The A4 highway has been reopened after two bombs from World War II were dismantled by the Explosive Ordnance Disposal last night, NOS reports.
Two bombs dating back to World War II were found along the A4 motorway near Schiphol Airport, newswire ANP reports. The thousand-pound American bomb and the five-hundred pound British bomb were found a few weeks ago while A9 rerouting work was ongoing, a spokeswoman for Rijkswaterstraat announced.
This morning's rush hour is the busiest of the year with 400 kilometers of slow moving or stationary traffic, reports the ANWB and Traffic Information Service. The traffic jams are mainly caused by collisions, slick roads and fog.
A tuck has ended up on the train tracks on the southern side of Amsterdam after an accident between the Badhoevedorp and Slote junctions on the A4 just before 7 a.m. Nobody was hurt. There are some delays with traffic for this morning.
