CIVIL ENGINEERING AT ITS BEST LEVEL..NETHERLANDS'S ROAD

NETHERLANDS'S  ROADS AND INFRASTRUCTURE




With 139,295 km of public roads,the Netherlands has one of the most dense road networks in the world - much denser than Germany and France, In 2013, 5,191 km were national roads, 7,778 km were provincial roads, and 125,230 km were municipality and other roads.
Dutch roads include 2,758 km of motorways and expressways, and with a motorway density of 64 kilometres per 1,000 km², the country also has one of the densest motorway networks in the world.





Mobility on Dutch roads has grown continuously since the 1950s and now exceeds 200 billion km travelled per year, three quarters of which are done by car,meaning that while Dutch roads are numerous, they are also used with one of the highest intensities of any road network. Car ownership in the Netherlands is high but not exceptional, and slightly lower than in surrounding countries. Goods vehicles account for 20% of total traffic.

The busiest Dutch motorway is the A16 in Rotterdam, with a traffic volume of 232,000 vehicles per day. The widest Dutch motorway is the A15/A16 just south of Rotterdam with 16 lanes in a 4+4+4+4 setup.
