In and around the new Coentunnel in Amsterdam, remarkably many accidents occur. Since the opening of the tunnel on May 13 there have been about 55 collisions in and directly at the tunnel, said the Traffic Information Service (VID) on Thursday.

In just over two months, a salvage vehicle had to be led  55 times to the tunnel area. According to the VID, this number is unexpectedly high. In 2010 the A16 at the  Terbregseplein was the place with the most collisions with 175 in a year.
