A1 Stryków - Pyrzowice - 180 km But what's important Częstochowa - Pyrzowice section has timeline to 2014 while Stryków - Częstochowa is 2012. BTW for some time it'll be the longest stretch being ever constructed in PL.

So besides Gdansk, every Euro city will have a direct motorway connection to Western Europe by 2012. Awesome. (Well Gdansk, you'd have to take A1 to A2 and you'd still get there....) If only S6 was more of a priority but maybe traffic in the north isn't enough to give it that?

Wow, a lot has changed since I drove there last time in 2003. Is this unfinished viaduct finished yet?

No.

Bid for redevelopment and adaptation to S (expressway) standard is currently under way, and is close to happy end. All required administrative decisions were granted. I'm quite sure they will start this year.

Polish highway budget increased

Poland plans to spend a colossal €4.57 billion on road projects in 2009. This represents a 35% increase over the previous year. The southern Silesia region will account for 20% of the total budget, doubling the investment made in the region in the previous year. However there is a political disagreement with regard to Poland’s A2 highway project. The Polish political party PiS said that the agreement to build the section of the A2 motorway linking Swiecko with Nowy Tomysl was signed too quickly and will provide to great a financial benefit to the winning consortium while negatively affecting the Polish budget. Meanwhile Skanska is working on a €31.3 million contract to build a ring road in the Polish capital Warsaw. The project involves building a 7km highway and seven viaducts and is set to start shortly with completion due in 2011.

Poland's ambitious highway building programme did hit financial buffers earlier this year, due to the problems with the baniking industry. This resulted in work being stopped and plans being put on hold. However, new funding sources are being found and work on many stalled projects has resumed while new projects are once again in planning.

PiS always says such things, and actually they prepared such agreements when they was ruling in Poland, and actual ruling party - PO only signed under this "trash". After that, they were searching for solution, that will allow to end this investment before euro 2012... with success!

S11 Poznan-Kornik movie by DSzumaher.

On couple of turns you can notice a slight asphalt discoloration. It is due to a special ultra-grip coating applied on those turns to keep cars from sliding in bad weather.

This approach has not be widely used in Poland so far.

How fast were you going? It seems like you were going slow. Great video though! I wish I got to see these great highways when I was in Poland, maybe someday...

Nice Poznań bypass... a bit too high noise barriers though.

For most of the time I've been driving 110 km/h, sometimes a little slower. When there is a single carriageway, it obviously 90. When the road starts dual carriageway (not expressway) is the regulatory 100 km/h.

It seems that the drive is slow due to the application of a large focal length of the camera. Also, the distance (spacing) are not entirely real.

The large focal length is used to better see the road signs, and the surrounding roads.

This colgrip not only characteristically looks, but also specific smells.

@Verso, it's Kórnik bypass towards Poznań
