Or 21 per kilometer of road. Which sounds like a lot, but intersections have a lot of road signs.

I picked a random single lane roundabout: https://www.google.com/maps/@52.1671...7i13312!8i6656

If I didn't miss any, this roundabout has 31 traffic signs. Not including directional signage and street name signs.

The signage lobby has a big influence

A15 Ressen - Zevenaar

The construction of the A15 motorway extension from the Ressen interchange to A12 at Zevenaar has been provisionally awarded to a consortium known as 'GelreGroen'.

The consortium consists of Dura Vermeer, BESIX, HOCHTIEF and John Laing. The actual design, construction and maintenance is also done by Van Oord.

Dura Vermeer and Van Oord are large players in the Dutch construction sector. Besix is a Belgian construction company and Hochtief is a German construction company. John Laing is a British investor. This project is a PPP with design, construction & maintenance period.

The project includes a 12 kilometer extension of A15 across the Rhine River canal to A12 at Zevenaar, completing the bypass of Arnhem and linking the eastern and southern parts of Gelderland province. It also includes a six lane widening of A12.

Construction is scheduled to commence in 2020 with a completion in 2024.

It is not signed as A15 on the directional signage, but it has hectometer markers with A15. It is part of 'rijksweg 15'. This will change once they construct the A15 extension.

Rijksweg X are national routes that can be both AX (motorway) or NX (provincial or national roads). The letter only tells you something about the status of that road (general speeds, minimum amount of lanes, guaranteed shoulder, guaranteed grade-seperation).

In this case it is part of Rijksweg 15, namely A15. That's the status of the road and why that can be found on the hectometer signs on the side of the road. When a route is very short it means it's not very useful to put on signage and that's why it's not on overhead directional signage and other motorways in the area might not have the A15 on their signs.

Extending the A15 to the A12 will make it part of a ring road around Arnhem and thus important enough to be signed everywhere.

A9 Amstelveen

Macquarie Capital reaches financial close on €850 million A9 Badhoevedorp-Holendrecht project

Amsterdam, 03 Dec 2019
Today Macquarie Capital, the corporate advisory, capital markets and principal investment arm of Macquarie Group, announced financial close on the c. €850 million A9 Badhoevedorp-Holendrecht PPP Project. The A9 is the final project of the Schiphol-Amsterdam-Almere corridor (SAA).

The VEENIX consortium is led by Macquarie Capital and supported by Siemens and project delivery firm Count & Cooper. The consortium was selected by Rijkswaterstaat, the executive agency of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water management in September 2019, to expand the existing A9 road near Amstelveen from three to four lanes in each direction.

VEENIX is responsible for the design, build, finance and maintenance of the project for 14 years under a design, build, finance and maintain (DBFM) contract. VEENIX is supported by FCC Construcción as contractor. The project also involves the construction of a so called ‘sunken highway’ with three roof structures, the expansion of the Schiphol Bridge and 14km of noise pollution barriers. Once complete the road will improve traffic flow, reduce congestion and improve accessibility in the greater Amsterdam area.
Full press release: https://www.macquarie.com/us/about/n...drecht-project

This is the final segment of the Schiphol - Amsterdam - Almere (SAA) megaproject.

Not just a ring around Arnhem: A few seconds looking at Google Maps shows that it would create a new route from Rotterdam to the Ruhrgebiet.

Will indeed be a big relieve for the A50/A12.

A18 farther east is still administratively a part of 'rijksweg 15'. It was originally planned to extend A15 directly to the A12/A18 'Oud Dijk' interchange and then continue the motorway to Enschede and some plans even continued it into Germany to Nordhorn.

Rijksweg 15 is 204 kilometers long. If the old plans were to materialize (A15 from Maasvlakte to German border), it would've been the longest motorway in the Netherlands at circa 260 kilometers.

Why they didn't choose to link A15 and A18 as initially planned?

It would've had a higher ecological impact, that area is home to old riverbeds of the Rhine River which is now a nature reserve.

The current route is shorter and will also function more like a ring road of Arnhem, otherwise the eastern interchange would've been too far out to relieve N325 through Arnhem from traffic (this is the busiest N-road in the Netherlands).

A15 will cross the Rhine River (technically called the Pannerden Canal) by bridge. The Betuweroute railroad crosses that location with a tunnel. This was built at a time that excessive mitigation for railroads were implemented. The natural value of that area is not that great to justify several hundred million euros in additional cost, but the railway was built during different fiscal times (and is an explanation why the railroad ended up going billions over the initial budget).

Why is the freight railways a tunnel and the road a bridge?

Edit: never mind, I see you already provided the reason.

A2 Het Vonderen - Kerensheide

The minister of transportation will sign the final plan approval for the widening of A2 in Limburg province tomorrow.

A2 will be widened to 2x3 lanes with shoulders. It currently features 2x2 lanes with shoulder lanes that are open almost the entire day.

However it's not just a simple lane addition, this motorway was opened mostly in 1963-1965 and has some antiquated design standards. The bridges will also reach the end of their service life within the next 25 years, so it was decided to entirely rebuild the motorway and replace all structures.

The widening is scheduled for 2022-2025, but there have been repeated calls to start construction earlier, perhaps already in 2020.

Are there plans to upgrade the remaining part between Eindhoven and Roermond to 2x3 as well?
That's also very busy and would also create a very uniform capacity all the way on the A2.

Last week, parliament has voted down a motion to widen Eindhoven - Weert to 2x3 lanes.

I've never seen this before. They used a VMS to indicate that the travel time on A15 at Rotterdam is 'over 180 minutes' due to a crash.
