I have to add this neighborhood has 32,000 inhabitants and there are only two routes to the rest of the city, so all bicycle traffic funnels down to this route and another one. Combined some 25,000 cyclists per day. I also have to add 95% of the Dutch students (age 12 - 16) cycle to school and my neighborhood has a lot of families with children that age. Thirdly, Zwolle is a fairly compact city and the historic city center is within 5 km of nearly all residential developments, thus the bicycle share within the city is in the top 3 of the Netherlands (35%). That said, public transport usage for city residents is a joke, I think less than 5%. The bicycle is faster than the bus for nearly all routes.

Why, A28 exits 400 m from the historical center

They could revert some bus lanes back into general-purpose lanes though, no need to let all traffic gridlock while some non-paying students can travel 5 minutes faster to school.

If that many people went down the road in the UK by bicycle it would be suicidal

Because distances can get quite longer in Amsterdam. Trams don't do their job, they are too slow. So the metro is quite useful as it reaches other municipalities like Diemen and Amstelveen.

No. There are many segregated bikepaths that have over/underpasses above/below roadways/railways/highways/canals/rivers/creeks, but a bike interchange is unheard of.

What you might get is something like a regular road overpass that has sideway bike paths.

So you don't have small roundabouts for bicycles?

^ Wow, 5 cents cheaper (or 0.037%). This has to be the lowest price reduction I've seen. It's also weird it was lowered from €135.00 to €134.95. I'd expect more like from €134.95 to €134.90 or so.

The worst thing about Australian signage is that signs with destinations aren't always repeated in further intersections (or roundabouts) on main city roads, so you can easily get lost without GPS (but even with it).

It differed from state to state. Some really bad ones from Queensland were posted in Ozscrapers a few years ago.

Here's a map of the area to help show where the signs are located, and the surrounding roads they reference.

Is it just me, or should the E-Toll indicator be at the bottom of the sign?
