Apropos Silesia: here are a few pics of the expresway S69 from Polish subforum. The road should connect Silesia with Slovakia (in Slovakia the motorway D3 to the city Zylina).

Graphics of the S69 (48 km) by wikipedia:


The road is built both in Poland and Slovakia at first half-profile.

This is Lesser Poland, not Silesia. It's only Silesian Voivodship, but this land is a part of Lesser Poland Only few kilometers near Bielsko-Biała are in Silesia.

But S69 connects the centre of Silesia with Slovakia, though it goes through Lesser Poland.
S7 connnects the capitol of Lesser Poland Krakow with Slovakia.

You most certainly have an active graffiti artist community there in Warsaw, don't you?

In this case ...


...the bridge is colorful but the graffiti isn't. I don't think I've ever seen that before, anywhere.

This is really good highway, and with a comfy car 200km/h is nothing special and it's safe.

In my metro area we got developed and efficient roads, expressway/highway in almost any direction, so I quite offen do up to 180 with my rubbish Lanos and it's not exiting when man gets used to it. What I found exiting was 200s on Gierkówka north of Katowice with Fiat Barchetta - very fun to drive toy on more demanding road. But still that's nothing. Once i rode Porsche Cayman - driver was moto journalist. He was doing 200 on empty but narrow two lane road in Warsaw's outskirts (I belive near Kawęczyn powerplant) with 90 degrees turn at the end. That was f...in crazy and a bit scary, but Porsche prooved to have superb brakes

"Millenium settlement" - about 30 thousand inhabitants on 2 square kilometers. One of them is me, and I really enjoy this place. We offfen call it 1000-city, that's where my nick come from. It's in the middle of 3 milion people metro area, but as You see it's green. So wealthy people that for some reason don't want to live in a house live here too - I got neigbours driving late model Audi, BMW, or Mercedes cars (imagine guy driving brand new MB CL living in commieblock ) And we got good roads around with virtually no t-jams, so it's still fun to own a car here

Beacause this is Poland - "nasze realia to anomalia" (our reality is abnormality) There are huge legal, political and god knows what other issues about highways/expressways in Warsaw area. It's common problem across whole Poland (except for Upper Silesia maybe) - there's money for road, but there's also some magic power that doesn't let them to be build in reasonable time. We're still in deep shit of soviet-alike burocracy.

Well, perhaps all gonna be built, for sure most of them (just that nobody knows when ) They connect all major cities, not small towns (well, comparing to London even Warsaw and Katowice metro areas are small ). Most of all Poland is important transit country, we got trucks from allover Europe here (+ turkish, from Russian Federation etc.), and that's why building modern, efficient roads is major issue.

I remember an acident in mid 90s on that ruote. Opel Kadett lost one wheel (suspension didn't make it), rode into oposite direction carriageway (no crash barrier), and frontally hit Opel Astra - several people got killed

Not exactly. Between Piotrków Trybunalski - Częstochowa it was ment to be highway, lanes are wide, curves are gentle, but they "forgot" to build flyovers. AFAIR it's "DK". Between Częstochowa and Sosnowiec its regular "DK" with a bit worse parameters, from Sosnowiec to Katowice it's "S86" (flyovers, tempolimit 110km/h), and south of Katowice it's "DK" again (good quality of pavement). Another part of Gierkówka is DK1/S1 (eastern ringroad of GOP), from Dąbrowa Górnicza to Tychy. That's better way when You go south from Warsaw, Łódź and want to bypass Katowice metro area.

I don't think so. Seems like black car is on main carriageway (note sholuder on it's right), and the blue one is on service road.
