Future of Mobility in Netherlands 2030

The Netherlands has 90 billion km driven in NL, of which 50% is business related, with a significant increase in business use, yet not a corresponding increase in productivity of the economy. This means that investing in new roads is NOT the best way to spend public money. How will mobility evolve in the next 20 years.

Or will it have a new lease of life, renewed through urban agriculture, (witness the NYC lightrail project, etc)? What will the city's relevance be when physical meetings come to an end?
