Will it be rebuilt to motorway standards?
Is that a motorway?

What a disappointment. Most if not all Polish expressways I've ever driven are better than this and still not signposted as motorways.

This route was built before the WW II, so it`s narrower than the newest motorways

This and A4/A18 in Lower Silesia were the only "motorways" on Polish territory after the last war. They were first signposted with the sign some time in the seventies (I'm not sure). Anyway, it was before the modern motorway standards were adopted and before "droga ekspresowa" was invented. The standards have changed since then, but these roads remained "motorways".
A4 west of Wrocław doesn't even have a hard shoulder which disqualifies it as a "motorway", in fact it has lower standard than nearby "expressway" S8

There are also some substandard "expressway" sections built in the communist times, most notably S6 in Tricity.

According to the Polish forum the second carriageway of the S3 Gorzów Wlkp bypass will fully open to traffic in the first week of October

Half year behind schedule... typical Dragados.
Still better than Salini. They are the new Alpine Bau or Polimex in terms of delays

Hi, am I correct in thinking that the latest under construction network between Warsaw and Lublin will be of concrete structure? If so, why not asphalt?

Also, does anyone know when the S2 Warsaw ringroad will start being under construction mode? They better start soon if they want it complete by the summer of 2020.

No, we can only estimate the dates.
Section A may be started in ~December
Half of section B is already under construction, the other half should start in October or November.
Section C may be started soon.

_____

Construction of S7 and S5 (also called DK16) around Ostróda. This section includes some large brigdes, one of them is visually similar to the infamous MA532 in Mszana.
