Yeah, the person, that approved that, must be reaaally crazy ) Two lines or some kind of abbreviation wouldn't be possible?

Also, I don't like to see those metal posts - are they somehow safer, than the classic old posts? In CZ and D, you can see on new signs another type of construction, which is light and not fatal when somebody crashes onto it...

Isn't that curve way too sharp? Also gradient of that slope seems to be too big. What will be the speed limit there?

It's because of the big zoom, nothing else.

Sorry guys for OT, but maybe anyone can tell me, when we have left Europe? Or i've missed something? Or maybe stop false propaganda?

We have a discussion on the Dutch-language wegenforum, and the situation about the future expressways in Southwestern Poland is unclear. For instance, distance signs on S3 indicate Jakuszyce as border crossing, while I have read on wikipedia that it will run to Lubawka. Also; what are the plans for the S8 from Wroclaw south? Will it also run to the Lubawka area, or towards Nachod?

The issue is how to connect the Czech limited-access network to the Polish network. Should the Czechs extend R10 from Turnov to Harrachov? Or the D11/R11 from Hradec Kralové towards Nachod or Trutnov?

Anyone knows how the situation will shape up in the next 5 years in this area?

Blame the locals, not the "ecological mafia". It's mainly the locals who are doing the NIMBY (source: Życie Warszawy).

I'm not sure what the [realistic] plan is, but geographically Nachod seems easier. Jakuszyce/Harrachov may require more bridges, and both areas (at least on Polish side) are similarly in the need of improvement.

Frankly I cannot imagine passing S3 anywhere near Jakuszyce. Germans failed/gave up in similar terrain (e.g. around Zweibrücken, in Sauerland, or even in much easier Eifel).

Possibly the solution for Jakuszyce/Harrachov would be a really long tunnel from the base of Bóbr river (where the terrain is absolutely flat) to the CZ side.

There are plans for R11 towards Trutnov and Lubawka on Czech side. And it's hard to believe that it isn't coordinated with Poles. The terrain for R10 is extremely difficult and it would cross several nature reserves as well.

As for NIMBY's, one time I was riding a city bus in Lublin on al. Spółdzielczości Pracy and was standing in the back along with two older men.. the avenue was in under construction (they converted it from one lane each way into two lanes each divided all the way from the borders of the city till al. Smorawinskiego) and it was a time when they were still fighting some NIMBY's.. and one guy said "Under communism everyone wanted roads but there was no money, now we have money and people don't want roads any more"

You have wrong information - A2 - ecological mafia
S2 - wrong prepared tender.

Locals have nothing to do with this.

I am all in favour of imaginative use of resources but this sucker begs the question whether the person designing this sign was human or reptilian.

I'm so ashamed of our Roads Agency that, having broken down one barrier ... ... they allow themselves to be faced with another, called stupidity .

It's like living in ... the Twilight Zone!
