I think you should show Chris the plan of future connection between A1 and A4 in Gliwice Sosnica. Quite nice - 3 level, and three roads crossing, not two.

Interesting. It looks like this interchange will be very incomplete, some connecting roads only have a fly-over, instead of connection roads to the other motorways.

Yes. But THREE roads interchange. I am still thinking it was necessary. Wasn't it be able to be solved in better way ?

Speaking of interchanges. Here is one on the newly opened A1 south of Gdansk. Notice a very thin road-like path from SW corner of the picture going over the bridge and in NE direction. It is a walking path. Very cool.

So there is no motorway or even expressway to your capital? Why is that?

It will be, but in longer term. We are building, take it easy.

But my question is: why you don't plan to build motorway South Poland - Budapest ? This is something we would need.

Maybe because the High Tatra's are kind of in the way. Via the future D3 and D1 allows you to travel between Silesia and Budapest.

The Tatra area is very small. I think it's more because of their Slovak priorities - roads West - East direction.

When we go south we have no alternative. Road to Bratislava isn't one of them.

And I am not talking about Silesia only.

Try to find good way from Krakow to Budapest. You won't.
And I know what I am saying, I spent a lot of time in Krakow area.

True but a road from zakopane to lysa polana (border PL - SK) will be widenened and repaved starting in early 2008. This will definately help with at least getting to the Slovak border in somewhat semi-confortable style.

I think one day they will build a motorway from Kraków via Presov and Kosice to the Hungarian M3.

But a straight motorway from Budapest to the north through Slovakia? I doubt it, it goes through very natural area's, like the low tatra, fatra, slovak paradise etc.

Hmm...as Chriszwolle said there is D3 which is currently U/C and of course D1! Not to mention planned R3 and R4 that should be expressways.

Yes of course, priority is to connect West and East because of the economic situation in the East part of Slovakia that depend on proper connection with the other parts of the Slovakia.

Road to Bratislava isn´t one of them? There is D1 that joins North-West of Slovakia with Bratislava...

You don't know what they are planning on D1 through Fatras on direction west - east. Two big tunnels 8-10km long every or so.

I actually meant the area south of that. The area between Banska Bystrica and Poprad.

But the best route is probably via Kraków - Ruzomberok - Banska Bystrica - Zvolen - Budapest
