Air quality norms around roads to cost €700m

Tackling Holland’s traffic congestion problems will cost another €400m in the coming years, according to an interview with Jan Hendrik Dronkers, director of roads and traffic safety at the transport department, in Monday’s Financieele Dagblad.

This amount is on top of the additional €300m announced by transport minister Karla Peijs at the end of 2006.
The extra cash is needed to meet Dutch and new EU air quality norms for road construction projects.
