The D66 in Amsterdam is calling for a regional tolling system on the roads around the Dutch capital. Motorists who want to reach Amsterdam during busy periods like rush hour, must pay an additional tax, according to D66 city councilor Bart Vink. The aim is to keep the city accessible during peak times, the Telegraaf reports.
The two men killed after falling from a crane in Zaltbommel on Tuesday are 53 year old Bart Vink and 61 year old Jos Relou, both from Someren. Remco van Bogget (24) was taken to the hospital with severe injuries. He is not in life threatening danger
