So the general speed limit on motorways in NL will remain at 120 km/h and you will be allowed to drive 130 km/h only if you see a sign posting that?

No, the general speed limit will be 130 km/h, but exceptions of 120, 100 and 80 km/h can occur.

The general signs at borders reflect blank speed limits. IIRC, for a while Sweden had a similar situation (general highway speed of 100 but some sectors signed at 120 or 110)

Excellent - another country going upwards with the limit.
I wonder which country will be the second -after Poland- to go beyond the magical 130km/h motorway limit.

140 km/h is planned in Bulgaria.

They were also proposal to put 150km/h on some Italian motorways with at least 3 lanes but I don't think they will ever do that.

They could put such limit on most of A1 Milano-Bologna.

At least daytime, clear skies.

And also on the A27 Mestre - Conegliano. Don't know why they built 3 lanes here, there's few traffic.

Yes it was only 100km/h on Autobahnen
Trabant and Wartburgs couldn't drive more than 100km/h
The most motorways had a bad condition.
At the Transit-Routes there was the police, to make money with the drivers from the west, who drove more the 100km/h.

The most favourable spot for Italian 150 km/h in my opinion is in A1 but further south, Rome-Naples. Straight as an arrow and not so much traffic.

And most of the exits dated back to 1930's: very sharp 90 degree turns, virtually no deceleration and acceleration lanes, and slippery because of pavement made of cobblestone.

You probably mean the Dobri on sign. What a mess.
