That's great, although I'm a bit sad too. So how fast could you drive on this? I imagine your car breaking appart, if you were trying to drive 130 km/h here.

I think 50 - 60km/h max. Faster would be very uncomfortable.

This part of the road was not signed as a motorway that time, so the maximum allowed speed was 100km/h. But i tried to drive more than 100, even 130. A horrible experiment. I don't wish my enemy to drive on roads like that.

BTW: I know - driving faster than it's allowed, is stoopid.

Two words about halls on motorway and this exit



Both pictures are taken from http://www.autobahn-online.de/ website.

Chriszwolle is wrong. This was not in Poland, but a A4 motorway near Dresden (AS - exit 86 - Ohorn) and near Bautzen (halls). There was no connection between Bautzen and polish border and the last part of A4 was closed. That's why they stood halls on motorway.

Now this road is renovated, made of smooth concrete, with 2x2 lanes, of course without halls and reaches the polish border near Zgorzelec/Gorlitz.

Ok, small misunderstanding.
I agree, A4 near Wrocław looked similarly to this one.

I will write it using small text.
I know we in Poland still don't have road network like we should have. I know this was not only one crappy road in Poland, and there are still roads like that. I just can't believe that polish drivers agreed to use this road every day - this was (and still is) my way from home to work.
I posted my pictures only to prove, that we improve our roads. And i'm sad, that it takes to much time. But it's not any offence for me, that someone has fun looking at this picture. This thread is to have fun. I can post thousands of pictures, that will make you laugh. The offence would be, if this road stayed in this condition.


I'm waiting of course to see crappy roads from all your countries.

Sorry for my english, my parents taught me polish.

A special message to X-type: This year i visited Croatia and i'm jealous of croatian motorways. If you find this war pictures, post them.

Thank you for your attention.

Your English is quite alright. I've seen (much) worse.

About crappy motorways in the Netherlands; we don't have any. Ofcourse the pavement is sometimes a bit bumpy, but crappy? No.

Maybe the Strijp in Eindhoven? (never been there, but I heard it was very bad pavement there) Though I doubt it has still a motorway qualification...

O yes, if it comes to quality - motorways in Netherlands are my favourites. Even better than german. Wide, smooth and because of speed limits - much safer.
My objection is, that sometimes you can't drive straight ahead with the main direction, but you need to change roads. For example, from Your area: A1 near Almelo, A6 near Emmeloord or (that is really irritating) A2 near Eindhohen - You need to change 4 times. Luckily interchanges are extensive and you don't need to slow down to 30 km/h to change.
And the second point are vanishing motorways - for example A50 near Zwolle - when suddenly motorway, without any understandable reason (ecology? i've only seen maps and satellite pictures of this road), becomes a single carriageway and 20 km later motorway comes back.

Yeah, those are called TOTSO's (Turn Off To Stay On).

About the A50; it has been planned as a motorway since 1968. The section Ens - Emmeloord has 1 lane per direction, + emergency lanes, and also divided by a barrier. Kind of a one lane motorway. The section near Ens has traffic lights, the exits near Kampen are grade separated. The N50 is now 2+1 between Interchange Hattemerbroek (A28/A50/N50) and Kampen-Zuid (south), with a speed limit of 100km/h. The section between Kampen-Zuid and Kampen has a speed limit of 80km/h, but the section between Kampen and Kampereiland (across the IJssel river) has a 100km/h limit.

There are talkings about a motorway from time to time, but i doubt if it will happen within the next 15 years.
