I thought this part of S8 will be reconstructed along with construction of S7 towards Lomianki because it would be easier to work on both at the same time. BTW does anyone knows how S7 will be connected to S8 via Wislostrada or newly designed northbound route?

We recived huge EU-help for reconstruction of S8 and have to spend it till 2015.

Is the EU money specifically for the S8 within Warsaw or for any part of the S8?

Go via either Vienna or Bratislava to Brno, then to Gliwice, then to Wrocław, then Poznań. The new D1/A1 motorway at the CZ/PL border should open before Euro 2012. A significant section of the S5 under construction between Wrocław and Poznań is due to be completed in October 2012 and which I guess will probably be opened temporarily on a limited basis for Euro 2012. The trip should take about 10-11 hours, but there could be extra traffic because of Euro 2012.

This particular grant is for S8 in Warsaw. First phase of this project is under way (right bank of Vistula, section Modlińska - Piłsudskiego in Marki). Second is the tender announced (left bank of Vistula + bridge, section Powązkowska - Modlińska).

That was what I suspected. Thanks. I'm looking forward to completion of the S8 all the way from Warsaw to Białystok.

I wonder if construction is as advanced at the other end of the A1?
i.e Maciejów - Piekary Śląskie as it is supposed to open before the end of December 2011
The construction photos on the website are always out of date whenever I look

Nice update, thx for the photos, are you sure it is actually Lysá Hora on the picture? But yeah what else than Beskydy it could be... Well its a lucky shot actually, you dont se Beskydy even from Ostrava every day... I am so looking forward to this opening, finally all the way on motorway, almost from one house door to another.

So far so good. They are working like crazy. Actually probably the biggest problem right now is keeping up with supplies (gravel, sand, concrete etc.), apparently the railways used to transport resources to the construction site are working at their full capacity. We are very lucky this year with the weather, it's incredibly warm and dry for this time of year (but it's probably about to end any day now, also it's possible the winter will hold until late April, so we'll see). But right now it looks very much like a possibility that it's going to be "drivable" in June. Which is quite incredible to be honest. Try to spot the difference (look at the dates):

Yes, this is from section A (near Łódź), previously built by COVEC, now by Eurovia.

The construction of Lublin ring road in the S17 chain may be initiated

The construction of two segments of the S17 expressway, which are the north-east ring road of Lublin, will cost approximately PLN 1.1 billion. A Spanish company Dragados will be responsible for their construction. The agreements that have been signed today closed the tender procedure for the construction of almost 67 km long S17 section from the junction in Sielce near Kurów to the Piask ring road.

The Spanish company offered the best price for the construction of two S17 segments between the junctions: Dąbrowica - Lubartów and Lubartów – Witosa, of the total length of almost 23 km. A two-pavement expressway with three lanes between the junctions Dąbrowica and Lubartów (on the common route of three expressways S12, S17, and S19) and two lanes between the junctions Lubartów and Witosa (with a reserve for the third lane). Over a 3 km long section of the national road no. 19 from Lublin in the direction of Lubartów (a two-pavement road with two lanes) will be rebuilt. 51 sections of access roads (with the total length of over 48 km) will be constructed for the purposes of local traffic. The investment requires the construction of 30 engineering objects, including an almost 1 km long flyover running over the valley of the Bystrzyca Jakubowicka in the vicinity of the area Natura 2000 that is valuable from the environmental point of view. Over 24 km of acoustic screens will be constructed. The contractor will have 24 months from the date of signing the contract to open the route for drivers' use.



More information on the section between the Dąbrowica and Lubartów junctions

More information on the section between the Lubartów and Witosa junctions



The most important information on S17 at the section Kurów – Lublin – Piaski:



The construction of 66.8 km of the expressway has been divided into 5 contracts. A two-pavement road with two lanes for each direction and a reserve for the third one (between the Dąbrowica and Lubartów junctions in the ultimate configuration with three lanes) will be constructed. It will be possible to access the expressway through 11 separated junctions: Sielce, Kurów, Przybysławice, Bogucin, Dąbrowica, Jakubowice, Lubartów, Włodawa, Mełgiewska, Witosa, and Świdnik.



The scope of works includes the construction of:

- over 69 km of expressway (including all links and a section of S19) and over 11 km of GP and P-class roads

- 79 engineering objects

- 66 passageways for animals (large, medium, and small-sized)

- over 130 km of access roads for the purposes of local traffic

- over 60 km of acoustic screens

- 4 rest areas



Time of accomplishment - 24 months from signing an agreement for each contract.



Let us remind that the construction of the S17 expressway Kurów – Lublin – Piaski is co-financed by the European Union from the Cohesion Fund within the Operational Programme “Infrastructure and Environment.” The value of the project amounts to PLN 3 561 958 989, while the EU subsidy amounts to PLN 2 618 844 965 (85% of eligible costs).
