It's gotta come from somewhere...

They could lower taxes on driving but then the income tax would go up and we'd all be b!tching about that.

Indeed. Also, there have been a lot of multi-billion euro investments in the road infrastructure in the last years, so a lot comes back to the drivers.

Plus, it's also used as a tool to get people to use the public transport as that is competitive in comparison this way. If this is the way to do that is of-course a political question.

The expenditures on roads is only a small amount of the tax revenue. It is less than 20%.

N434 Rijnland Route, Leiden

Constructor Comol5 begins with the construction of the 'Rijnland Route' expressway this month. The Rijnland Route is a four lane expressway with a bored tunnel south of Leiden, it will connect A4 and A44.

They will start with the construction of temporary access roads and work sites. To reduce truck traffic to the construction site, sand will be transported mostly by ship. They will also cut trees and brush. The first major works will be the demolition of the bus bridge across the Oude Rijn River. It is in the way of the expanded A44 bridge.

The tree cutting may be delayed by an appeal against the permit, a preliminary injunction has been asked at the Council of State. It only concerns the portion that is in Leiden municipality. It is unlikely to cause any delays to the project.

A12

A12 Den Haag - Gouda will be closed this coming weekend to install the first beams for a massive project: the Bleizo (Bleiswijk-Zoetermeer) station that will be built on a bridge on top of the motorway. A unique project.

This weekend they will install 31 beams with a length of 61 meters each. Rijkswaterstaat uses the closure to do some maintenance works on A12.

The most boring of sleeper towns, worse then Almere even, as James May would say about the Nurburgring: BOMB IT .

It's still a smart Randstadrail extention though, just one bridge extra and you cut Zoetermeer-Utrecht times bij 30min for some people.

A6/A7 Knooppunt Joure

A photo of the new Joure motorway interchange. It is one of the few - if not the only - 'German style' construction zone in the Netherlands.

And it's not even the worst the Netherlands has had on its signage. I remind myself the postal codes which were used for the A10 in Amsterdam. Abracadabra!

Rotterdamsebaan, The Hague

The tunnel boring machine for the N62 Sluiskil Tunnel in Zeeland is being refurbished at Herrenknecht in Schwanau, Germany. They have rebuilt the machine and replaced the cutting head. It will soon be shipped to the Netherlands to start the construction of the Victory Boogie-Woogie Tunnel in The Hague.

Fun decor on the TBM blades. A shame De Stijl 100 jaar celebrations are coming to an end though...

A2 Het Vonderen - Kerensheide

The draft plan approval for the A2 expansion in Limburg province has been signed yesterday.

The plan is to widen A2 from four to six lanes from Het Vonderen (A73) to Kerensheide (A76). This section of A2 has shoulder lanes, the average traffic is approximately 100,000 vehicles per day on most sections.

The expansion is not just a simple outward widening, they will build an asymetric expansion to address 1950s design deficiencies.

The project is budgeted for 2022-2025. There is no urgent need to do this as fast as possible, the shoulder lanes keep traffic moving.
