There isn't concensus about. Germany and Italy are often mentioned, but those were substandard. The Netherlands was the first country that included full size emergency lanes (shoulders) on all motorways. Personally, I think the New York Parkways can be seen as the predecessor of the motorway.

How much is traffic expected to increase once that border checkpoint opens?

Dutch "autosnelwegen";

A59 Waalwijk-Oost


A59 circa 1975


A59 U/C in 1961


Traffic has been busy for a long time:


Electronic sign on the S116 in Amsterdam, circa 1969.


A2 near Utrecht a long time ago:


A2 near Zaltbommel circa 1960

Afsluitdijk before the motorway A7 was constructed:


suicide lanes also existed in the Netherlands! (1965)

Yeah. Suicide lanes in NL, the A2 was still paved with normal stones instead of asphalt or sth, that's a while ago
My parents have a encyclopedia from the seventies with lots of maps of the Netherlands. I've had a look at it and it's very interesting to see all highways that weren't there yet. If I have time I'll photograph them and post them here.
