KTM 15

The A15 between Ridderkerk and Gorinchem is the second most expensive traffic jam in the Netherlands. In this project a short term solution is devised to solve the major traffic problems.


In this project, the Verkeersonderneming made a formal request to draw up and implement a plan to solve the major traffic problems on the A15 section between Ridderkerk and Gorinchem in the short term (KTM stands for Short-Term Measures). This short-term approach aims at a coherent approach consisting of measures for road traffic and public transport to increase the accessibility of the Drechtsteden. This accessibility is under pressure: the A15 between Ridderkerk and Gorinchem is the second most expensive traffic jam in the Netherlands. There are daily traffic jams, both in the morning and in the evening rush hour, in both directions. With the planned growth of 25,000 homes and 30,000 jobs, the flow of traffic will come under even greater pressure.

What we do

In order to improve this accessibility, an interface is being built. De Verkeersonderneming stimulates and facilitates mobility service providers to solve obstacles (public parties) and to cash in on opportunities (private solvers) with mobility solutions that enable and stimulate people to travel differently (travel and driving behaviour), and encourage shippers to organise their logistics more intelligently. After the decision-making on the KTA package of measures was agreed on in 2018, it was started with flow measures (coordinated traffic management), the creation of a more quiet image (by means of small infrastructural measures) and the setting up of an interface: The Insights Factory. This interface brings together data from various sources around the A15, on the basis of which insights can be gained. Based on these insights, measures can then be implemented in the region to improve mobility.

Why we do it

By means of this interface, providers (private) and facilitating parties (public) are encouraged to create better accessibility. From the data offered (both qualitatively and quantitatively), opportunities can be identified by cleverly combining them with other data sources. In addition, by means of the data, locations with high or low potential for mobility development can be mapped out. All this data is visualised and made publicly available to public and private parties.


Our role within this project is that of project leader, in which the coordination between all the different parties involved and the writing of the question is our main task.
