A8 importance will only be a bypass for Wrocław? Or will it be extended in the future? Perhaps in Łódź or Poznań direction?

It will be extended in both directions, but as S8/S5(2x2).

S8 will go to Prague also.

Precisely, S8 will go to Łódź, while Poznań will be connected with Wrocław by S5.

There is also an alternative to route the S8 along Klodzko in direction Brno. Our R43 is in long-term plans from R35 to border near Miedzylesie as well ... Is there any proof of this in some land-planning documents in Klodzko region?

The S8 (E67) between Radzymin and Wyszków looks great - all we need now is for the E67 between the end of Wyszków bypass all the way to
Biayłstok to be reconstructed with an extra lane, new interchanges at important minor routes, viaducts and most importantly a bypass for Zambrów (all of the towns on the E67 between Warsaw and Biayłstok like Radzymin, Wyszków and Ostrów Maz have bypasses so why shouldn't Zambrów have one? ) so that the E67 between Wyszków and Białystok can be signed as S8. There's probably no need to make the E67 from Białystok to the Lithuanina border an expressway though

A6 - 22km of brand new Polish motorway built in 2007 and adapted to the highest safety design standards? Well, it's not entirely true.

Intersection of A6 and DK31 (National Road 31). This sub-standard junction was not upgraded and lacks proper acceleration and deceleration lanes making this crossing very dangerous. That's why the A6 actually has a 100m gap - there's the "motorway ends" sign just before the intersection and "motorway starts" right past it.

The same "trick" was performed along the nearby S3 expressway: there are 3 or 4 at-grade intersections with a 70 km/h speed limit that create similar gaps in the road. I wonder if other countries use the same "technique" when covering road flaws.


A6/DK31 near Szczecin

Will they ever change this in the near future? Though there doesn't seem to be much space for a longer exit....

hmmm, good question! If it hadn't been done 2 years back when the motorway was being constructed, it's apparently not a priority and won't be upgraded soon.

Is there another speed limit in this small gap?

Well, sort of. There's no speed limit sign but since the motorway ends, you can no longer drive 130 and 90km/h is allowed. I wouldn't be surprised if many people failed to notice the sign though. I was paying attention and still barely noticed it.

That would be a big money factory for the police if they start checking there

Let's hope so. I guess that the average Polish driver also doesn't like a fine for driving 60 km/h too fast

The Polish Government should impose the law of when driving 50km/h over the speedlimit, your car is impounded for 7 days, licence supspended for 7 days and up to 10,000 dl/20,000 zl fine like what we have in Canada.

Worse...

Brisbane, Australia ... but no change in the road classification or the speed limit.

Anyway, back on topic, it would be extremely ill-considered for speed cameras to operate at the junction you showed.

licence suspension and car impounding I agree with but i think the fine should be proportional to one's income... somewhere in europe they have that... I'd take it even further and implement this system for all cases when finces are applicable... for someone earning minimum wage a fine of 20k zl is an unjust punishment (I'd argue that in Canada too)...
