Isn't the A73 increase caused by the opening of the A74? Before that traffic to the German A61 needed to use the A67 and the Klagenfurtlaan.

Both the A73 and A74 opening contributed to the high volume of traffic across the Meuse in Venlo. The A73 corridor between Venlo and Roermond has seen significant traffic growth over the past 4-5 years, it opened in 2007-2008 and present day traffic volumes are already approaching or exceeding 50,000 vehicles per day.

A traffic volume of near 100,000 vehicles at the Meuse Bridge was anticipated in the EIA of A74 though.

The A74 carried 6.000 more vehicles in 2016 compared to 2014, the A73 near Venlo carried 7-13.000 more vehicles compared to 2014. Even before the A74 was completed (completed 2013, data 2011) the A73 west of Venlo already carried 50-60.000 vehicles per day.

A9 Badhoevedorp

After 50 years of service, A9 through the town of Badhoevedorp has been decommissioned last night. At 11 p.m., A9 was shut down to create the final connections to the new A9 outside of Badhoevedorp, which will open Monday morning at 5 a.m.

A9 through Badhoevedorp opened to traffic on 8 August 1967, as part of a 10 kilometer segment that opened from Aalsmeer to Haarlem. It has seen significant traffic growth, exceeding 100,000 vehicles per day. It became a notorious bottleneck, as well as a source of noise pollution. They opened a shoulder lane through Badhoevedorp in 2011, but only for north/westbound traffic. Traffic congestion on this stretch was reduced by 92% after the shoulder lane opened.

The new A9 around Badhoevedorp features 2x3 lanes.

That interchange is quite interesting. In geometric terms it's basically a clovermill, but skewed, with one of the loops relocated.

Also, what's happening to the old A9?

That seems a bit dramatic. If the current road is already above 100,000 AADT it may not be long until the six lane bypass is overloaded.

The reason the bypass was built was because it cut right through the middle of the village of Badhoevedorp. The widening could have technically been done on the older section, but replacing it around the village was seen as a much better option, mainly for quality of life, more space and far less construction issues (widening the original road through Badhoevedorp would have caused a lot of issues because a reduction of capacity would have pretty much been unavoidable whilst also being unacceptable.
Though I agree that 2x4 would have been better.

Some pictures of the old A9 through Badhoevedorp (note that the southbound direction (bottom picture) has been closed for a couple of months already), made by the same person that made the pictures Chris posted above. Some more pics can be found here.

I agree, especially with A5 also nearing capacity (close to 80,000 vehicles per day on four lanes). And to think that A5 was originally planned as a super two as recent as the 1990s.

Earlier plans called for a spatial reservation for eight lanes on A9, but it doesn't look like it was realized in the final product.

A2 Maastricht

The final connections to and from the King Willem-Alexander Tunnel in Maastricht open to traffic today. They include the connectors and ramps at the Maastricht-Centrum Zuid interchange (formerly the Europaplein interchange).

This means that the old N2 through the city has now been decommissioned after 58 years of being in use since it was widened to four lanes in 1959 and became part of the north-south corridor A2.

A9 Badhoevedorp

The new and old A9 at the Badhoevedorp interchange (A4/A9). Traffic on A9 can only reach A4 today, tomorrow they can continue straight ahead to Haarlem.

Badhoevedorp once again sleeps better thanks to that bypass. No matter how but the bypass is better in all senses. Demolish and develop that old stretch!
