OK, we've got a situation here. Some journalists confounded end of the construction date with opening date. So we had the information the section will be opened this weekend. They foregot the road must be technical controlled before opening. It tooks usual up to 4 weeks.
The reality is on monday 10th August ends officially the construction. I think the the road administration won't need fully 4 weeks for check the technical stuff, but without that the road can't be opened.
So we have to keep patient for a while more.
Sorry guys.

It's the first time in last few years I remember we've got such wrong information about opening date. And it was a information you want to belive. So everybody were happy and we counted the days towards.

No, it's a key road for all those small yet powerful businesses located around Poznań, which do some 70% of their trade with Germany, and keep the unemployment at 2.3%. This region is the Baden-Württemberg of Poland.

Euro2012 will only take 2 weeks.

The missing section of the A4 between Wrocław and German border (Krzyżowa-Zgorzelec) has been scheduled for opening on 29 Aug (at least so they said here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...04917&page=224 )

When are they planning to complete the Warsaw - Frankfurt (Oder) section completely? I think the plans were initially 2012 but I heard that they are a bit behind?

BTW, I got fined for speeding on the A2 a week ago The policemen were quite nice and spoke good English though.

Building work on the western section of the A2 began approximately 2 weeks ago. The building work is scheduled to last 2.5 years. Given that construction is seasonal in Poland, and allowing for hiccups, we are looking at Q2 2012 before the motorway is finished. If you are able to read Polish look here (and subsequent pages), if not, look anyway at some of the pictures.

Our central stretch of the A2 is another story (i.e. Łódź- Warszawa). When we have some credible information from a trusted source, we'll let you know.

You must have been doing well over the limit. Traffic officers are quite lenient if you go over the limit for a while as it is not worth their time. You only get nicked if you offend persistently or drive dangerously.

Frankly, I would not expect anything less. It seems to be the norm in Poland if your job is a cushy number like being a motorway traffic officer. You must be fair-minded, reasonably well-spoken and often you are required to know a second language.
