Where exactly? The closest bypass being build is ca. 40 south from Częstochowa, right after a very jammed crossing with concrete surface on DK1. Was it that one?

Say sth about how you enjoyed or not driving in Poland.

No, no. The one that's being built some 20 km south of Częstochowa. They were building a junction with DK1 and this new road going to Katowice and Częstochowa direction. I'll make pictures of that site next week.

When will the S8 Rybniki - Białystok be completed?
The construction works look to be advanced

I drove the exact same route. DK8 to Bialystok, DK8 to DK50 and then bypassing Warsaw using DK50 all the way to S7, turning south to Krakow and going to Radom via S7 and later DK7 all the way to Krakow.

By the time I got there I felt like a worn out piece of rag. Until both S7 and S8 are completed don't expect any overly positive reviews

What's good about S7 is that from Tarczyn to Warsaw it will be built as a new route a the eastern side of current DK7

That's a bit of Madrid style Radials

Your roads are great! I always liked them, if they are new of course. The only thing that annoy me - your drivers. Can't understand how can you give licences to such people.

Hopefully they do not go as dramatic as the A4 Kraków - Tarnów... Man, are they just drinking vodka over there? (j/k) I thought it had to be completed by Tarnów by now.

I think that the plan is to wait until the A4 from Kraków to Szarów is finished in September before commencing construction on the Szarów to Tarnów section. There seems to be no desperate rush to carry on the motorway to the Ukranian border

What? There is nothing like waiting for another stretch to be finished.

Tenders for all sections but for Rzeszów - Jarosław (ca. 50 km) are already announced. You cannot make anything faster now.
