Whether given asphalt is 'cold' or 'hot' does not depend on the air temperature it is being paved at, but how it is made.

15 degrees plus are generally said to be needed for concrete not asphalt.

Construction starts about next month and it's said to be opened in 2012 I think.

Actually it does. Unless you WANT to be the one with a jackhammer, breaking apart a substantial mass in the back of a dump truck (Up to 15 tonnes of it)...

Concrete isn't as finicky, since a special "cold weather" mixture is used, that allows less water to be used. A good portion of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada's SW ring road was paved with concrete over the winter, in temps well below -25C on average.

Poland isn't Canada, so I'm not at all familiar with the guidelines for paving there. I know that the country has a similar climate, which is why I based my previous post on local guidelines used here.

But yeah... Hot mix asphalt is used during the summer months, Cold mix is for temporary patches, and is, at least here... WATER SOLUBLE...

Kapsch won a tender for building and managing (for 8 years) Eletronic Toll Collection system in Poland. Cost 4.9 billion ZL (around 1.6 billion $). It will be delivered by July 2011.

Contract will be signed within a month.

Err, Ive lived pretty much my whole life split between Poznan and Winnipeg. The climate is certainly not similar. And Canada is such a large country, its hard to make a blanket statement about climate for it.

Only for trucks though. (vehicles >3.5 tonnes). It replaces the toll card.

I'm sure many Polish drivers are eager to pay tolls if they don't have to

By the time this system is introduced, A4 Gliwice - Wrocław will be tolled, so drives will be able to choose which system they prefer, on condition this piece of news is true because it was written just in some newspaper.

Which sections started construction? S7 near Kielce, A1 to the Czech border, and A2 Lodz - Warszawa?

Plus ca. 60 km of A4 near UA border, making the 22 km long section right at the border the only one that is not U/C. Still, it will be in a month or two.

It's good! I saw photos of abandoned bridges and viaducts of "Olimpijka" in the moment of their destruction. "Olimpijka" in Poland was a symbol of economic fault of socialism.

Looks awesome, when is the exact opening date? Will the A1 feature 2x3 lanes all the way to the Czech border?
