Rijkswaterstaat expects rush hour and early Friday evening to be busy due to holiday traffic. The largest crowds are expected on the roads in the south and east of the country. Summer vacation begins in the southern region and construction holiday (construction trade) in the central region. Many people immediately go on vacation.
Rijkswaterstaat thinks early vacationers hit the road in the afternoon. From 3pm, regular traffic will also be added. It can stay occupied until 7pm.
As of Friday evening, travelers around Amsterdam should take into account the significant inconvenience. The A10-South motorway towards Utrecht will be closed from the Badhoevedorp junction to RAI. Work will continue until August 3.
People leaving for their holiday destination next weekend should also take into account the traffic jams at home and abroad. According to ANWB, it could also be busy outside due to tourists returning from vacation.
Tomorrow is the second Black Saturday of the year in France. French traffic authorities are warning motorists that they will be stuck in traffic for hours at some points.
