this is slightly off-topic information (not my first one)

anyway,

I have just got the newest audi navigation disc (2011 edition) - already on sale.

can you imagine how much I am surprised with it ?

the south stretch of A1 starts in Wozniki (near Czestochowa) and goes all down to Czech border. other words according to Navteq (disc vendor) this route exists and a nav unit calculates trips based on non-existting roads.

as I understand the present situation near Wozniki is different what Navteq presents. near Wozniki there is nothing more than some sand which in no-so-closed-future will be utilized for A1.

what is more I understand there are some gaps from Wozniki to Czech border, but according to Audi (Navteq) you can take it as preffered road.

there are some other roads already marked as existing, which unfortunately exist only in Navteq data masters' minds. Warsaw part of S8 is another example, but this would be opened soon ...

anyway,

funny thing is that 5 years ago I reported Navteq some inconsistences with the roads close to my place and still they are not corrected, on the other hand Navteq guys reproduce maps which would be valid no earlier then 3 years from now.

last thing,
Poles would not take the proposed route (calculated by the nav unit) seriously, but I am not so sure of foreigners (unless they are ssc infrastructure readers)

Can anyone visualize on a map for me which section of A8 around Wroclaw opened exactly? I think it is from the southern end (DK8 near Magnice) to the Airport (Granicza road), but I'm not sure.

A8 to the airport is going to be opened in January. This short section, to the A4, is a kind off a New Year surprise

Good going Poland! Two new stretches of expressways open before the end of 2010 (S8 & S3). Looking forward to many more openings in 2011.
Happy New Year everybody

Let's be clear about this: The A8 starts/ends at the interchange with the A4
goes past Wroclaw's airport, over the Oder river, past Wroclaw's northern suburbs and ends at the E67 on the eastern edge of the city.
It is crystal clear from the video that the newly opened stretch of road from Magnice to the A4 motorway is expressway and not motorway as it clearly says on the road sign S8 E67 not A8 E67
25th Jan 2011 is when the A8 from the A4 to Wroclaw's airport is going to open

TAK dla dozwolonych 130 na drogach ekspresowych
Why there is not 130 km/h speed limit on your expressways?

Btw, happy new year to Poland and Polish people up there a few km from where I am now.

No,

as of today:

S = 110
A = 130

as of tomorrow:

S = 120
A = 140

what Matz32Z wants:

S = 130
A = 160

Hi all,

And how it looks like at the moment (how many km is completed now)?

Thanks a lot,
