@mcarling - I understood. But opening ther northernmost "red" section of the S11 doesn't make any sense if the one out to tender isn't built ! Is there any particular difficult infrastructure building to be expected there ? Like a huge tunnel or bridge ?

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

I disagree. Why wouldn't open section if it is ready? Even if it wouldn't take much traffic until opening of the remaining section it can at least serve some local traffic. Do you think leaving ready road close would have more sense?

I was in Poznan in August, but I didn't explore the path of the section out for tender. I think it's more likely that they proceeding with the bids they liked and declined to start with the sections with less attractive bids. Sometimes the ordering of construction is not optimal -- until the prices are considered.

... than opening a road to nowhere ? Hmmm ... Hard to say ... Without the mentioned section, it doesn't make any bypass to anything and shall only bring a lot of traffic from Oborniki to small, local roads...

I don't know Poznań that well ... Lots of real estate there, maybe ?

Only small section from Zakrzewo to Dąbrˇwka is road "to nowhere". But still - it's ready and maybe some local traffic can use it. Dąbrˇwka interchange will be connected to A2 before Euro 2012 (then the whole thing will have much more sense ).

Answering your previous question - middle section was victim of protests of local people, and then lack of fundings. Don't know when will construction starts.

Probably there's been lots of pics from the A2 [Świecko - Nowy Tomyśl] section already posted here, but today I came across some nice aerial ones (part of the motorway close to Świecko).

Nice ! Hope they'll also demolish the former border crossing in Świecko, but from what I saw a couple of time ago, not really...

A bypass of the existing border crossing is planned, but that won't be built in the near future.

Are there are more motorway openings planned once the new A2 section to the Polish/German border is formally opened in 2 days time?
Like an extension of the A1 from Maciejˇw interchange to DK911 in
Piekary Śląskie at the end of December for example? From the photos I've seen on the website it looks possible for this section to be opened before the end of 2011

Are you sure about that each of these lanes is 3.75 metres wide ? It doesn't look like it...

Maybe it's just an optical illusion
