Location: Neufchateau. Belgium.
Date: August 2007.
Truck: Scania Longline.
Company, homebase: JanaTrans. Belgium.
Remarks: On my way back from a trip from the middle of France, I made a nightstop at the truckstop Relais St Christophe. It was to dark to get some decent pictures, but I couldn't let go on this one. My first Scania Longline on picture. This was the biggest cab available in Europe till 2006. The cab is more than half as bigger as the biggest standard Scania Topline cab. However, only a few of these cabs are build, mostley in use by o/o's. But because of the maximum length for tractor trailers of 15.50 metres, you can't take as much as payload as usual. That explains the reason why Scania stopped the production of this cab after a couple of years.
Location: Neufchateau. Belgium.

Date: September 2007.
Remarks: For two day's I had a load of empty paintcans from Halsteren in Holland to W├╝ppertal, and Frankfurt am Main in Germany. After unloading in W├╝ppertal I took highway A-45 to Frankfurt. At this pic I'm passing the valleyoverpass at the city of Siegen, southbound highway A-45.

Location: Frankfurt a M. Germany.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: The unloadingadress in Frankfurt was close to the citycentre. After unloading I had to load in Montabaur bottles for Schiedam again. On this pic I just left the plant on my way to highway A-3 via a small part of the southern Frankfurt citycentre. An impression of what you see while driving through the city.
Location: Frankfurt a M.

Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Westbound highway A-3. Big trafficjam can be seen going eastbound. This picture is taken near Frankfurt Rhein-Main international airport. In the distance you can see an Airbus A-340-600 of Lufthansa banking away after take off, probably on it's way to a North-American destination.
Location: Near Idstein. Germany.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Nortbound highway A-3. Highway A-3 was build before Worldwar 2. In those days it seemed to be usual that the highway was going overhead every single hill, instead of through it. The banking of most hills on highway 3 is thanks to that quite steep. But the landscape while driving through the Westerwald is awesome.

Location: Schiphol-Amsterdam airport.
Date: September 2007.
Truck: Scania 146L Topline.
Company, homebase: Unknown. Rig is registered in Italy.
Remarks: On my way from Zoeterwoude to Zaandam, I made a nightstop at truckstop Ziggy's world, wich is situated nearby the Schiphol airport cargoterminals. There were only a few trucks at the truckstop. The first that evening was this rig wich is honoured to one of the worlds famous formula one drivers; Ayrton Senna da Silva, who died unfortunally on a racecrash at the Imola circuit in Italy in the spring of 1992. The whole trucks is full with airbrushes of Ayrton Senna, included parts of some inteviews. The owner-driver of this rig must have lot's of respect for Ayrton Senna. Seeing this truck brought back the memories of that horrible crash, because I was one of the millions of "live" eyewitnes's that Sundayafternoon. A Sunday, part of a horrible raceweekend, because Senna was not the only racer who died that weekend at Imola. Austrian racer Roland Ratzenberger died that same weekend on Saturday during the qualiflying. Not forgetting the startcrash on Sunday, which seriously injured a couple of dozen race fans near the track by carparts flying around, and the horrible crash of Rubens Barrichello on Friday training, who survived this crash as a miracle.

Location: Nijmegen. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: At page 36 I showed you the John Frost bridge in Arnhem. Here you see the Waal bridge in Nijmegen. This was the third bridge in operation Market-Garden in September 1944. The brave paratroopers of the US 82th Airborne division were not able to get the bridge via the southbend, on where they landed. After a long fight on the southbend, a company of soldiers under command of Major Cook, attacked the northbend on small boats to take the bridge via the North. However, it was easy for the enemy to shoot on those paratroopers while sitting in their small boats. Still most of them were able to land on the northbend. After a short, but heavy gunfight with the Germans. Cook's paratroopers reached the northentrance of the Waalbridge. Now tanks of the British 30th corps were able to pass the bridge safely, also thanks to the Dutch resistance, who destroyed the wire's of the German exploses underneath the bridge. Unfortunally at the same time when the Waalbridge was in Allied hands, the brave British paratroopers in Arnhem had to surrender at the Rijnbridge, where they fighted for days with handguns against tanks of 2 German SS Panzerdivisions. Picture is taken while entering the Waalbridge from the north in the Friday-afternoon trafficjam. On the southbend is the city of Nijmegen.
Location: Gronsveld. Holland.

Location: Vuren, Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Truck: Volvo VN770.
Company, homebase: Kleyn Trucks. Vuren, Holland.
Remarks: When loading beerbottles in a small warehouse at the Kleyn-yard, I noticed 5 Volvo VN770's belonged to King Freightlines in Pictou, Nova Scotia, Canada. Kleyn Trucks bought them and ferried them to the Netherlands. These tractors are sold now to hauliers in Russia. Unfortunally I couldn't get a better picture, because the tractor was surrounded by trucks. The others were inside the garage.



Location: Near Rilland, Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Westbound highway A-58. Unique sight, a large containership on the highway......Actually the ship is moving eastwards on the Westerschelderiver en course to the port of Antwerp. The port of Antwerp is about 60 kms away from the Northsea, connected by the Westerschelde. That's why you can see the seaships "movin over land", if you pass this point at highway A-58.
Location: Eindhoven, Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Work in progress at the Eindhoven orbital. Since 2006 the roadworks to started to get a better Eindhoven orbital. They have to be finished in 2011. So a lot of time to go when I wrote this in January 2008. Here you see the orbital, and the roadworks, when coming from Hasselt, Belgium.
Location: Eindhoven. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Westbound highway A-67. From 2011 there will be 2 seperated roads in one direction. One will be for local traffic, and the other for through traffic. You can see on the pic that the local road is visible already.
Location: Eindhoven. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Westbound highway A-67. Here you see the works on highway crossing "De Hogt", where Highway A-2 continues to the north, and highway A-67 to the west. This crossing wil be renewed with some large fly-overs. Hopefully this means the end of the daily trafficjams at "De Hogt".
Location: Eindhoven. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-2. An impression of the roadworks near Veldhoven.
Location: Eindhoven. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-2. Also highway crossing "Batadorp" is getting some fly-overs to avoid the daily traffic jams near this crossing. "Batadorp" is the highway crossing of highway A-2 ( north-south ) and highway A-58 ( east-west. Ending north of Eindhoven. )
Location: Echt. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-2. A new highway in the Dutch province of Limburg will be highway A-73, wich connects the north of the Netherlands, vis the east to the south. The missing part was in between Venlo and Maasbracht. All traffic had to passed overhead the busy "Napoleonhighway". Now highway A-73 is available since February 2008. That means 20 minutes less traveling from Maastricht to Venlo. But on this picture, the works on this highway still weren't finished as you can see here.
Location: Echt. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-2. At the right you see the new northbound lane of highway A-73.

Remarks: Northbound highway A-73. In September, parts of highway A-73 near Venlo were already finished and in use.
Location: Ewijk, Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-50. A Dutch weapon, or better; a temporary solution, against traffic jams is what we called the "spitsstrook". This is not more than a hard shoulder in use during the morning and evening rushhour. here you see the "spitsstrook" near the Waalbridge near Ewijk.
Location: Near Ewijk. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-50. Traffic information Dutch style. Every major highway crossing in the Netherlands is having such traffic information sign in all directions. So you can see what's the best way to go to avoid large traffic jams.
Location: Near Ewijk. Holland.
Date: September 2007.
Remarks: Northbound highway A-50. Passing the river Waal about 10 kms west of Nijmegen.
