A windstorm affecting the Netherlands this afternoon has claimed its first victim at the Van Brienenoord Bridge (A16) in Rotterdam.



And another one down at N302 Lelystad - Enkhuizen.



edit: N201 at Hoofddorp:


Another one. Notice these are all the same truck types, large but very light volume trucks with single axle trailers.


A9 at Aalsmeer:


A16 Moerdijk Bridge:

That last one is just plain stupidity... Crossing a major dyke with a empty truck in these kind of winds..

Can you get fined for this stupidity?

Trucks are bastards, we need more freight trains and river boats so the rest of us can keep on driving.

When I look at a map of Rotterdam area... I think of so many new/enlarged bridge and tunnel possibilities.

The access to Krimpen a/d IJssel is atrocious.

A15 Ridderkerk - Papendrecht

A15 is one of the few remaining motorways in the Netherlands with old-school signage and catenary lighting. The signs are illuminated from below, this was standard for overhead signage in the 1970s. Most are now replaced. Catenary lighting is also phased out pretty quickly.

Those pics of the A15 somehow remind me of the old A2.

A1/A6 Diemen - Almere

The final reconstruction works of the A1/A6 expansion will be accelerated.

Originally, the deadline for the A1/A6 project was 2020. But it will be completed much sooner. The final reconstruction works at the Muiderberg interchange (A1/A6) was planned for November 2017, however it has been moved up to July 2017.

There is still some major work ahead, several bridges need to be built. The whole configuration of the interchange will be modified. Presently, there are three exit lanes on the right to A6. After reconstruction, traffic to A6 will continue on the three left lanes, flipping the present layout. This will likely result in some 'getting used to congestion'.

They also need to construct the reversible lane bridges. The reversible lanes are currently not yet in operation. The original reversible lanes were decommissioned last year when the new alignment of A1 at Muiden opened to traffic with a much greater capacity (2x5 lanes).

The Muiderberg motorway interchange (A1/A6):


In addition, the westbound A1-A9 connection at the Diemen motorway interchange will open to traffic on 13 March. Here, traffic from A1 to A9 will cross the new Muiden Bridge across the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal, so the old Diemen interchange can move into its final reconstruction phase. This means the main traffic flow from A1 to A9 will not use the old two-lane loop, but a much more capacious 4 lane bypass.

A20 roundabout

Google updated its imagery in a portion in western Netherlands with 23 August 2016 imagery. It includes the ginormous roundabout at the A20 terminus. N213 and N223 connect to A20. It is part of a complex with three such roundabouts.

De verdiepte ligging wordt 2 kilometer lang! Dat is hier al goed te zien by N31 Harlingen, on Flickr

N31 will run under the Van Harinxma Canal via an aquaduct.

A9 Amsterdam

Eastbound A9 is closed this weekend to reconstruct the motorway.

There is a two-lane carriageway of A9 that runs straight through the tunnel construction zone. They are behind schedule on the tunnel, and to accelerate the project, the carriageway will become a construction zone. To compensate for the loss of 2 lanes, they will construct an additional lane on the other carriageway of A9. The new lane is constructed during two weekends. A9 will also be closed next weekend for this work.

From 13 March, all traffic will use the regular carriageway - with an additional lane.

The carriageway on the lower part of the collage will be taken out of traffic from 13 March. You can see construction works on the additional lane on the upper left photo:


Notice the huge amount of cranes:

A12 De Meern

The De Meern exit of A12, circa 1939. De Meern is presently a suburban district of Utrecht.



Sign detail. The text above Utrecht (to the right) says: 'only for motor vehicles'.

A12 Utrecht

Well, it changed quite a bit. There is presently a 55 meter wide bridge with eight through lanes and 2 exit lanes at this location. 7 lanes pass under A12.

Here's a circa 1939 photo of the A12 bridge across the Vaartse Rijn canal in Utrecht. It's about 800 meters east of the better known Galecopper Bridge. There is presently a 13 lane bridge at this location, with plans to add two more lanes.
