First see, then I'll really believe that it's going to be there. It would be great if such a tunnel would come though. The situation as it is now is just horrible

Yeah traffic is quite bad in Maastricht. I've met the Maastricht traffic extensively in June 2007 when I was on holiday there for two weeks. I think it has more congestion than the 6 times larger nearby Ličge.

Also Koln and Basel have double-decked tunnels, but none of them 2x2x2.

Btw: Is A73 Venlo-Echt finished?

Yes, but there are many problems with the tunnels. Tunnels are only available with one lane per direction from monday to friday. Tunnels are closed in the weekends until further notice.

Because of testing and other stuff they have to do on the tunnel safety systems.

These tunnels are supposed to be the safest in Europe, but the main problem so far is height; several trucks already hit the roof of the tunnel and the tunnel's safety systems often detect overheight trucks with too much margin so people get stuck behind a closed tunnel all the time for nothing.

What a shame with these tunnels

-----------------

@ Verso: A2/3 Schweizerhalle gallery between exits 6 and 7. Isn't this double-decked?

I don't see how this is a double-deck tunnel.

Driving there i was under impression that this tunnel is double decked. But i saw these pictures and it transpires that i was totally wrong.

Ok, back to autosnelwegen.

Today is an extreme, because the weather is very bad (lots of wind, horizontal snow and rain)

No, it wasn't very busy at all.

ANWB expected 350 kilometers of traffic jam, but there was about 220 kilometers.

TomTom calculates more traffic jams, about 600 kilometers including non-motorways and they are usually above 1.000 kilometers of traffic jams on busy days.

This Friday's evening rushhour lasted quite long (it started before noon) but the peak was not very high.

I see, I never see the TomTom jams, so I thought it was the ANWB information. If it was the ANWB info it would have been quite busy.

It's beautiful, isn't it?
Until a few months ago, there were actually a few Poles living in my neighbourhood.

Haha, this rocks; which house is yours, Timon? Nice town.

You Poles call cobble stones "kostki"? It sounds similar to our word for bones. ("kosti", but kids say "kostke", or in dual (two bones) even "kostki" )
