  • Description

    Queen Juliana of Holland and King Baudouin of Belgium jointly opened a major section of a trans-Europe motorway on Monday (17 Jan).

    The new section of highway eliminates a vital missing link in a motorway system that runs from Scandinavia to the south of France.

    Economically the motorway is invaluable because it provides a new, easy link between two of Europe's major ports, Rotterdam and Antwerp.

    At the border between Holland and Belgium, vehicles will be able to pass from one country to another without having to pass border stations and barriers. It's the first international motorway to do without border checkpoints.
