N31 Aquaduct Langdeel

N31 was widened to a four-lane expressway from Leeuwarden to Drachten in 2007. An important structure is the 'Aquaduct Langdeel', a structure that carries a canal over N31.

The concrete used in the pillars is of inferior quality. They reportedly dropped steel wiring that keeps the rebar together into the concrete, reducing its quality. They already did repairs on it in 2013, 2014 and now again this year.

They will jack the entire structure up by 4 mm and replace the faulty concrete. It was built as a PPP project, so there is no cost incurred to taxpayers.

Aquaduct Langdeel:

How much total equivalent weight does an acquaduct carry when no boats are using it? How tick is the main bowl shaped wall? Do they put some floor material or cover or does water reach straight on the concrete?

The weight is always the same unless you have a sunken boat.

A28 / N309 't Harde

The bridge replacement along A28 at the 't Harde exit is in full swing. The 1960s bridges are replaced to make way for a wider N309.

The bridge replacement requires 6 weeks for each span.



Lots of photos: http://www.nwvfoto.nl/diversen/sloop...-in-volle-gang

A12 Ede - Arnhem

Some before & after photos of the A12 widening project between Ede and the Grijsoord motorway interchange near Arnhem.

In januari 2015 zag het er bij de aansluiting Wageningen nog zo uit:

N62 Sloeweg, Zeeland

The 'Sloeweg' upgrade has been completed on 30 June. They expanded the two-lane road to a four-lane expressway with a new interchange at 's-Heerenhoek. In addition, they built a new motorway interchange with A58, which is known as knooppunt Stelleplas.



The project started in August 2014, however they quickly found out the design they made was much more expensive than the allocated budget, so works were stopped and the project was reconsidered. At that time there were some early earthworks at the N254 interchange and considerable progress at the A58 interchange.

They decided to continue the four-laning of N62, but construct the N254 interchange at a later time. The twinning of 5.3 kilometers of N62 was basically built in one year, between mid-2015 and mid-2016. The A58 interchange (knooppunt Stelleplas) opened on 10 October 2015. The four-laning was completed on 30 June 2016.

The N62-N254 intersection is now the only at-grade intersection between Goes and Terneuzen. They still plan to build a proper interchange here, the majority of the States-Provincial want to build a full interchange with direct connectors (compact half stack interchange), but they have yet to allocate additional funding for it.

Those funds may be a long time coming. First they have to figure out how on Earth they're gonna save the regional utilities company Delta which also happens to own the only nuclear power plant in the country near Borssele.

Money is in short supply down there.

Zeeland could embrace accelerated growth, building a new city for pop 200.000 or so. That would bring in a Lot of money. Think of something as a satellite town to Rotterdam like Almere is to Amsterdam. However schowen or goieree-flakkee are better suited islands for that purpose.

There are no grounds to suppose that's feasible. Zeeuws-Vlaanderen has actively been trying to lure Belgians. This should, on paper, be easy because property prices are lower than they are across the border and so are general living expenses (utilities, groceries). And yet, few people take the plunge.

Distance is a major factor; people don't generally like to move but when they do, they tend to move closer to work, not further away.

You always seem to think like it's still the 1960s.

N434 Rijnland Route, Leiden

The last two appeals against the Rijnland Route project were dismissed by the Council of State today. This means that all legal hurdles to construct the A4-A44 expressway link near Leiden have been taken.
