Unfortunately for the map my monitor is only 22" and I can get maybe half of the picture in the view zone.

Got question and will be glad if someone answer it for me.
S8 missing part between left and right bank of the Wisla river in Warsaw - what is the current status of this part? As I remember it has full expressway profile with all two- level intersections. If so, shouldn't it be marked as expressway (S8), if not what is a problem with that section and when it will be an expressway?

It's not an expressway because technical requierments are not fulfilled.

The upgrade of the "Trasa Armii Krajowej" between "Powązkowska" and "Modlińska" junctions is due to start after opening of the Northern Bridge (hopefully late 2011 / early 2012) in order to ease expected traffic disruption.

Most administrative persmissions were granted and EU & domestic funding is secured.

got it. thank you and one more question if we talking about S8: how about eastern part from Marki to Radzymin? It is one of the most crowded road in Poland. Is there any solution in near future for this part?

Obviously an expressway-class bypass of Marki city is needed since... I remember.

Preperations for this project are on an early stage. Environmental Impact Assesment documents are ready (here, but only in polish: http://siskom.waw.pl/s8-marki-radzymin.htm). One environmental permission has already been cancelled after sucessful NIMBY-protest (although, to be honest, in my opinion not everything was ok with this permission).

Anyway, there is no funding secured before 2013. Hopefully, during next revision of national Road & Motorway Construction Programme for years 2011-2015 this urgently needed connection will find it's place as a priority. It deserves it.

A8 questions

2 questions about the A8-ring - I have been trying to read the Polish forums, but I am not sure I understand 100%:

What are the plans for the Eastern bypass around Wroclaw? Has it been designated with an S-number? I saw drawings illustrating a four lane connection at Bielany.

What is the current status of the A8 toll discussions?

1. So far there are no plans to build the eastern bypass of wroclaw as an S road. At the moment parts of it are being built as a single carriageway road, but eventually it's meant to become a dual carriageway road. From what i just read i can tell that it's gonna take at least 5/6 years for it to be completed. All bridges and viaducts are being built to hold two carriageways, right now, the bridge in Łany is almost done, a part of the bypass between Siechnica and Łany is being built. But apparently there's a problem with the connection of the bypass to A4, between Żerniki Wrocławskie and Bielany, someone didn't buy the land between them soon enough, so there's gonna be a big problem (as in bloody difficult to deal with the people) with fitting 2 carriageways there. So they changed the plan so as to connect Żerniki to Krajków, but the people of Żerniki protested, so they returned to the original idea. You know how it is We'll see what comes of all this.

2. As for the tolls, it is still unclear. For sure no PkW will have to pay, but so far it looks as though all LkW are going to have to pay with the 1st of July when electronic tolling starts. It's hard to tell whether this will change. Again, we'll wait and see what happens.
