The Rijksweg 50 (abbreviation: RW 50 ) - Short form: Autosnelweg 50 (abbreviation: A50 ) / autoroute 50 (abbreviation: N50 ) - is a Dutch motorway . The motorway begins in Eindhoven in the east of the province of Noord-Brabant and runs via Arnhem in the province of Gelderland and Apeldoorn to Emmeloord in the north of the province of Flevoland .

Rijksweg 50 originally ran from the Hintham ( A2 ) interchange , a district of 's-Hertogenbosch , to the Joure interchange ( A7 ) in the Dutch province of Friesland . The part between the Emmeloord interchange and the Joure interchange is now part of the A6 , while the section between the Hintham interchange and the Paalgraven interchange is now part of the A59 .

Four green bridges span the A50 . Two are between Arnhem and Apeldoorn ( Woeste Hoeve and Terlet ), two more on the section between Oss and Eindhoven, near Uden and Son en Breugel .

N50 Oss - 's-Hertogenbosch

The N50 between Oss and 's-Hertogenbosch was originally part of Rijksweg 50. However, since the route of the A50 was laid out from Oss in the direction of Eindhoven, the section between Oss and' s-Hertogenbosch was given its name after conversion and expansion A59.

Motorway A50 Eindhoven - Oss

Before the A50 was built, Eindhoven was connected to Oss by the N265, which ran through the town centers of Son, Veghel and Mariaheide . By completing the last section of the A50 between Eindhoven and Oss, the connection between the two cities has been improved and the traffic nuisance in the affected areas has been significantly reduced.

In 2001, work began to complete the section between Eindhoven and Uden. This section was opened to traffic in 2004. In October 2005 the section between Uden and Oss was also completed. On July 8, 2006, construction work on the Paalgraven interchange was completed. This motorway junction connects the A50 with the A59, although traffic to and from 's-Hertogenbosch has to leave the motorway briefly.

The connection of the A50 to the motorways around Eindhoven was made possible until March 2010 through road crossings ( same-plan junctions ) and traffic lights . In the course of the renovation and expansion of the motorway ring around Eindhoven ( A58 , A2 , A67 ) from four to eight lanes , the Ekkersrijt / Bokt motorway junction was expanded into a fully-fledged motorway junction with connecting ramps . When the work is completed in spring 2010, the southern part of the A50 will also be fully connected to the motorway network.

The section between Eindhoven and Oss is 35 km long, with the surface layer being made from a continuous piece of concrete . This type of top layer was used here on a large scale for the first time in the Netherlands.

Open-pored asphalt was used as the top layer in order to keep the nuisance caused by traffic noise as low as possible for those living in the immediate vicinity of the A50 .

Motorway A50 Oss - Hattemerbroek

The A50 and A12 share a route between the Grijsoord interchange and the Waterberg interchange . For this reason, this section has been expanded to six lanes.

Car route N50 Hattemerbroek - Emmeloord

From the Hattemerbroek motorway junction to the Emmeloord junction, Rijksweg 50 is not designed as a motorway, but as an autoweg ( motor road ). The section from Hattemmerbroek to Kampen- Zuid was extended by a third lane (2 + 1 extension) and opened to traffic in 2006. As early as 2003, a new route was laid for the section between Kampen and Ens using the Eiland Bridge west of Kampen. Due to the increasing number of fatal traffic accidents, however, there are plans to expand this route to the motorway.
