Bridge blues


Traffic on the Afsluitdijk was held up for several hours on Monday after a bridge failed to close.

Long queues built up on the A7 motorway that runs over the dike heading from Friesland to Noord-Holland after the bridge at Den Oever jammed at around midday. Traffic flowing in the opposite direction was unhindered. The ANWB motoring organisation advised drivers heading out of Friesland to take a diversion and use the A6 and A1 highways instead.
