I agree as of the lack of Bolesławiec, but you mean, Germans shouldn't sign Berlin right after Hannover?


(disclosure: Braunschweig is there, too).

I mean signing an interchange doesn't make much sense. You could sign it after the last exit before the interchange, but I don't see any added value of knowing the distance to the next interchange. Signage should reflect the traffic destinations... I don't think many people travel to Krzyzowa. Besides that, I doubt anyone will travel from there to A18, and then back on A18 northwest.

I would sign;

Boleslawiec
Wroclaw
Katowice

and ditch Korczowa too. Or replace it by Kraków, but that direction is already "covered" by Katowice from here. After you've passed Wroclaw, they could sign Kraków.

Yeah, and after Katowice they could sign L'viv. However, because there's still control at the Polish-Ukrainian border it might be good to sign Korczowa from about 50 km before the border.

btw, only 14 minutes till the opening of the A4

Nah, after Katowice, you've still got a string of major Polish cities that you have to pass through first, like Kraków, Tarnów, Rzeszów and Przemysl. I wouldn't sign L'viv earlier than Rzeszów.

LOL, the officials missed the actual opening because A4 was opened to traffic 11 minutes early.

First moving pictures from the opening of the A4 near Zgorzelec.
No doubt there will be more on YouTube tonight.

Follow this link and look at the movie near the top of the page (click the right arrow above TVN24).

I know we use the word 'film' but in English one uses either 'moving pictures' or more commonly 'movies', which is an abbreviation of 'moving pictures' and has been in common use since the 1920’s. The word 'film' can also be used but, unfortunately, this word can have other meanings too.

Yes, of course!
But I am not a genius like you are!

Anyway, for me the word 'video' conjures up images of my old Sony Betamax, which I now keep in our garage as a museum piece!

They are driving to attend the opening ceremony (highway at that time was still closed and regular traffic was already queued up on the other side waiting for a signal to go).
