Traffic chaos around Rotterdam

An accident involving a lorry on the A16 between Rotterdam and Breda has led to long jams and delays around the port city, the ANWB motoring organisation said on Monday morning.

The motorway is partially closed as work is carried out to restore the central barriers and clear up diesel spilled in the crash.

Transport ministry officials are recommending people delay their journeys or use public transport. The motorway will reopen around 13.00 officials said.

The situation around Rotterdam has been compounded by other accidents on the A15 heading for Europort and on the A20 in the direction of Hoek van Holland.
