Number Traffic Jams Decrease

. ()

The last quarter the number of traffic jams was only half of the average over the last seven years. There have never been so little congestion on the roads, announced the ANWB on Tuesday.

The motorists and tourists organisation  ANWB, says that in the summer months and September there were less traffic jams on the roads, both by length and time.

Next to the common daily traffic jams, the motorists had some extra delays in September. These were caused at the north side of the Coentunnel in Amsterdam and around the Maastunnel in Rotterdam.

The accident prone Coentunnel was the scene of many collisions and on September 18 it had even to be closed three times.

The traffic jams in the Maastunnel were caused by a fire in the harbor area.
