The Betuwe routes On the one hand long and boring to get past the obstacles of tracks and highways. On the other hand, it is fascinating to see how people have influenced the environment. Van de Linge you see this trip relatively little. You approach the water via bridges. Only at the end you walk past it again. Start at the Opheusden station and leave the Linge to cross the Betuweroute and the A15. It is a bit confusing, but there are two tracks: one is called the Betuwe line, on which passengers are transported, the other is called the Betuwe route, on which goods transport takes place. Both lines accompany the Linge over a great distance. The Betuwe line is actually not that old yet and dates from 1882 and has made a major contribution to opening up the isolated Betuwe. Accompany the line from Elst to Gorinchem. Various railway companies operate the line (NS, Synthus, Arriva), which is operated by diesels between Elst and Tiel. The rest of the line is electric. To travel as cheaply as possible on this track, you should not use the public transport chip, because you pay the boarding fare for every transport change. The discount card only works well by buying a paper ticket through the vending machine or the internet. Very fuzzy so this public transport system in the Netherlands. The Betuwe Route is the newest freight railway line, which runs from Zevenaar to the Rotterdam ports. De Linge therefore runs along it in its full length. The trains started running there from 2007. At the moment it is still fairly quiet on the sections of this expensive railway line. This is mainly because the connection in Germany is not yet optimal. Special locomotives are running to use the special voltage of 25kV (50Hz). The Netherlands is an odd man out with its 1500V direct current on the main network. The other route that you constantly cross is the A15. The motorway runs from the Maasvlakte to Enschede, where the highway around Zevenaar is missing. Maybe that will come someday. On the highway you are confused by the maximum speed, which is sometimes 130km / h, sometimes 120km / h or sometimes 100km / h. You also have to look at your watch, because other speeds apply between 19:00 and 6:00. Our stage passes the highways three times, sometimes climbing the slopes through the grass and sometimes via a staircase (near Zoelen, Tiel). The Amsterdam Rhine Canal is also an important obstacle. It is in between Wijk bij Duurstede and Tiel) "yes, yes, both Hanseatic cities!" completely new excavated and with its 120m width suitable for 4-barge push sail. It is interesting to note that one of the most notorious Dutch war criminals, Anton Mussert, was one of the founders of the plans for this channel. He came up with the idea of bringing the level between Amsterdam and the Lek to one level in order to keep the canal between them free of locks. Pass the canal at Tiel-Zoelen. The slope cannot be taken here, you have to walk 2 km here, because the high fences (2 pieces with barbed wire) are impregnable. De Linge flows here under the canal and finally becomes a real river after Zoelen and Tiel. By the way, Zoelen is a beautiful protected village with a castle and white houses. On the other side of the Linge there is Tiel. One of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, just like Nijmegen on the Waal.
