I don`t think so
"Podgórska" would suggest that it goes to the mountain, which isn`t true
I`d rather call it "Austostrada Południowa"

anyway "Pomorska" is a very good idea

for A2 I would propose "Warszawska" (Warsaw Motorway), as it`s the only one to reach Warsaw + for S69 "Beskidzka" appears more suitable

I also call it "Poznańska" ;D
but it may change after reaching Warsaw
I think it`s difficult to name a 500km long motorway with one name, especially in country where the capital isn`t dominating

Some countries give names to their motorways, others don't. Personally I don't mind but here are some ideas

A1 = Autostrada Bursztynowa (Amber Motorway)
A2 = Autostrada Olimpijska (Olympic Motorrway) because of 1980 games in Moscow, Euro 2012 and alleged Warsaw's candidature in 2020 Olympics bid :P
A4 = Autostrada Południowa (Southern Motorway)
A6 = Autostrada Berlińska or Berlinka (Berlin Motorway)
A8 = AOW
A18= I don't know... maybe something like Lusatian Motorway

A18 Olszyna - Krzyżowa

There hasn't been much news about the renovation of this shameful road, has there?

No...

Maybe this summer, that's all.

That is a real shame. Piece of crappy highway going to welcome visitors traveling from west to see modern venues built for Euro 2012 in Wroclaw...

In 2012 this section will be in such an advanced phase of reconstruction that the old concrete will be already gone, so don't worry.

You can repave old concrete to very smooth asphalt within half a year. So there are still chances it will be completed before Euro2012, but I do think it should happen in 2011.

Is suggested it half year ago on A18 polish thread. Nobody liked the idea.

Because it is throwing money down the drain. Covering pre-war concrete did not work in case of other stretches of such roads because ashalt gradually filled spaces betwen the slabs and it was bumpy as it was before.

Besides, in case of A18 it is more to do than only repaving. Hard shoulder, drainage, fence - all this has to be done.

The damages of our image will be far bigger than the costs of this temporary pavement.

Other complex works could be done as soon as the temporary pavement will disintegrate again - I think it should last at least a year anyway.

They could also reduce the road to 2 lanes during Euro 2012. A bit drastic option to improve the image. The best would be to reconstruct it of course.

Why cannot you understand that during Euro 2012 this road will be already undergoing reconstruction? Surely it won't be finished by that time, but all the traffic will be moved away from the old concrete(not to mention it will be long gone by that time)

2012:
