I love Dutch roads, they are the best I've seen anywhere in the world.
These are some nice videos:

Yeah, just one bad thing here; numbers ranging from 400 - 999 are very rarely signed.

So you see a temporary road construction sign; N746 closed. follow detour. But nobody except the numberfreaks knows where this road is, because it is not signed.

Check this out!

On holidays, truck traffic is not allowed in Germany. So hundreds of truckers drive towards the border and park their trucks for miles on the shoulder.
Here are some pics;

Here's a video of this stretch, which my mate and i made. (he made the video, i did the pictures) of this truck-phenomenon near the German-Dutch border.

Notice the bad road surface however this is only like 15 years old. The German A30 has an even worse roadsurface.

VIDEO 61MB, Rapidshare

oh yeah, the video includes some nice music, so the video is not boring to watch

The list is not so impressive. Most work is finally done on the A2 which is about to be or is in progress of being widend for most of its length;

A2
Jct Holendrecht - Jct Oudenrijn 2x5 lanes (now 2x3)
Jct Oudenrijn - Jct Everdingen 2x4 lanes (now 3+4)
Jct Everdingen - Jct Deil 2x4 lanes (now 2x2)
Jct Empel - Jct Vught 4x2 lanes (now 2x3)
Jct Batadorp - Jct Leenderheide 2+3+3+2 lanes (now 2x3)

There is also a project on the A4 motorway just north of Leiden, where a second aquaduct is being constructed, since the first one is only 2x2 lanes withoud shoulders (should be 2x4 lanes)

And then there are a few construction sites;

A35 Almelo - Wierden (7km or so)
A37 Jct Holsloot - German border 16km (upgrade of the old N37)
A73 Venlo - A2 complete new motorway, some 35km.

However, these new motorways are all outside the heavy congested Randstad metropolis. No new construction or other widening is approved yet.

For those interested, here are 3 render-video's of what the future A2 will look like (turning off your speakers is strongly recommended, unless you like elevator tunes )
