These are from A1 Gdańsk - Czech border near Ostrava
Section Gdańsk - Swarożyn(25 km)





















The road ends as yet 25 km from Gdansk, but consecutive section is now U/C(ca 65 km)

Are those yellow signs a new kind of signage, or a temporary situation?

not yet. First part(9.1 kilometres) will be ready by the end of April 2008. Skanska is going to finish second part(Kórnik bypass- 5 km) in the middle of 2009.

When it was being constructed(1973-1977) in Poland there were no such thing like expressway at all All 2x2 and more were all called 'fast traffic roads'(or sth like this)

Now it is a proper expressway with 'max' 110 km/h

Already with junctions, yet some sections were 2x1 and almost all of them were rebuilt into 2x2 till 1989. Last 2x1 section was rebuilt during major overhaul of the bypass in years 2000-2002 At this time a few 2x3 sections appeared
