Easter holiday rush leads to traffic jams

There were long tailbacks on many of Holland’s roads on Friday as families headed off for the long Easter weekend, motoring organisation ANWB said on Friday.

By lunchtime, there were traffic jams totalling 120 km nationwide, the ANWB said. In particular, there were long delays on the A12 close to the German border and on the A1 out of Amsterdam. A number of minor accidents have added to the traffic problems, the ANWB says.
Long waits are also reported for ferries to the Wadden Sea islands, a popular getaway at Easter.
According to the latest weather forecast, Saturday will be sunny and warm, but thunderstorms are likely in the evening. Sunday and Monday will be cooler with showers, the KNMI weather bureau says.
