The usual Tuesday crowds and bad weather made for a heavy evening rush hour. Around 5.30 pm there was more than 950 kilometers of traffic jams. The files have now largely been resolved.
Due to technical problems at the Amsterdam Coentunnel, a rush-hour lane in the northern direction was closed, the ANWB reported. It was also busy on the A15 towards Gorinchem due to a breakdown at Sliedrecht-West, Rijkswaterstaat said.
On Tuesday morning, according to the ANWB, it was already “quite busy” on the road, although there was no record crowd for a long time. At the peak, around 8.30 am, there was more than 700 kilometers of traffic jams.
Rijkswaterstaat already warned for a busy morning and evening rush hour due to bad weather. In addition, it is often busy on the road on Tuesday, because many people travel to the office that day. Now that the May holidays are over, more people are going back to work.
