Single body needed to manage roads

The Netherlands needs a new national body to manage its road networks and take a nationwide approach to traffic congestion, according to the government’s transport and waterways council.

The new body would control the country’s 2,500 kilometres of motorway and 7,000 kilometres of major local roads, the council says.
At the moment roads are managed by an alliance of national, provincial and local officials whose interests often conflict.
