Just think of how many motorists didn't get a new road because of that! :lol:

Remarkable and how nice would it be to have something like that at intersections around here.

A suspended velodrom, just need some higher banks and your off. Good idea that works for both motorists and cyclists though no doubt a costly endeavour.

The below road round-about for cyclists must have cost a fortune! :shock:

Houten sure looks like a really desirable place to live!
