Traffic congestion rises in 2010

Traffic congestion in the Netherlands increased by 9% this year, compared with 2009, with Amsterdam and central areas hardest hit, says the ANWB motoring organisation.

Wintry conditions at the beginning and end of the year are among the reasons behind the rise. Three of this year’s traffic jams are in the top 10 worst days for congestion.
There were also many more jams in August than normal, the ANWB said.
The worst traffic black spot is the Roelofarendsveen-Hoogmade junction on the A4 between Amsterdam and The Hague.
