1. A1 from czech border to Katowice should be ready in March 2012.
2. A4 is in traffic all the way from german border to Kraków.
3. At the moment there is no S-class road between Wrocław and Poznań while S1 between CZ border exist.

Yes, the official date is March 2012, which might be possible if the mild winter weather continues. May 2012 should be easy given the current state.

I would expect bad traffic conditions on all roads during Euro 2012. There really is no S5 between Wroclaw and Poznań yet, though there is one section that they may open on a temporary basis for Euro 2012.

I'm not aware of any special toll provisions for Euro 2012. No Polish vignettes -- just bloody toll booths.

Will Poland be closing down it's borders during the event? I know Germany and Portugal did something similar when they hosted the World Cup/Euro (not sure about Austria)

And the most important question of them all: who's going to win it?

We, the enthusiasts of Polish motorways, are the winners. Think of all the road building which is going on now just because of Euro 2012.

True ! & especially Polish people that will use these motorways &/or see those motorways get some traffic out of congested small roads.

P.S.: It'd be nice if some of our Ukrainian roadgeeks wrote something here ! We don't hear you a lot guys ! Як справи ? Як життя ? Is anybody theeeeeere ?

I agree. It would be nice. I think there are two possible reasons. One is that it's more fun to be a Polish road geek than a Ukrainian road geek because there is a lot more cool road construction going on in Poland. The other is that English is more pervasive in Poland than Ukraine (though I have some Ukrainian friends who speak English very well).

Seems, there is some nice PL highway maps in the topic. So have some other maps:

Road UA - http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_gvethXaaw2...2012_Karta.gif
(But OSM is more useful, IMHO - http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=48...oom=7&layers=M)

Hi. I would like to attend Lwiw. It is difficult to find some english or german informations concerning the current state of the M06 between the Hungarian Border and Lwiw. Has anyone driven in the last few months and could give some new informations?! Thank you!

First of all: are you driving from Munich (as your nickname suggests) ? Or from elsewhere ?

Doubtful since he's asking how the roads are between Hungary and Lviv. My guess is he's flying to Hungary and will drive from there.....

Hi,

yes, I'm from munich and I will go by car. Flights are too exepensive and I enjoy to use the car :-). I heard that the M06 should be one of the best roads in the Ukraine but I don't know how to define "best". My intention is to use either the border crossing Zahoni or Berehove!

Are you sure to go M06?? I think the best way is to go M11 from Korczowa to Lviv. That road has new pavement all way long I don`t remember if M06 from Hungary border to Lviv is renovated.

I think it's obvious that ChrisMuenchen tooks way through Austria and Hungary from Munich to reach Lviv. Section from Cracow to border is terrible in terms huge number of lorries. I would choose Hungary.

I heard about the renovation of the M11, but, as Rombi noticed, from Munich in my opinion, it is better to travel via Austria and Hungary. And, as i said, its very difficult to get some actual information about the M06

I can't be sure about current state on all length, but M06 (conventionally known as Kyiv-Chop motorway) is a key highway project for EURO 2012 and is scheduled to be completed be the championship. Thus I would recommend taking it as the best quality option. Moreover, I was taking part of M06 between Lviv and Chop when going skiing 3 years ago, and it was in perfect shape already back then. If I am not mistaken, main construction work now is being done on Lviv-Kyiv part, while Chop-Lviv segment has been ready for couple of years.

Lviv-Chop has been made about five years ago and already have some traces of repairs. It's mostly 1+1 with only some stretches 1+2 in Carpathian Mountains and 2+2 in Lviv Oblast. Here are some vids

Carpathian Mountains


Lviv Oblast' (till 5:14) from Solonka to Rudniki
