If it's quiet and you can use both lanes it's still hard to take the corner faster than 60 km/h. Advised speed in that corner is 30km/h.

When I go there, my parents always slow down to 30-45 kmh, otherwise it is too dangerous. With a Mustang you can easily take that curve with 80 kmh, but unfortunately I don't have one

With a Mustang you end up across the barrier if you go too fast... A light and powerful front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive car should be able to go fastest round that corner, not a heavy american car that can only go fast in a straight line

Well, in the US a friend of mine took me on a ride with his Mustang and told me that it is virtually 'glued' to the road. To show this he took a 90 degree curve with 75 kmh, without any problems

Jep. It was supposed to be a 4-level stack and connect to the A4 south of Rotterdam. However, it's still not finished. Now they're widening the A15 to 2x5 lanes which would significantly decrease traffic jams if they do something about Spijkenisse.

A shop at a petrol station on the A2 near Nieuwegein burned down. They closed down this section on the A2 for a few hours in both directions. Furthermore, I just saw lots and lots of traffic (and jams) on the A9 north, since everyone is going to the beach.

^ It should be N261, and there's no ring around Tilburg?

No.

First of all Dongen is named twice. That can't be right. It's either left or right, not both of them. Second of all, the Ringroad is never signed like a local destination, but with a special [RING] sign like below:

^ I didn't know about Dutch rings. About writing places twice, I don't totally agree with you. If it doesn't really matter where you go, it's good to disperse traffic (but only, if both roads have similar amount of traffic). It can cause confusion and thus even traffic accidents though. Where is N260, btw, and does Tilburg really have a true ringroad (entire circle)?

The N260 is more like a bypass. Dongen should only be signed once, the other direction should have been Waalwijk, which is quite another place than Dongen.

Is that more like an inner-city bypass? The northeastern bypass I see, is N261.

No, the N261/A261 runs through the city to Waalwijk. (was supposed to be a motorway to Gorinchem in the 50's). The N260 is the northern bypass, from A65 in the east to N282 in the west. Tilburg has build a large suburban neighborhood in the west since the 1980's.

The arrows up don't look too bad. The font is still the same, isn't it? And I don't really like the new exit signs, but it's clearer though.
