Starting once again?

Zgorzelec is quite a big city by the highway and Jędrzychowice in where the border checkpoint used to be. I know it's stupid but cannot help it

After the last highway section will be opened, new signs may indicate Dresden, not Jędrzychowice (hope so)

Poland should get rid of the orange background on its traffic signs. Orange makes it hard to see the red border and the black symbols inside the signs.

But, anyway, why does Poland use orange background on the signs?

Oh, my... Look into the FAQ...
Ooops. we don't have a FAQ about polish motorways So I'll answer here:

This is a german-built autobahn. Built in 1936. During communist time it was never renovated. Ever. In 2004-2006 they finally renovated it - made a new pavement and renovated bridges. But to widen it to modern standards (I mean to add emergency lane), it would require reconstructing all the bridges and overpasses. There was not enogh money to do it. They only added short stretches of hard shoulder every few kms just to be OK with the regulations. There is a speed limit of 110 km/h where there is no shoulder.

I think it will have to do for the next 20 years. After that this part will definitely need to be rebuilt to 2x3, with total reconstruction of all bridges...

You mean the A4? If yes, there is no such section. Every km of A4 is renovated

Still, I can show You the S6 road, which has original 1937 road surface:

It's an exception in Poland, as it it always was named a motway, as E2rdEm said

No... In polish section sli, who has some connotations with GDDKiA(General Managemet of National Roads and Highways) said that it will occur much fater, even withing 3-5 years, as it will be rebiult into a toll-motorway, which requires building emergency laneand ofcoure widening all flyovers(recent ones are original ones and were only renovated in 2006)

Electronic. I hope "Europe" will be wise and make some kind of standardification for electronic tolling systems. You don't want in like 20 years to have 15 kinds of electronic boxes in your vehicle.
