Great report, thanks a lot

I take it construction will minimize the next months because of the winter?

Which one is that? The A4/S7 interchange at the southern side of Kraków? (S7 to Zakopane)

Oh

Katowice... A4/S1?

Polish interchanges are often named after very small villages, so it's a bit hard to locate them. (Szarów is like 15 houses or so).

The S1 is not in Katowice at all but east of it serving as eastern bypass of "Silesia" metro area. This is A4/DK86 interchange, called "Murckowska" because DK86 (seen on last shot) in this area is named Murckowska street (after Murcki, one of Katowice districts). So A4/DK86 is in fact Roździeńskiego ave./Murckowska st. interchange

I gotta say it would be better if Poland renamed some motorway-motorway interchanges. Drivers, not known to the area (that's why you have signage) don't know that Klucz is near Szczecin or Konotopa is near Warszawa. I would rename those into Szczecin-south and Warszawa-west respectively, more like they do in Germany. In the Netherlands, we made the same mistake.

For instance, interchange Lankhorst is named after Lankhorst, which is just a few scattered farms. It doesn't even have city limits. How should one know that exits Zoeterwoude-Rijndijk en Hoogmade also serve the city of Leiden?

In television they often say 'Stryków-Konotopa' I bet at first many people had no idea from where to where it will be

This section will be the "A1" during Euro2012:

As you can see, even 360 PS will never win with heavy traffic

90 km tobe precise, and the reconstruction will start next year.

This is one of these rare occasions where you can see how it's really like to drive in Poland. Voice on is obligatory

I have some question concerning the S10

I read on the Polish wikipedia that the bypass of Stargard Szczeciński is to be completed on october 31st, 2009. Is this feasible, considering the latest pictures?

What is the completion date for the part from Szczecin (A6) towards the Stargard Szczeciński bypass?

Another thing I read on that wiki page is that the Stargard Szczeciński - Piła part (130 kilometers) is to be completed on december 31st, 2010. How feasible is that? As far as I know, construction for that part hasn't even started yet...

Not Aleja Roździeńskiego, but Aleja Górnośląska (Upper Silesian Avenue) althought, Roździeńskiego Ave also has interchange with Murckowska st.
