Many roads are setted as only ''after 2013'', so we can't be sure when it will be constructed, or even it will be constructed someday...

I can't believe all of those expressways will be built. Some of them are just to connect two small towns! Climate change and peak oil will probably hit just as the ribbon is cut on some of Poland's new roads...

You don't think they will find another fuel source than fossil fuels?

Some of them may somehow become motorways. I heard there was some political pressure on changing S8 from Wroclaw to Lodz to A8.

What will be final project ? Who knows.

i'm surprised that there is no planned motorway from Warszawa in direction Lithuania (Suwalki, Augustow). how strong traffic is at that route?

I hope so! I was being a little facetious, but compare the population density and road networks shown here with England's (or the Netherlands') and I think this proposal is very optimistic. Still, if they can build it all...

@x-type, there is planned second variant of expressway S8 ''Via Baltica'' from Ostrów Mazowiecka to Augustów by Łomża-Stwawiski-Szczuczyn-Rajgród. And first varianr of S8 from Ostrów Mazowicka to Augustów has to be as expressway S60, but it still plans, ideas of new government. However,this second variat is recommended by a specialists

That's truth. It's important route and should be motorway. I don't know the traffic numbers for it, but I think there is enough political reasons to build it.

I anticipate, sooner or later, it will be the motorway.

But for now there are other priorities in Poland. First, to connect existing parts with West-European Network and next, building the two corridors East-West and one North-South.

We want to have the motorways done till Euro 2012 in PL and UA. Even that will be very hard to realize.

construction works are progressing awfully slow so I wouldn't expect it finished by mid of 2009.
