Well, I don't think so. The OP's text in the initial post reads:

Sorry? Unfortunately I don't see a connection with my previous comment.

Ah yes, sorry about the confusion...

Nevertheless, I hope the provided stats may be used to get a more comprehensive/balanced picture on the air pollution in PL (emmissions decrease vs. ongoing GDP growth and motor cars increase).

This may be a stupid question, but I'm not really following this thread. Looking at the latest map - is Grudziądz-Toruń open? When did that happen?

Yes, Grudziądz-Toruń opened roughly about a week or so ago. If you look back through this thread, you probably should be able to find the exact date.

Offical information about A1 Grudziadz-Torun: http://gddkia.gov.pl/article/9986/mo...o-be-continued

Quote:
Motorway A1 Grudziądz – Toruń opened for traffic. It is going to be continued.

Motorway A1 on the section Grudziądz – Toruń (62 km) was put into traffic on Friday 14 October 2011. Its construction started in August 2008 and lasted for 27 months. With the moment of its opening the drivers will have 152 km of a motorway at their disposal and will be able to overcome the route from Toruń to Gdańsk in only 70 minutes.

Motorway A1 is one of the most important communication routes of Poland and the continent. It will join seaports of the Treble City with Upper Silesia and the southern part of Europe. The section between Nowe Marzy and Czerniewice will become an alternative for the crowded and leading through various localities national road no. 1. It will have a strategic influence on the economic development of the region, creating advantageous conditions for new investments. It will also influence the decrease of number of road accidents in the region. From the statistical data of the police in Pomeranian voivodeship it turns out that thanks to the opening of the first, northern section of the motorway the number of road accidents on the national road no. 1, parallel to A1, decreased by over 20%.



Within the scope of realisation 10 mln m3 of earthworks have been executed, 300 thousand m3 of concrete has been used and 1.3 mln tonnes of blacktop has been laid. For the three successive building seasons, in the topmost moments of works, there have been 4.5 thousand people present on the construction site, including over one thousand of people employed by the general contractor, the company Skanska-NDI. 500 of various machines were working at the construction as well as 500 transport vehicles. The earthworks included building-in of a new lane of the motorway from the node Nowe Marzy to the node Lubicz (51.72 km) as well as passages through the Vistula river in the vicinity of Grudziądz.



Within the scope of II stage of the construction of the motorway A1, a bridge over the Vistula river near Grudziądz has been built, having 1 954 metres, which is the longest bridge in our country. Furthermore, within the scope of works a partly realised section from the node Lubicz to Czerniewice has been modernised (10.7 km) together with completion of the construction of bridges over Drwęca and Vistula river near Toruń.



Pursuant to the project, 5 new motorway nodes have been built, including Warlubie node, built on the route of the I stage of the investment (put into use in February 2011). On the newly opened section between Nowe Marzy and Czerniewice two nodes will be active - in Lisewo and in Lubicz. The remaining two nodes (nodes Grudziądz and node Turzno), will be put into use in 2012, after building local connections to the motorway exits. Within the scope of the venture 4 pairs of rest and service areas (RAS) have been built – in Malankowo, Drzonowo, Nowy Dwór and in Nowa Wieś.



Consortium Gdańsk Transport Company, in which the following companies have respective shares: Skanska Infrastructure Development - 30%, John Laing Infrastructure Ltd. – 29.69%, NDI Autostrada Sp. z o.o. – 25.31% as well as Intertoll Infrastructure Developments BV - 15%, from 1997 has a concession for the construction and operation of the motorway A1.



Scope of works:

bridges over Vistula river - 2
bridge facilities - 49
bridge facilities for modernisation - 14
facilities for demolition - 1
rest and service areas - (RAS) - 4 pairs
road nodes – 5 (including Warlubie node in stage 1)
maintenance areas (OUA) - 1
toll collection points (PPO) - 1
toll collection stations (SPO) - 4
earthworks - 10 000 000 m3
quantity of concrete - 225000 m3
quantity of blacktops - 1 300 000 ton

Technical data

number of lanes: 4, every 2 in each direction
lane width – 3.75 m
surface - bituminous

Excellent video quality and a fantastic stretch of the road. The only bit that I didn't like was where the road turns left quickly and the speed is reduced to 100, otherwise a masterpiece of a road. Your lane discipline is pretty good too.
