Is there any plans for extending S19 through Hrodna and up to Vilnius?
Also, any plans for S6 from Gdansk to Vilnius?

Nobody would want to pass those intensive border controls with Belarus while there is an all-Schengen alternate route nearby. I don't see Belarus joining Schengen anytime soon, so I think it would be best to focus on PL - LT routes rather than via BY.

S19 goes to the Belarussian border and stops there. There is about 350.000 people living in Hrodna. Even if it wouldn't be an effective route for traffic between PL and LT it would still carry some traffic from Hrodna to either PL or LT.

Yeah it will be. But when? It's at now called S61. It's got few DŚU for few bypasses and there is one tender for part of Augustow's bypass but it's all at now. When it will be build? "After 2012". So... we'll wait for Via Baltica a long, long time.

DŚU is "decision about the influence on natural environement", it means we know where the route will pass and that Ministry of Environement said it`s ok

Another great project by hermann kirchner.
this is in such a confined space and so many piers and abutments in close succession. a few push launch bridges aswell, amazing!

progress looks slow but you can see its taking shape

What a great job. excellent bridges and concrete works. that push lauch bridge over the river ! beautifuul splayed piers.

WAS THERE A BIG FLOOD IN POLAND AS IT LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THE BOX GIRDERS WAS IN THE WATER ON THE RIVER BANK?

i see also the south of france got flooded too near nice.

Alot of poland is so low lying, this problem will allways come. lets hope all the new motorways are designed to allow for these flood events or you guys are in for some trouble down the line.

Hopefully these jobs wont be held up too much

If because of that opinion you choose to call me "green hero" or any other silly adjective, it is your choice, but first those kind of hiperbolic speaking gets you far away from truth, secondly it don't give more strenght to your own opinions to wich you are entitled to, thirdly any further conversation with you seems futile, which is good because it is indeed probably not a good forum for that.
EOT

i kind of agree where you are coming from. Just look at the hidtory of motorway construction, there is allways controversy.

In Ireland we ruined alot of areas because of short sightedness and not listening to public.

1. carrickmines castle on m50 motorway around Dublin. They knew there was something there as regards Castle ruins but went ahead and had massive hold ups while construction was being carried out.

2. Tara skryne vally on m3 motorway ( Clonee to Kells ) consultants said move motorway from this area, Authority went there own way.

3. Kildare bypass was built through a "Fenn" recognised by EU as aregistered habitat and the whole waterway was drained and the road runs through that area in a "waterproofed" cut to avoid it flooding.

In Polands quest for progress, Just remember you can wipe out alot of beautiful areas too, when moving a motorway design away can save alot of hassle and delays at construction stage.

Your motorways are great though. some great expertise being used.

what a bridge in wroclaw. those temorary piers in the river are just as difficult to construct as the bridge itself.

the finished segmentally balanced cantilever bridge is amazing

great photo's. I see there is alot of earthmoving. have you any photos of the
machinery.


I have noticed its quite unusual to have big earthworks in Poland due to flat nature of the land.

who is the main contractor on the project?


Keep up the photos

Here's an interesting report courtesy of TVN Warsaw regarding the construction of A2:
http://www.tvnwarszawa.pl/-1,1661518...wiadomosc.html

My Polish is extremely elementary, so Google Translate is always helpful to have. There's an interesting video included too showing some of the efforts, all of it in Polish, but you can guess the jist of it from the visuals.

I've never really considered it before, but in making many of these new roads, you have to take into consideration a lot of unexploded ordinance from the Second World War. These would naturally have to be cleared out of the way before laying down new routes. In making Poland's future, one can't ignore the debris of the past.

There is a rather sad story about those pylons you can see at the end of the video. Those were built in the seventies, they were supposed to be a part of a highway that has never been built, over a high-speed railway that has never been built either. Thirty years later we are finally going to get the highway, but a fast railway connecting north with south is not even planned as of today...

From Gazeta.pl Łódź:

Construction has officially started on the "Węzeł Stryków." This will be the main intersection between A1 and A2 outside of Stryków.

Here's the scene:




As mentioned by Blaskovitz last month, it should be ready by 2012, if all goes to plan.

Like last year I will be driving from Berlin to Poznan next month. Is the A2 motorway finished a bit more than last year or is it still under construction from the German border until Bolewicko?

It's still the same. I don't think we'll see a completion of A2 in western Poland earlier than late 2011.

The whole stretch of A2 between border and Nowy Tomyśl (where the existing part of A2 ends) will be opened for traffic in December 2011.

Unfortunately, the said part of the A2 will not be ready by next month .

Also, because of the construction work, you can expect severe disruption to your journey in several places where the A2 and DK2 cut through or run alongside each other. If you intend to go to Poznań, I would allow up to 2 hours lost in frustrating queues, bypasses and single-file traffic.

This year it is best to avoid DK2 at least as far as Trzciel.
A very smart move would be to fly.

If everything works fine, May/June 2012 - just before football games.
