N627 Eijsden (NL) - Battice (B)

Some driving in Eastern Belgium, from Eijsden (NL) to Battice near the E40/E42. This is the N627.

1. Entering Belgium. Bilingual signs (looks quite new)
[IMG]http://i42.************/2vc830j.jpg[/IMG]

2. Speed limits sign. Jpeter must like this.
[IMG]http://i43.************/2igfz80.jpg[/IMG]

3. 's-Gravenvoeren is a exclave of Flandres surrounded by Wallonia and the Netherlands I believe.
[IMG]http://i43.************/257q70h.jpg[/IMG]

4. This road can be used to bypass the E25/E40 near Liège when travelling to E42 or Aachen from NL.
[IMG]http://i44.************/2cet6y9.jpg[/IMG]

5. We're heading for Verviers.
[IMG]http://i40.************/adc0ow.jpg[/IMG]

6. Quite an important railway line for freight trains from Antwerp to the Ruhr area in Germany.
[IMG]http://i41.************/33ome8p.jpg[/IMG]

7. The road is okay here.
[IMG]http://i41.************/2il0n7t.jpg[/IMG]

8. Another problem in Belgium; semi-urbanized areas along roads, called "lintbebouwing" in Dutch.
[IMG]http://i44.************/4t99ic.jpg[/IMG]

9. View on the Netherlands.
[IMG]http://i42.************/2r46ik6.jpg[/IMG]

10. Minor intersection.
[IMG]http://i42.************/zjw3l1.jpg[/IMG]

11. Another thing you almost never see in the Netherlands; above ground telephone/electricity lines.
[IMG]http://i44.************/23s641z.jpg[/IMG]

12. This part desperatly needed repaving.
[IMG]http://i44.************/kf36hl.jpg[/IMG]

13. The edges are almost gravel, but get new pavement.
[IMG]http://i41.************/24lkmcp.jpg[/IMG]

14. I'm not sure what this Val-Dieu thing is. Something touristicky?
[IMG]http://i39.************/1znvcyr.jpg[/IMG]

15. Typical Wallonia; bad pavement and homes you doubt if anybody is living in...
[IMG]http://i42.************/2w5silx.jpg[/IMG]

16. Good, new pavement.
[IMG]http://i44.************/ulw6x.jpg[/IMG]

17. Commercial strip.
[IMG]http://i44.************/11gpu03.jpg[/IMG]

18. Intersection with N3.
[IMG]http://i40.************/2r3axc2.jpg[/IMG]

19. We're heading for Verviers.
[IMG]http://i40.************/3340zg3.jpg[/IMG]

20. € 1,41 for gasoline in 2007. That's 30 cents lower now. Diesel didn't drop that much.
[IMG]http://i39.************/30wkqxe.jpg[/IMG]

21. This roundabout gives access to the E42 and E40 motorways.
[IMG]http://i43.************/23i6w7s.jpg[/IMG]

That's it

Bonus:

Highway to Hell (N67 Eupen - Monschau). This road was indeed fully dramatic

I also made a video of this road:

Why is it called "highway to hell"? Because of the bad pavement?

So Chris, when are you gonna post some pics of the E411 or the E25? Or do you only like to post pics of bad Belgian highways? Seems like you're a bit obsessed with the Liège region...

E25 Liège - Bastogne

As requested by popular demand ( ) some E25 pictures, travelling southbound. Taken in 2006.

1. Entering the Liège area on E25 South
[IMG]http://i44.************/4l4sxw.jpg[/IMG]

2. Nearing the Cheratte impossible interchange.
[IMG]http://i40.************/r1z8gk.jpg[/IMG]

3. Entering E40/E42/E25 West across the river Meuse.
[IMG]http://i43.************/11hs9bb.jpg[/IMG]

4. Nearing the Hermée exit.
[IMG]http://i40.************/2e330yd.jpg[/IMG]

5. Interchange with the E313. Anvers = Antwerpen.
[IMG]http://i40.************/33y4b9w.jpg[/IMG]

6. Mediocre pavement. Bumpy from time to time, but not too bad.
[IMG]http://i41.************/2qduzqp.jpg[/IMG]

7. Oh, well...
[IMG]http://i44.************/316nbd3.jpg[/IMG]

8. Hasselt and Anvers are both in Flandres.
[IMG]http://i39.************/105cdo0.jpg[/IMG]

9. E313 interchanges twice. It has two legs near Liège. The Citadelle gives a great view on the city by the way.
[IMG]http://i42.************/15owikk.jpg[/IMG]

10. The Vottem interchange.
[IMG]http://i44.************/9bhavb.jpg[/IMG]

to be continued...

[IMG]http://i44.************/xnywle.jpg[/IMG]

13. Man alive!
[IMG]http://i40.************/op8p4.jpg[/IMG]

14. Alleur exit.
[IMG]http://i44.************/e6ygp2.jpg[/IMG]

15. We go left.
[IMG]http://i44.************/w7klkp.jpg[/IMG]

16. Going to be Paris would be cool too...
[IMG]http://i42.************/2wgb28p.jpg[/IMG]

17. At the split.
[IMG]http://i39.************/avgzue.jpg[/IMG]

18. Local exit
[IMG]http://i43.************/ay7mld.jpg[/IMG]

19. My calculator (also called: pocket Japanese) has this one too
[IMG]http://i41.************/2it4ttz.jpg[/IMG]

20. Funny: my aunt is named "Ans". Common Dutch name for somewhat older people.

I'll upload more later, because I'm on an unstable wireless connection.

Lesson one: never buy wireless internet junk. (thank god it's temporary).

New highway in Brabant Wallon (south of Brussels). Sorry for the small pics, but you get an idea...













Wallonia is going to invest a lot in road maintenance in the coming years.
