The A13 motorway is a motorway in the Netherlands, connecting the cities of The Hague and Rotterdam. The Rotterdam The Hague Airport is located next to the A13.

Route description[edit]

The 17-kilometre-long (11 mi), highly congested motorway is the main motorway connection between these two cities. It is a dual carriageway with three lanes in each direction. Between the junctions Berkel and Delft-Zuid managed motorway is effective, when certain intensities occur the hard shoulder is opened for traffic heading north.[2] The maximum speed on the road is 100 km/h.

European route E19, the route between Amsterdam and Paris, follows the complete A13 motorway between the interchanges Ypenburg and Kleinpolderplein.

Future[edit]

To relieve the southern part of A13 motorway from traffic, the plan exists for a major by-pass for the city of Rotterdam, connecting the A13 directly with the A16 motorway. The A16 will be extended from its current terminus at interchange Terbregseplein towards a new interchange with the A13 between exits Berkel en Rodenrijs and Delft-Zuid. The remaining part of the A13, between this interchange and interchange Ypenburg, would then have to be widened.[3]

Exit list[edit]

The entire route is in South Holland Province.
