Rush hours jams thinning

1st March 2009, Comments 0 comments

Pressure on the country's motorways during the morning and evening rush hours is continuing to decrease.

THE NETHERLANDS - The ANWB national traffic organisation says there was five percent less traffic on the motorways in February this year than in the corresponding month in 2008.

Traffic jams were also shorter in January and December.

However, the organisation says the number of jams outside the rush hours is on the increase.

On 10 February, snow and rain caused a total of 410 kilometres of tailbacks.

Two days later, slippery roads and closed traffic lanes around Arnhem and Nijmegen also led to long jams.
