THE HAGUE – Wet snow showers caused long tailbacks on the motorways in the Netherlands on Monday morning. By 8.30 am there were more than 491 km of traffic at a standstill, a spokesperson for motorists' association ANWB reported.

It was primarily busy on the A2 from Den Bosch towards Amsterdam. A traffic tailback of 21 km stretched from Zaltbommel to the junction at Everdingen. Traffic was moving slowly in both directions on the A9 between Alkmaar and Diemen. 

A 20-km traffic tailback slowed traffic between Beverwijk and Amstelveen after the bridge over the Ringvaart could not be closed earlier in the morning. The bridge was back in operation at about 7 am.

The roads have quieted down since 11 am.
