On January 17, 1972, former Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and former King Boudewijn of Belgium opened a new highway between Breda (The Netherlands) and Antwerp (Belgium), named the E-10.

Via the usual route at the time, the Queen drove to Belgium with a Dutch public transport bus to Antwerp. She met the King in the city and together they drove back to Breda over the new highway with Dutch and Belgium public transport buses.

The historical moment is visualised on the terminus facility for bus drivers of the public transport company Arriva. The colours refers to the public transport bus, a crown and a ‘strippenkaart’ (the former Dutch public transport ticket).
