I was wondering if it's worse in some countries than in others, or if it's pretty much a universal problem and just doesn't get the same media attention.

1 week (one), this new anti ghost driver installation was old, before the first car plunged into it.! Sunday at 17:25 a woman lost 3 tires on her car, and got a ticket from the police. So that´s a good start.

Ah Nørre Aaby. I've used that exit a few times. What's wrong is that there is no divided entrance for the motorway.

If people are stupid enough to enter the Motorvej in the wrong direction, these kind of entrances are probably the most likely candidates...

Fine, but almost all such junctions are not divided. And still the lanes split before entering the motorway, so you have to either not see any signs or be utterly stupid.

I agree with Chris. It is a very rare/odd junction the one at Nørr Aaby. First of all since it is undivided, which is rather rare in Denmark, and only found on older motorways like this one, and secondly bescause of the length of exit/access road to the motorway. As can be seen at the sign on the picture the length of the undivided entrance road is approx. 500 m.

It is no surprise that it happened at this particular junction.

By the way, this junction will probably be rebuild as the E20 motorway at this place will be widened to 3+3 over the next 5 years.

Motorring 3, København (Copenhagen)

On December 31st, 2010, the 3rd lane on Motorring 3 between Roskildevej and Slotsherrensvej (3.3 km) will be opened to traffic, as a provisional 3rd lane. This is the last section of the Motorring 3 (København bypass) to be widened. The opening of the 3rd lane is one year ahead of schedule, but a temporary 80 km/h limit will remain in place untill all median work has been completed by the summer of 2011, after which a 110 km/h limit will be introduced on this section.

There was before at the this part of the motorway in Copenhagen catenary lightning similar to what they have at many motorways in Netherlands and the UK. But in Copenhagen it was high pressure sodium lights and in Netherlands and the UK they have low pressure sodium lights. But they take of that old catenary lightning from that motorways around Copenhagen now.

By the way, I don't think Denmark never had any low pressure sodium lights.

My experience is that these yellow lines are slow traffic due to snow... you know, 50 - 70 km/h. This can still generate quite some delay if you travel long distances, but isn't really a traffic jam. The red lines are serious congestion with a lot of delays. Dark-red is complete standstill with delays often in the hours if over longer distances.

It is just like that.. 100km of slow traffic (kolding-Århus) on a motorway can be pretty annoying....

I prefer alternative D. C would have more environmental impact, while D does the best job of guiding through traffic to northwestern Jylland outside of Holstebro. Alternative A would simply dump all traffic on the Holstebro street network.

Personally I guess, the local politicians will demand the C solution, perhaps combined with the D solution north of Måbjerg and with a tunnel under Storåen (Grand river).

The D solution simply is to far away from Holstebro, and the local politicians wants it to be a part, of the future industry areas of Holstebro.

Interesting to see congestions on the tollbridge "Stora Bält". What is the number of cars passing daily ? is it 20.000?

Also interesting: red marks on the road to Tårnby/Kastrup. Is it all because of all traffic going to Kastrup Airport ?

Note that you don't need high traffic volumes to get lengthy delays during snow storms. That's also why you can see so much delays on rural motorways.

The D solution simply is to far away from Holstebro, and the local politicians wants it to be a part, of the future industry areas of Holstebro.

In the end it will be national politicians who will decide which option/alignment to go for. In a political agreement from December 2010 between the government and the opposition, where it was decided to go ahead with EIA/detailed alignment study, it was stated that the EIA shall focus on option B. Alignment/Option B is motorway Herning-Holstebro and widening of existing ringroad to 2+2 with level crossing/signals.

The reason for focusing on option B is that this combination has the highest internal rate of return, the second lowest construction cost and that it will have sufficient capacity. By 2020 the option B motorway is forecasted to have an AADT of 19.000-22.000. Options C-E will only have an AADT of 11.000-16.000 east of Holstebro (2020).

The report included a couple of interesting information. First that the motorway is planned to be ready in 2018. Secondly, that what has been widely claimed by some Danish Press reports in recent months, that there is a no need for the motorway, and that it is only a project aiming at silencing critical voices in Northwestern Jutland, is not justified. The report states that the current 1+1 road in peak hours will reach 79-98% of theoretical capacity in 2020 (70% is deemed emerging congestion and 90% is critical congestion), and that a 2+1 expressway will reach 73-82% capacity in peak hours in 2020.

The reasoning for the motorway might very well be in order to please the electorate in Holstebro, however the report shows that there is a need, and that neither the current road or an 2+1 expressway can cope with the traffic.
