This little bridge still is a bottleneck in the A2 but within a few years the traffic can move on as the road get widened from 2x2 to 2x4 lanes. This little old bridge will gone by then.

The Afsluitdijk was not as spectacular as I imagined (although still a truly astonishing construction by any standards). Unfortunately some idiot put a grass verge on the right, so as completely to lose the effect!!

From my point of view (southbound), this was the end of the Afsluitdijk - though you have to give way to the boats!

This used to be the classic example of where the smooth Dutch surface gave way to the Belgian farce. But no more in fact, the Belgians must have done a spot of resurfacing here?
