Drivers and web users were left flabbergasted by what has been branded one of the most bizarre streets in the world - with snaking road markings that resemble a Salvador Dali painting.
After the road in Oostzaan, near Amsterdam, was repainted recently, motorists have been unable to get their heads around it.
A dash cam video posted online shows a car driving down the 'Kerkbuurt' street, with red cycle lanes on both sides of the stream of traffic.
But as it continues, the road markings snake in and out, leaving the space for cars extraordinarily small - and then wide again.
Dutch media have compared it to a 'half-opened zipper' while another branded it as being 'designed by Salvador Dali', referring to the Spanish surrealist artist.
But it has since been revealed the idea for 'the world's most bizarre road layout ever' came from a local Green Party politician called Joop Klinkhamer.
He decided he wanted to make the cycle lanes the same width along he entire street so two people could cycle next to each other.
But that has meant the lane for cars is reduced to the absolute minimum - with some spots only two inches wide.
But according to local media reports, the strange layout does not mean cars are unable to drive along the road because there is not enough room - and are allowed to cross over into the cycle lanes.
The local council claims the road markings will mean drivers will pay more attention to the road.
Dutch social media users were equally as dumbfounded by the design as foreign ones.
One wrote: 'This has been tested in Belgium.
'People get completely confused because of the vague marking, causing them to drive slower, which results in fewer accidents.'
Another joked: 'This is not a road to go driving on when high on drugs.'
