No, sausage is kiełbasa in polish. I wonder what the term Tranzyt (Transit) means trafficwise, is it some kind of fast expressway with less exits and interchanges ?

It means as much as "through traffic". In France they'd put "toutes directions"

"Tranzyt" sings are mostly useful for lorries, drivers of lorries know which road they can go out from city or through the city and on which roads there is no tonnage limitation.

For Poles when hear "Kołbaskowo" they really could come to mind "kiełbasa"/sausage
Both words have some kind of connection when you hear but not formal, both mean different things.

In France, just before Somport tunnel
https://www.google.es/maps/@42.82538...qXqe2W3d8Q!2e0

Right, Les Forges d'Abel (last village in France)
Ahead, in white Canfranc and Jaca (both in Spain, Canfranc is the first village and Jaca the first cross road where A-23 starts)
in green, Huesca and Saragosse
Left, Col du Somport (mountain pass name, it is the old road through the pass), Stations de ski (Ski resorts): Astun, Somport, Candanchu (Astun and Candanchu are in Spain, Somport is a binational cross-country ski resort)




About Candanchu-Le Somport cross-country ski-resort I think I posted them but...

https://www.google.es/maps/@42.78438...4-CkWg!2e0!3e5
The stick is the boundary. Ahead France, Back Spain


https://www.google.es/maps/@42.78373...BvtzxQ!2e0!3e5
I have no idea where in hell border is in the picture. Maybe in summer it is easy to find any signal but nothing when it is snowed


Candanchu-Le Somport has more lanes in France but only two are in google maps. Here you are the cross-country ski resort map
http://www.lesomport.com/images/plandespistes.pdf

What it appears in google is the track number 5 in the map

Meanwhile in Malaysia. Sign for Satun province (Thailand) in front of the border crossing in Perlis state on state road R15. Note the sign is rendered in latin alphabets, not thai.

https://www.google.com.my/maps/@6.6961359,100.1797614...EUlmgnIKXA!2e0

Unfortunately most signboards to Thailand in Malaysia only show "Thailand" instead of big cities such as Hat Yai or Bangkok. Probably because Peninsular Malaysia borders Thailand and Singapore only while the rest is surrounded by sea.

Another thing that lacks in Malaysia and other Asian countries is ovals when signing a city in neighboring countries. Instead of "Tuas" or "Woodlands" alone, it would be good to sign "Tuas (SGP)" and "Woodlands (SGP)"; as well as "Johor Bahru (MAL)" instead of "Johor" alone on the Singaporean side ...
I still remember a long time ago, when approaching Singapore, there were simply "Singapura" signs. However, at that time, there was only one causeway (Woodlands - Johor Bahru)

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

Gruškovlje sounds nice for me. Like a Pear hamlet. Certainly better than Rupa behind the Croatian border....

^ Pear is "hruška" in Slovenian, so it's similar indeed (and yes, I do think of pears when I hear "Gruškovje").

Well they ain't in EU....
But they do have those signage in Malaysia ,especially on the expressway from KL ,when nearing the "end" (the expressway direct from Singapore is BKE-Causeway-EDL (Eastern Dispersal Link [E14] )- NSE [E2] (also AH2) )

Mostly they would say singapura ,but if you lucky you may still find some signage still says woodlands.

Gruszka in Polish, and yes, I've always assumed that Gruskovje was a place full of pears, especially as it's quite forested there. It's funny how similar Slavic languages can be - for me, it's much easier to understand Croatian than to understand German, even though I'm not a Polish native speaker.

Oh, dear! When I lived in Singapore 1994-96 and a couple of years afterwards in the EU road signs to neighboring countries weren't as clear as they are (getting) nowadays! Just a few examples I still remember from those times (some of them are still not changed):
- Germany: Pilsen, Arnheim, Nimwegen, Küstrin (Plzeň, Arnhem, Nijmegen, Kostrzyn)
- Lithuania: Varšuva, Suvalkai, Gardinas, Daugpilis (Warsaw/Warszawa, Suwałki, Hrodna, Daugavpils)
- Latvia: Kauņa, Pleskava (Kaunas, Pskov)
- Estonia: Pihkva, Riia (Pskov, Rīga)
- France: Saragosse, Saint-Sébastien, Gand (Zaragoza, Donostia / San Sebastián, Ghent/Gent)
- Spain: Francia / França / Frantzia (France) , Portugal I still remember leaving Iruńa/Pamplona and seeing "Francia" on the left and "Francia" on the right. Without GPS, you can go nuts!
- Portugal: Espanha (Spain)
- The Netherlands: Luik (Ličge)
- Austria: Pressburg (Bratislava)

So guys, you can do it lah!

for a second I read this and understood the Lithuanians referred to Warszawa as "dog piss"

I guess in reality it is the Krakowians that do

I don't know any single country in the world where people from the province like the capital city! Lithuanians hate Vilnius, Venezuelans hate Caracas, Poles hate Warsaw, Frenchies hate Paris, Spaniards hate Madrid, Portuguese hate Lisbon, Italians hate Rome, Czechs hate Prague, Russians hate Moscow, Romanians hate Bucharest ...

I do remember that some 15 years ago or more I was looking for proper road to Basel in suburb of St. Luis (France), but there were only signs "Bale"... I catched just after cca. one hour that "Bale" means Basel (Frenchmen didn`t put "CH" oval sticker next to the "Basel" inscription on the signs)

But still everybody from the province goes to the capital to find a job.
