nottice also different arrows on those signs with capital letters. maybe they've been changing signage, what do you think? btw, i like those with capital letters more than other ones, they are just more clear (this one really smells like confusing french signs

What's the difference between 'very nice' and 'great'?

A nice motorway! I see the the signage is a mix of French style(the fonts and the shapes etc..) and German style (the colour of the non-motorway signs.)

For a country its size, Luxembourg appears to have an impressively extensive motorway network. And of high quality, too.

Yes, it's almost perfect if you forget the North of the country which is a true highway desert. I guess in 20 years , they can go to somewhere (Clerveaux) with A7.

Extending the A7 all the way to Belgium would be cool. That and completing the Luxembourg ringroad.

Wasser- = water
-billig: comes from Latin "Biliacum" which was the name of that town during the Roman Empire.

Wasserbillig:


The ending "-acum" is Gaulish and means "place of". The pronunciation of this ending evolved over time throughout the territory of the ancient Gaul, and is nowadays pronounced differently depending on French (and Wallonian/Luxembourgian/Swiss) regions. In the Paris area, "Biliacum" would have become "Billy", in southwest France "Biliacum" would have become "Billiac", in the lower Loire Valley it would have becomme "Billé", in Auvergne it would have become "Billat", in Romance-speaking northeastern France it would have become "Billey", in the region of Lyon it would have become "Billeux", in Alsace it would have become "Billach", etc.

This is how the ending "-acum" is now pronounced depending on regions. You can see that the "-ig" ending happens in the Germanic-speaking part of Lorraine (and hence also in Luxembourg).

As far as I know, there are plans/construction to complete the A7 near Luxembourg City, but there are no direct plans to complete A7 all the way to the Belgian E42.

I also don't think a full ringroad of Luxembourg City is necessary. It's not a world city we're talking about, but a city with a population of only 90,000.
