List of E-roads in the Netherlands

This is a list of the European Routes, or E-road highways, that run through the Netherlands. The current network is signposted according to the 1985 system revision, and contains seven Class A roads and six Class B roads within the country. Almost without exception, these are motorways that also carry various national A-numbers (for Autosnelweg). Only two small stretches of the E25 and the E30 are provincial roads (the N220 and N211 respectively).[2]
