course historic Dutch area of North America was more or less around there (well more in New York)

A4 Leiden - Den Haag 2x4

The Council of State has dismissed the single appeal against the widening of A4 between Leiden and Den Haag (Leidschendam interchange). The A4 will be widened from 2x3 to 2x4 lanes along this stretch. It will coincide with the new Rijnland Route interchange just south of Leiden and feed into the local/express setup near Leiden.

Due to other priorities the widening is planned for 2020. It is a cheap widening in the median.



Present-day A4:

A50, Apeldoorn

There is a viewing tower located at the Apeldoorn exit along A50. It is basically an advertising tower, but they added a viewing platform. As the platform is below the top of the tower, the view is not that great, but it allows for some photos.

A1 'Warschauer Allee'

A video of A1 in eastern Netherlands, from Apeldoorn to Hengelo. The motorway is nicknamed the 'Warschauer Allee' (like A2 in Germany) due to the high volume of trucks. The right lane is often loaded with trucks. Although there are many trucks from Poland, the foreign trucks are very diverse, mostly from central / eastern Europe. It carries a lot of trucks from Russia as well.

A1/A28 Hoevelaken motorway interchange

The updated design of the Hoevelaken motorway interchange near Amersfoort was unveiled today.

It is an improvement over the previous design. The Hoevelaken exit will be accessible from all directions, and another turbine connector will be added.

There will be one direct connector (Amsterdam > Zwolle) and two turbine connectors (Apeldoorn > Utrecht & Utrecht > Amsterdam), leaving just a single loop ramp (Zwolle > Apeldoorn) as that route carries the least traffic.

Construction is planned for 2019-2024. It also includes the widening of nearly 40 kilometers of A1 and A28 to 2x4 lanes.

N46 Groningen

I made a video of N46 (and N7) around Groningen. They form the eastern and southern ring road. N46 was recently reconstructed to an expressway with interchanges. The finishing touches remain to be done, but it's a job well done.

Depends on which areas in nl you would compare, but I would certainly go for the US north east. Culturally then I would rather compare texas to the eastern europe.

Construction of the shoulder lanes started today. They will be operational before the winter. The project cost is € 25 million and includes a complete repaving of A7. Paving will be done during the night in September and October. A noise barrier along A8 will be moved for the construction of an SOS bay. There will be a short 90 km/h work zone at that location.

There will be 2x2 lanes, 4 new interchanges. The A2 and A50 interchanges will remain with traffic lights. The planned completion date is November 2017, but Noord-Brabant province has hinted the new capacity may become available in 2016.

Large-scale construction started today. They will first construct new parallel roads and bike paths. Several roads will be realigned near Berlicum, and a small river will be moved.

Construction will be done chiefly between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. during work days. Only works with large traffic impact will be done during weekends and nights.

Veghel is a major logistics hub so good capacity is increased.

How will the interchanges look? Any freeflow between N273 and N270 roads?
