The main road, with a speed limit of 70 km/h, runs alongside this minor road which has been made into a through road only for cyclists. This is a cheap and effective way of building good cycling infrastructure.

Note that while we stop at a set of traffic lights here, the timing is the same as if we'd been on the road. What's more, the next set apply only to drivers and we ride right on whatever colour they are.

Note also the noise barriers to reduce the impact of the sound of cars at 70 km/h on residents. It is rare in the Netherlands to find a road which could cause a noise nuisance which doesn't have such barriers. Also, the road surfaces used create less noise in the first place.
