THE HAGUE - The ANWB expects an extra busy evening rush hour on the Dutch roads on Thursday 20 March. The motorists' association assumes there will be about 400 km of tailbacks.
An estimated 500,000 Dutch people will be going away for the Easter weekend, the ANWB said Thursday. Most will be travelling to another part of the Netherlands.
Easter Monday will also be a busy day on the roads, as people take day trips to recreational areas, theme parks and furniture malls. In the course of the afternoon on that Monday many people will be heading home, which will result in tailbacks once again, the ANWB expects.
Most of the Dutch going abroad for the weekend are going to Belgium, Germany or France.
Since Easter falls early this year and the snow conditions are still good, many people will head to ski resorts in Austria, Switzerland and France.
