Well, the name was assigned in the early twenties to a boulevard-like section that today is in the city centre, and it was preserved as the ugly commie post-war Warsaw grew.

On a more positive note there are still several motorways/expressways opening next month:

A1 (Bełk-Świerklany - from the photos on its website looking ever nearer to completion)
A8 (E67-Wrocław airport - from the photos on its website looking ever nearer to completion)

S8 (Warsaw western ring road - which looks impressive and very close to completion already from the photos on its website)
S3 (Myślibórz-Gorzów Wlkp)

So lets look forward to when the above roads open in Dec 2010

Actually continuation of Aleja Krakowska in City of Warsaw boundairies (called Aleja Krakowska and Grójecka) look more like 'aleja' road type:





Raszyn suburbs rapidly grew in early 90's during transformation from communism to capitalism, when government had more important issues to care about. Currently there is a lack of goodwill to change the situation.

It may sound like a dumb question, but is there a road number for the North Bypass in Krakow?

S7 passes by the east side of Kraków. This road will connect A4 and S7 (thus be a part of the full ring road of Kraków). I guess it will receive some DW-number one day.

Do you guys think the Kraków ring road will be finished earlier than the Warszawa ring road?

This particular section shown will be DK94 (national road), the rest - a DW(local road).

Hard to say... On one side Kraków has less to do (more than 3/4 already exists or is U/C, compared to ca. 1/2 in Warsaw), on the other - Warsaw ringroad has bigger priority, because, as you said, northern section of Kraków ringroad will be a DW and thus funded by local goverment.

IMHO it will be changed over the time hopefully.
It's only speculation of course but keeping 3/4 or ring road as national roads (S, A, DK) and 1/4 as DW (province road) is ridiculous.

Coś mi tu jednak nie pasuje. O ile pamiętam to ekrany przezroczyste miały być stawiane na obiektach inżynieryjnych, a tu proszę. Widać najpierw ekrany przezroczyste nad torami kolejowymi i łącznikiem do Smolca, potem są betonowe, a w głębi znowu przezroczyste:



Ciekawe dlaczego. Przecież jak miasto chciało przezroczyste, żeby na stadion był widok, to GDDKiA kazała dopłacać. Zajrzyjmy więc co jest za tymi ekranami:



Jak nic moje osiedle . Czyżby developer zapłacił, by mieć reklamę? Przynajmniej będę widział kiedy do domu dojeżdżam
Ale czy takie ekranu nie maja gorszych właściwości tłumienia hałasu?

Czasami jeszcze inne elementy bliskiej mi okolicy widać, ale to tylko do czasu:



A tak wygląda AOW zabetonowana z dwóch stron. Prawie jak w tunelu:



Ale widok na lotnisko jest otwarty, widać je w głębi. Po prawej stronie dwa niezamieszkałe budynki. O ten biały była kiedyś sprawa z komornikiem, którą właściciel wygrał i dostał odszkodowanie. Można powiedzieć, że na szczęście bo mieszkać chyba by teraz tam nie chciał:



Z innych prac, to montowane są jeszcze bariery energochłonne:



Malowane jest też oznakowanie poziome. I jeszcze ciekawostka. Po co jest robione takie "lotnisko" bez pasa zieleni pośrodku?

The last picture seems to be an emergency crossing. In case of a road closure (accident, roadworks), traffic can be diverted to one carriageway.

No, it's not. The (removable) crashbarrier will be added soon.

Some aerials, A4 x A8:

Bialystok Bypass

Does anyone know when the reconstruction of the northern bypass of Bialystok is expected to be completed?

very good news for those drivers who can't wait for Warsaw S8 (Konotopa - Prymasa Tysiąclecia section).

it is already open !!!!!!!!!!!!

now seriously:

I was surprised visiting today website map24.pl (Navteq engine and navteq data). it shows this route, although it is not taken into consideration during route calculation.

looks like it is quite close to open it.

Now if I want to know the other delivery dates firstly I would be checking navteq data.

Hey, I'm gathering some information about roads in Poland and I hope you could help me.

I found a map with existing motorways and motorways under construction but I'm missing information about traffic on them.
Can you get me some information about traffic volumes on motorways in your country for year 2009 or even 2010 if it's possible?
I tried to search for it in http://www.gddkia.gov.pl/ but I couldn't find anything useful...

Thanks in advance.
