People here in the UK do that with mini-roundabouts a lot, but mini roundabouts aren't that big.

The water levels of Dutch rivers are quite high. I thought I'd make a video across a dike. Unfortunately, many other people got the same idea, so we got a lot of slow drivers and even people stopping in the middle of the road to get out and take pictures.

but that idea is kinda retarded. you should expect that would happen in the case of drawn rondo so it shouldn't be hard to invest into barrier.

on the other hand, in Sorrento at Piazza Tasso there is a street lamp in the middle of intersection and roundabout made around it. but nobody cares for it it is unbelievably funny to sit at nearby caffe and watch what is happening there

Nice video Chriss!
Wich river is it? or is it a reservoir? We have had some flooding in the Demer, Meuse and Dender basin this week. Several villages flooded in the Dender basin yesterday. The River Meuse was up to one mile wide in some place along the Dutch/Belgian border this week!

In the Netherlands it's spelled IJssel not Ijssel. Ijssel is used in Flanders (Belgium).

The IJssel carries approximately 1/9th of the Rhine River water. It is the only major river that flows north from the Rhine. There are plans to improve the IJssel River capacity by constructing a bypass east of Heerde and south of Kampen. Kampen is a major bottleneck for water as there are no floodplains there like elsewhere on the IJssel River.

Normally the IJssel is approximately 100 m wide. When the floodplains are used like these days, it can grow to over 1000 meters wide. It is at its widest point near the village of Fortmond, where it is over 2300 meters wide.

The Dinkel is at flooded as well. At a few points it's about 150 m wide, where 5-10 m is normal. This is a picture I made from the Bad Bentheim-Hengelo train today:

City dam? I didn't know about any dam. Btw, how many dams do you have on Danube in Hungary?

River always reach the level of paths here in June because of melting glaciers and snow. Pics from this June.

Normal level (or whatever : ) ):

I meant the huge walls along the embankments, which is functioning as a dam when there is a flood.

I see. Yeah, when it reach the upper level of path Danube looks a bit scary and huge.

But anyway, do you have any dams on Danube in Hungary? Or even some locks?

We have a little stream in our garden which then runs to Váh - Danube so it is quite funny when I am in Budapest and I realise that the water in Danube is also from "our" stream (which is not possible in Bratislava).

do you have some bypass channels which are dry in normal conditions, but in case of flood the water is redirected into them to bypass the city?

We don't have any. One was u/c in the late 80's, early 90's somewhere around Visegrád, but it was stopped later due to greenies.

Yeah, it was the part of "Gabčíkovo - Nagymaros" project, well known for both of our nations.

The lack of dams and locks on the upper Danube is a disadvantage for shipping as sufficient water depths cannot be guaranteed, especially further into Austria. This reduces water transport potential between the Rhine and Danube.

There is already for more than 100 years crazy project of Dunaj-Odra-Labe = Danube-Oder-Elbe canal system. There is even land en purpose reserve as well as construction ban in the area of planned waterways in the municipal planning. New constructions have to respect this planning as well and the D1 construction had to (e.g. bridges). However it is rather utopian project, though some parts were in realisation before 1989.

something about it
