There's a railroad tunnel under Biała Góra hill, in a town called... Tunel (railroad Warsaw - Krakow). 768 m long. There's a couple railroad tunnels on the Kłodzko - Wałbrzych line as well, although the line is out of traffic now. Maybe on some other railways in this region too.

As perhaps already known, new toll system will start in 2 hours from now on Polish motorways, expressways and national roads.
Operating start: 1st July 2011 00:00

VIAtoll

Yep, but it's not obliged for passenger cars as far as I know. It replaces the toll card for trucks, and I believe ViaToll is an option for frequent users (passenger cars) of Polish toll roads.

A2 will also be tolled from Konin to Stryków starting tomorrow.

This is a very imporant moment in system of tolling in Poland.

Only one small change in our law seperates us from introduction of tolling for passenger cars on expressways and other national roads. The infrastructure will be ready. And this system is really flexible, any road can be tollled with it.

The list is slightly (some 20 years) outdated, e.g. nbr 13 has been closed since 1986.

Why did they make this tunnel? A better approach than building ordinary noise barriers?

Much better for 10-story buildings close by. No ordinary noise barrier would protect them higher than the second floor.

Neaah... fraction of total cost. Worth trying, looks much better than traditional noise barriers. There are at leas three spots in Warsaw where we're gonna need something better than usual.
