The A67 is important for the accessibility of the south of the Netherlands and for goods transport. There are often problems with the flow of traffic on this busy road, particularly during the rush hour. Around 25 to 40 percent of the vehicles on it are lorries. Accidents, which lead to long delays, occur regularly and this is why we need to look at how the flow of traffic on the A67 can be improved.
This is being examined in the 'A67 Investigation (Verkenning A67)'. The start decision for this investigation was signed by Minister Schultz van Haegen and Mr Van der Maat and Mr Van der Broeck, members of the Provincial Executives of North Brabant and Limburg respectively, in October 2016. The investigation is looking especially at how new innovative technologies in the field of mobility and traffic management can contribute to getting all the private vehicles and lorries on the road to where they need to be smoothly and efficiently. The A67 Investigation is focusing on the section between the Leenderheide traffic junction in Eindhoven and the Zaarderheiken traffic junction near Venlo.
