What is the problem?? Surface, alignments, signage?
If it is problem with the surface what is it? Cracks, are plates uneven, is concrete too rough?

I haven't driven it but you are seriously first person complaining so much.

I suspect that this is probably the source of Road_UK's dissatisfaction. Driving on asphalt is more pleasant when it's in good condition but in Poland concrete is needed because of the freezing. Asphalt over concrete is probably optimal, but rather expensive.

The A4 from the german border to Szarów, and soon Korczowa is, and will be of no lower standard than the motorways in the rest of the EU. The same can be said about all motorways being built in Poland in the past years.

Anybody who tells me that the infrastructure in Poland hasn't greatly improved in the past 5-10 years shouldn't be taken seriously. Hey, the numerous pics in this thread prove it !

Sorry, Road UK, but that is just spamming around.

Sure enough, every new motorway in Austria 'fall under exellent new highways'

They do, apart from the road signs. Like in most European countries, one can

A cloverleaf seems somewhat meager compared to the huge Gliwice-Sośnica interchange.

How many existing km's of motorway does Poland have now, and how many is U/C currently? It should be close to 1600km/1300km.

Any news about when A1 will be completed until Gdansk? I drove there and back on the weekend, I saw 5 accidents, one was my own (police crashed into me). I've driven all around Ukraine, and I never saw so terrible driving habits like in Poland. People think 3 cars can fit on 2 lanes, and if you, as a driver going in your own lane will not move to the right (risking to hit any obstacle, car or even people there) then you will crash. It's insane.

I don't know what you have it about actually. I drive few times a year the route NL CZ through PL (Wolvega to Ostrava). Last time two weeks ago. My route goes through Berlin A13 and A15 in DE then DK18/A18 in Poland, merging on A4 by Boleslaviec.

The DK18 direction from DE to PL till Boleslawiec is indeed in terrible state, poor, old and rumbly, dangerous for your car. The A18 and A4 on the other side is superb motorway. There is certainly no problem with the surface of this motorway. The only problem there is, is with the missing hard shoulder which is replaced by emergency safety bays. Therefore the speed is reduced to 110 km/h. However everyone drives around 130 there. After Wroclav I guess comes the hard shoulder.

If all the motorways in Germany would be of this surface quality I would not complain.

btw. I noticed that foreigners often pronounce Wroclav as Wroklav thinking that c pronounces as k in e.g. club. Pity that no one uses the name Vratislav anymore .

That's the nature of the Polish pronunciation, which is quite different from other European languages. I don't think many non-Poles can correctly pronounce places like Łódź, Rzeszów or crazy Świętochłowice.

I guess that in every language you can find expressions which only native users can pronounce correctly.
