Farewell in style

Monday, February 9, 2015 (update March 17, 2015
Dirk-Jan Cretier van Cretier Berging en Transport During the fourth quarter of 2014, four recovery companies carried out their final car recovery on the Dutch main road network. Their farewell was in style, with arrival times of well below the twenty-minute target. For Cretier Berging en Transport, the last call-out came on the evening of Thursday 27 November at 20:50 hours. The recovery involved a collision on the A59 motorway near Vlijmen. After nine minutes and five seconds, two recovery vehicles arrived at the scene. By 21:31 hours, the road was once again clear. Four days later, Cretier handed over recovery work on this road section to Van Eijck International Car Rescue.

The departing companies in this way contributed to a quarter marked by excellent arrival times. In the months October, November and December 2014, a total of 15,552 recovery operations were carried out on the Dutch main roads. Average arrival time was 13:52 minutes, a few seconds longer than in the previous quarter. However, the average arrival time following correction for delays as a consequence of congestion, at 12:02 minutes, was a full five seconds shorter than in the previous period. This result is in line with the increased level of congestion in the final months of the year.

The table below provides an overview of the road sections on which most accidents occurred during the first nine months of 2014. The total number of accidents in the top ten demonstrated a slight downturn as compared to previous years.
