Construction of 1x2 expressway is considered economically viable with prognosed traffic of 17.000, 2x3 - 70.000.
so in that case there would be no point for building motorways in Poland except ringroads of big cities. 50K/day is very high volume.

50k/day obviously, as I wrote, relates to a prognosis of traffic volume, not the current volume. It wasn't very clear the way he formulated it, but he was sure about the numbers.

Also, results of the newest traffic measurements (GPR2010) are not available yet, but based on the 2005 results, we should have reached 50k on the main corridors by now.

I drive A4 (Legnica-Krapkowice) and S1 (Bielsko-Cieszyn) very often and I must say that the difference is very big. On A4 I drive 140 km/h sometimes 150 km/h and it`s very safe. On S1 I drive 120 km/h , faster is risky becasue curves are not so mild like on A4, on S1 when you have a curve you feel you need to slow down , on A4 you completely don`t care about curves you can have the same speed on stright sections and on curves, on S1 you drive 130 km/h you see the curve and you feel you need to slow down
Even on A4 section Legnica - Wroclaw that doesn`t have emergency line I drive faster then on S1

............another case is that if you compare A road and S road , on A road you drive faster but you will not save much time compared to slower driving on S road , on the section Legnica - Krapkowice I tested the speed 140-150
and 120-130 and the difference was 15 minutes what is nothing for such a long section

From today on, there are more A/S 2x2 roads U/C than existing. 1328 vs. 1325 km.

Whole A2 to Warsaw U/C

It might be one of the best motorways in Poland and the most boring one to drive. Straight, mostly through the forests.

Amazing pictures nonetheless.

Yes. If I'm not wrong, the second one is with 150 m the longest in Poland.

Yes. It is likely it will also be marked as such, which for me is stupidity.
