It is true, that from aesthetic point of view DK19 should be renamed as DK9. One of many inconsistencies that happen in every country.

But, on the other hand, DK9 is in my opinion one of the most underestimated routes in Poland. It connects south-estern Poland: Reszów and never finished, yet important Central Industry Region (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central...Region_(Poland) with future S7 i.e. Warsaw.

The economic heart of Poland lies in north-central, central and south-central Poland, and prosperity od peripheral regions depends on their connection with it. That is why an upgrade of DK9 to maximum GP-class would be much more reasonable than construction of S19 between Białystok, Lublin, Rzeszów and national borders (bypasses of these cities are needed for yesterday).

Looking on progress on the construcion site I hope it will be done maybe 6 months or more earlier. It depends how hard this year winter will be.

A2 Świecko - Nowy Tomyśl

New page Autostrada Wielkopolska A2. There is info that whole concrete layer is finished on stretch Świecko - Nowy Tomyśl (106km).

Opening on 01.12.2011, stretch Świecko - Rzepin is toll free and Rzepin - Nowy Tomyśl will be toll free till 21.05.2012.

Concrete paving on the whole A2 Motorway section to Świecko completed!

06.10.2011 - 11:29

It is only two months left until the official opening of the A2 motorway leading to the border with Germany. We can already announce the completion of concrete paving on the whole over 100 kilometres long section of A2. In this extremely short period of time, we were able to make this difficult task possible. The total area of the concrete surface is as many as 2 mln 265 thousand square metres, which is equal to the size of almost 300 football grounds! The estimated cost of the whole investment came to 1 billion 298 million Euros. 25% of this amount, that is every fourth PLN, was spent on environmental protection, i.a. on the construction of animal passages or noise barriers. The Development Company - A2strada and General Contractor - Strabag corporation were laying the concrete paving at the rate of 1 kilometre per day under favourable weather conditions. Due to that, the motorway will be available for use as soon as December 1st this year, that is half year before the date fixed in the contract with the government. Good news for drivers – the drive through the passage between Świecko and Nowy Tomyśl will be free of charge until May 2012.

Official opening of the last sector of motorway to Świecko as early as 30th November this year!

05.10.2011 - 13:37

With the start of December, the long awaited launching of the last sector of A2 motorway, connecting Poland with the network of European motorways will take place. First drivers might use the possibility of a fast ride to the border checkpoint in Świecko already on December 1st this year. For the first half-year, the usage of this over 100 kilometres long section of A2 motorway will be free off charge. The fare collection will start with the beginning of May 2012.

I didn't try to read the Polish language version, but the English language version has a more realistic date: "The fare collection will start with the beginning of May 2012."

The way those motorways swoop around Small Town Poland is just unbelievably beautiful!

If I'm correct, the Karty opłat drogowych (road toll card) applied to all DK-roads, but ViaTOLL so far for only a small selection of DK-roads which are not motorways. Isn't revenue dropping with this?

Actually, with the road toll card someone had to compensate for all the truck traffic driving for free on the private motorway stretches, which meant that the state had to pay out a lot of money to the concessionaires. This sometimes cost more than the road toll cards were bringing in (that was the case in 2008 or smth), in other years they didn't make much profit either. With viaToll the revenues are much higher, 180 mln zł in the first 3 months, expected to turn into 400 mln zł in 6 months, and this amount will grow with more users, more roads in the system and less people using free routes (time is money).
If anyone wants more exact numbers, here they go:

road toll cards
Costs Revenues Year
694 mln zł 608 mln zł 2008
657 mln zł 815 mln zł 2009
417 mln zł 626 mln zł first half of 2010

viatoll (plans)
Costs Revenues Year
1281 mln zł 404 mln zł second half of 2010
275 mln zł 929 mln zł 2012
451 mln zł 1868 mln zl 2013
367 mln zł 2230 mln zł 2014
428 mln zł 2409 mln zł 2015
506 mln zł 2483 mln zl 2016
341 mln zł 2550 mln zł 2017
215 mln zl 1303 mln zl first half of 2018

at the moment revenues from viatoll are what they were expected to be.

I don't understand why the dividing line on Polish roads is white, same as the others. Seems like it would be easy to get confused and go into opposing traffic, no?

Not really, that's pretty much a standard in Europe. Actually, I've never seen a yellow dividing line (with other markings in white) outside of North America.

It can sometimes looks confusing on photos in North American eyes, but when you drive somewhere, there's no confusion. I've never felt confused or asked myself whether I was on a single direction or two-way roadway.
