Isn't it a typical 1940s Autobahn junction, which hasn't been much modified since ?

Right. This road was opened to traffic in 1937 nad reconstructed in 1996-1998 (km 3+827 to km 9+355) and 1997-1999 (km 9+355 to km 12+645). Exit is at km 9+185;

-------------------

Who said there's no traffic on polish motorways ?

Polish roads are pretty congested. That's why we need more motorways and less one lane roads that they like to call "highways." Every year there are more and more cars and the same roads.

Yes, that's true. Last year it took me an hour to get through Nowy Targ. The Zakopianska (S7) should really be finished soon, although I'm not sure if it was planned near Nowy Targ.

Who said there's no traffic on polish motorways ?

Where is it located ? I thought there are no more any sections with old german concrete... Or is it somewhere on DK18, not repaved part ?

No, I don't think so. The A18 is much worse and has clearly visible concrete slabs. Since pmaciej lives in Szczecin, I think it is the A6 or something (nice one for "Guess the highway"!)

This is last concrete part of S3 near Szczecin - between interchanges Kijewo (A6/S3/DK10) and Rzęśnica (S3/DW142).

Section marked with two blue dots, will be reconsructed in close future. Black dot means place, where the picture was shot.



Here you can find more photos of this section.

Now it is signed as S3, but after reconstruction and upgrade to motorway standard, it will be signed as A6.

And here you can find more photos by other users.

Yes it is near Sczecin, but it's not A6, but S3/S6

EDIT: As Maciek said

Do I understand well that:
- there are some highway streches built during WWII in Poland
- they're still in service and have not been repaved yet
??

yes there are some, but they have become very rare. The A4 was the most significant road who had these features.

Surprising for me. Anyone could post some pictures/info of those ancient roads...?

I thought there were some pictures posted before. I only made one pic driving there, see the top of page 24, I posted it there. I thought the roads were not laid during WWII, but before it, when the nazi's were building up an empire. I thought the A18 was laid in 1936 (and has obviously never been well-maintained)

I'd like to put the rocord straight:
1. All pre-war highways in Poland do have new road surface
2. Roads with pre-war concrete surface are either expressways(S3/S6 near Szczecin) or regular roads
2. A18 was built in 1936 and will be marked as a highway when renovated(till 2010)


Streches of Reichsautobahnen in Poland:

1. A6 PL/D - Szczecin (renovated 1997 - 2007) 21 km, asphalt surface, service lane

2. S6/S3 near Szczecin (old concrete surface) 8 km, no service lane

3. DW142 near Szczecin and Stargard Szczeciński (old concrete surface) 38km 1x2, ca. 3 km 2x2

4. A4 Krzywa near Bolesławiec - Wrocław (renovated 2006-2007) 92 km, concrete surface, no service lane

5. S22 Elbląg - PL/RUS (now beind renovated till 2008) ca. 50 km, 1x2 + ca. 3 km 2x2, asphalt surface, service lane

6. DK/A 18 PL/D Olszyna - Krzywa(A4) (renovated till 2010), concrete surface(new on eastern lane built 2005), service lane on eastern lane, 18 km marked as highway

Did you mean eastbound lane?
This motorway go from east to west so there are sothern and northern lane
or more correct tems of eastbound and westbound lanes.
