@ChrisZwolle
yes
@rakcancer
it will be open once they start and finish building it (only a small fragment is currently done and open, about 3km). They will start building it once they find money for it (next stage is a 5 km long fragment, with a bridge and it's going to cost a lot). Currently the tender is on hold (not canceled), but there's supposed to be news about whether there is enough money by the end of june

You, as SISKOM, should be first ones trying to push the government and not to excuse them everytime they fail with something important regarding nearby Warsaw motorway system.

The government must feel the pressure all the time, in other case they won't do anything in reasonable time. "Ordinary people" understand this simple fact, keeping in mind our "rich" motorway building history from '90 and early 00's

Last photo: is that toll plaza new? 2009 Google Earth imagery doesn't reveal it.

By the way, Stryków is probably the most famous small town nowadays

That toll plaza and maintenance yard right next to it wasn't there in 2008, it looks recently built.

I agree, as I've seen on polish subforum someone called it "centrum wszechświata" new Rome - where all roads go to...

Stryków is still pretty large compared to Konotopa with its 287 citizens...

Konotopa isn't even a village, it's just a street with some farms and a few houses alongside it. Piastów would've been a better name for the A2/S2/S7/S8 interchange. They also made the mistake of naming interchanges to tiny villages in the Netherlands. Some of them became well-known due to traffic information, but others are very obscure.

Warsaw - West is the one and only reasonable possibility.

Nothing substantial was announced today after the negotiations witch COVEC. It was announced that they proposed a solution to the problem and "new financial conditions", whatever that means. GDDKiA will now analyze the situation and we'll know something on Monday. Hopefully.

So there will be a long gap between the end of the A8 motorway at
Wrocław airport and Wrocław North interchange (5) forcing drivers to come off the S8 and go through Wrocław city centre to connect with the A8 at the airport interchange?
