It is not tolled now yet, isn´t it? How will the tolling look actually? I did not notice any boots or anything when entering A1 from A4, and will they toll it just when they connect A1 and D1? There is also no place for tolling boots at the border, or am I wrong?

There will be toll places both near A4 and near border. A1 in GOP (katowice agglomeration) will be toll-free and then again from Pyrzowice (airport) tolled as far as it reaches Gdańsk.

When you enter A1 from A4 there will be a PPO (toll plaza) not far from the intersection. Toll boths are not there yet, but the plaza itself is ready (you may have actually noticed it - there is a concrete surface in that place). Another PPO will be about 5 kilometers from the PL/CZ border.

Europa is not one country. Deal with it, and consider it while planing road trip. We are independent states, and we should have right to decide how we want to create our law and such details like road signs. Personally I don't like people, who I don't know, and I don't vote (like European Commission) decide about anything that apply to me.

Thanks for the info. When is the tolling expected to take place? Once the motorway is finished all the way from the czech border to the airport? Later? Or even earlier?

Not before the elections this autumn, that's for sure
If I were to guess I'd say A1 will be tolled from 2013, but I have nothing to support that belief.

You will pay for using the A1 at toll plazas where you will be filtered through one of several toll lanes.
Between the CZ/PL border and the A1/A4 interchange near Gliwice there will be two toll plazas, one at Godów and one just south of Gliwice:



A1 in the south, showing toll plazas south of Gliwice



Currently, the Gliwice toll plaza is ready but not set up to take payments, as shown in the pictures below. The last two pictures show the most likely configuration of future A1 toll plazas. It's pretty standard stuff. As for the time frame in which you might expect road charges to be introduced, my guess would be within two years of completion of construction work on the remaining stretch of the A1 near the CZ/PL border, that is, by 2014, allowing several months' slippage for the odd election along the way, as toonczyk pointed out.

Thanks for the info. I did not noticed the large concrete area, it was late evening, snowing/raining and I was tired after long journey...

I guess also the exits (junctions) will be equiped with booths...?

If both the A2 bits on both sides are finished, I'll Finally do Rotterdam-Warsaw in 1 day rather than sleeping at a motel in Torzym for a night. Still remember the old days ( when there was only the small 2x2 bit and then small highway bit between Poznan and Konin) when I was still a kid that the Poland part ( border to Warsaw) of the journey took just as long as Holland-Polish border.

Can't wait to have a decent road to ride to my family to rather than being stuck on those congested roads on either side of the A2.

What I can see there is an empty space for toll plaza and none of it.
The same situation as on A2 and A1. First motorway, then toll.

It's hard do predict the exact order, because many contracts are delayed due to floods last year. For example S1/S69 in Bielsko-Biała should be almost ready, but isn't. I think the next section to be opened will be A1 Rowień-Świerklany (~7km), but not sure about the exact date.
Here is a list of all A/S roads to be opened this year, prepared by our statistics expert bebe.2006:

Thanks! When will the first segment of A8 around Wroclaw open? I see it was supposedly to be completed in 2010.

[B] Forgotten pylon. [/ B]
jsat 01-04-2011, last updated: 31-03-2011 13:25


The newspaper "The Republic" reported that, as reporters learned that the contractor of motorway A1 section Grudziądz-Thorn made ​​an error in the investment. On the bridge over the River Vistula forgotten to build a pylon! In this connection, the bridge is not suitable for adoption of the highway traffic after the opening. GDDKiA now examine the possibility to order building the two pylons supporting the bridge Italian company Berluska. In order to accelerate the implementation of this investment on the Italian company want to change the river course in the building time. Vistula will be placed to a new trough, two kilometers west of the present course. This will allow the intensification of construction work, so that the entire highway was ready for EURO 2012.
