it's a underpass under the canal/river...

what was the problem with a new bridge? was the old bridge a "draw bridge" (which would be a bottleneck on a motorway) or what?

a canal/river underpass compared to a normal bridge is extremely expensive...

They have a lot of aqueducts in Friesland province, because of the extensive leisure shipping. (sail yachts, motor boats etc). Even single lane provincial roads can feature aqueducts. During the summer season, when there is also a lot of recreational road traffic, normal roads can become congested.

Yesterday eve I drove back (my dad:P) from Drenthe to Amsterdam. We drove on a piece of highway, and on the other side of the road there was a weird sound barrier. I found them quite nice. I can't explain it to good in English so;

Het had zo'n grote betonnen overkapping. Schuin omhoog. Het ging ook de bocht om, zeer mooi om te zien. Weet jij misschien waar dit is Chriszwolle?

That's the half covered soundbarrier of Zeist. It roughly covers over one direction (eastbound). But why did you drove from Drenthe to Hoofddorp via Utrecht? I would take the A1 towards Amsterdam and then the A9.

^Don't know. My dad drove. I remember going on the A9 for a long time though.

He drives a lot so he knows almost the whole NL. Mostly the bussy parts. But he followed the tomtom and when we arrived in Utrecht he drove on his own.

We also went through Zwolle. It looks impressive if you drive on that highway with all the sound barriers and then the tall building plopping up!

Some new aerials, the junctions are located mostly around Amsterdam & haarlem:

Zaandam, A7xA8


Watergraafsmeer, A1xA10


This one is rather odd, these three separate junctions are very close together and are considered to be one big junction:

Rottepolderplein, A9xA205 (south-eastern part)


Rottepolderplein A205xN205 (south-western part)


Rottepolderplein, A9xA200 (northern part)


Raasdorp, A5xA9, the A5 coming from the south (north in this picture) will be extended towards Amsterdam within a few years.


De Nieuwe Meer, A4xA10


IJmuiden, A22xA208


Beverwijk, A9xA22


Princeville, A16xA58. located near Breda:



Eastern part of Lunetten near Utrecht, A12xA27


Exit Schiphol Airport on the A4:

That Schiphol picture has been posted before here. That curve is really way too sharp.

About 1½ month ago I heard that some hurricane (forgot it's name) had caused lots of flooding in Harlingen, Texas

I used to pronounce it the German way - Tswolle.

Ho hou, seems that Zwolle has a bit of traffic problems at the moment! Where do you dig up these maps Chris?

Traffic jam resources are much more up-to-date and accurate than in other countries. This is all real time from sensors in the pavement. Yellow lines represent slow traffic (below 50km/h or 30 mph) and red lines represent jammed traffic (stopped or nearly stopped in general).

By the way, earlier this afternoon, there was a 130 minute delay on the A32-A28 towards Zwolle, an accident closed down all southbound lanes.
