I think so, it's a DBFM contract. The concession is valued at € 80 million with maintenance until 2032. It's a relatively small project for a PPP. Most PPPs are either longer stretches, or much more expensive projects.

This brings the number of highway projects to be completed in 2016 from 3 to 4, right? 33% increase, but still a quiet year. :-(

To be completed in 2016;

* A1/A6 Diemen - Almere widening
* A2 Maastricht tunnel project
* A12 Ede - Arnhem widening
* N50 Ens - Emmeloord widening

It has been reported that a portion of the new A9 around Badhoevedorp could open within a couple of months, but only for traffic wanting to exit to A4, not yet for through traffic.

A4 Delft - Schiedam

The first weeks with a completed A4 between Delft and Schiedam indicate an average traffic volume of 63,000 vehicles per day.

Traffic volumes on A13 declined by 30,000 and traffic congestion went down considerably. It's not reported how much traffic has been reduced on secondary roads in the area.

The Rotterdamseweg/Schieweg on both banks of the Schie-River parallel to the A13 is a lot quieter at rush hour!

That's the older part passing Schiphol, I think Subi is referring to the newer Westrandweg section which carries roughly 35.000 vehicles per day.

environmental zones

A court has upheld Utrecht's decision to implement an environmental zone in the city. It bans diesel cars built before 1/1/2001. The court has noted that while positive effects on air quality have not been adequately demonstrated, the city has the right to introduce an environmental zone. The city of Rotterdam is also introducing an environmental zone similar to Utrecht.

Wouldn't it be a idea for the Netherlands (and other countries for that matter) to use the same TV plaquettes that the Germans are using for entry into cities? They only cost about 5 euros and it'll keep the dirt away from city centres everywhere.

Will it ban scooters that pollute more than older cars as well?

I feel like scooters are on there way out anyway. You see less and less youth on scooters. But it might be just me, but I only see pizza-couriers and lower-class 50+'ers.

Scooters are a major problem. Their number doubled since 2000 and still a large share have dirty two-stroke engines or are inefficiently limited, creating outrageous emissions. Two-stroke mopeds may emit 1000 - 2700 times (!!!) as much as a delivery van.

It's mind-boggling how they make a big deal out of diesel cars not meeting euro 6 standards, while we have massive amounts of mopeds emitting incredible amounts of particles and other pollutants, right in the face of cyclists. It is estimated that by 2020, mopeds emit more pollutants than all other traffic combined in Amsterdam.

In my opinion, they should pass a law outlawing gasoline mopeds in, say, 7 or 10 years, and disallowing the sales of any new non-electric moped as of now. The aim should be a 100% electrical fleet of 2-wheeled vehicles.

In 2018 Amsterdam wants to ban scooters made before 2011. Source

Opponents say that this is unfair as some of the cleanest 2010 scooters would be banned and a dirty 2011 one would not.

You are probably right that pollution standards are better indicators than age of vehicle.

Yeah I agree. This is a solution proposed by clueless politicians. We need some real solutions. It can't be that hard to implement a policy where gas-powered scooters are phased out in favor of e-scooters and e-bikes.

Yesterday, I read an article in the Financial Times that mentioned innovative Taiwenese e-scooter company Gogoro has chosen Amsterdam as its European HQ. They mentioned the absence of a domestic car-industry (and lobby), the short commutes and the infrastructure as key reasons why they think their products would do well here. The potential is there, the market wants it... What are politicians waiting for?

Just kick the damn scooters out of bike lanes, and that'll do it

If the markets want then they will just buy. Why does government need to do anything?

I think before the government goes out and destroys people's capital investments (e.g. scooter equipment) we should at least establish that there is a problem - TTBOMK air quality in NL is just fine, so why do anything?
