Even now we have around 600 km U/C (A/S) with 100+ km more before end of 2009.
It is not so bad, especially conparing this number with those of previous years.

I like this, great landscaping, attention to detail and a good choice for the sidewalk pavement. Much better than our 30x30 cm tiles which look decayed the moment you install them....

This is in Katowice by the way.

Natomiast po co te wysepki są nie wiem





Nowa kostka, takiej chyba jeszcze w Katowicach nie ma. Zaletą na pewno jest to że jest płaska





Skrzyżowanie z Damrota



Tu już posadzono kwiatki





I skrzyżowanie z Francuską



Wracamy





Miła niespodzianka, ścieżka rowerowa









Ścieżka za przystankiem, super, ale z jednej strony cieszę się, że ścieżka jest ale denerwuje od razu że tego nie można było zrobić porządnie. Głównie chodzi mi o oddzielenie ścieżki od chodnika, przecież wystarczy dosłownie 30cm przerwy w której by się zrobiło niski żywopłot. Wtedy i to wygląda jakoś i jest praktyczne. A jak to jest za dużo to chociaż można było ścieżkę zrobić 2-3cm wyżej niż chodnik, cokolwiek.



Tu się ścieżka kończy



A teraz zagadka, dlaczego podczas remontu Granicznej nie zrobiono ścieżki?? Brak miejsca??



Przecież jakby ją zrobić to byłby już wyjątkowo długi odcinek jak na Katowice bo od skrzyżowania przedłużonej Damrota z Francuską aż do Lidla

Yeah, this nice, but sadly quite rare. The most common are ugly 50x50 cm concrete slabs.

The Warszawa A, S and GP network will be quite impressive.

I grabbed this map from the GDDKiA website, and translated the legend:

The maps seems to be fairly up to date, since it also features the A4 as in operation.

It's design&build one, so we still need to wait one year.

Design & Build is towards Warsaw but what about a small section north of Bialystok towards Suwalki ? I don't think its on the map.

Yeah, Warsaw seems to have a huge problem with signage, you'll never meet such old signs everywhere else.

I'd give it 30 years.

I'm sad to see nothing planned/u-c on either side of the Polish-Lithuanian border I drive there a lot and conditions are pretty terrible (on both sides I must say).

It is, you can only remove the capital letter from Autostrady.

I think making a title like "Polish motorways, expressways and highways | Polskie autostrady, drogi ekspresowe i drogi krajowe" may be pushing it a bit

There is a reason this kind of pavement is almost never chosen. It does damage to women's heels and can also lead to serious injuries because of that. Pavement should be useful and safe to use for all its users in the first place, not nice.

These days much better materials are chosen for pathwalks, many of them are still paved with crappy square concrete slabs which look really dull
