Lol, Zylina. My Slovak language teacher would kill you for that, but maybe in Polish you write it this way. Anyway, thanks for information. When is this expressway supposed to be finished?

How about some pics of one more bridge opened in 2007?

It's the bypass of the town Konin (approx. 200 km west of Warszawa). The road DK25 across the river Warta:

Yeah, true. Also I remember it was called 'motorway of death'

Regarding the driving skills and the traffic-rules following of the average Pole, I'm not surprised. (based on my own experience)

Actually it was the TERRIBLE technological condition of the car, which,sadly, being very common in Poland, is the main guilty party.

Ofcourse other factors like speed do matter, but with f.eg worn out, 10 year old tires nothing will prevent from accident

Well, I've seen few Lada's and old Fiat's, which are surely 10 years old. It is of course much better now than back in the nineties.

And how about all these imported cars from "old" EU? Majority of them is really bad maintained - cheap, secondhand counterparts, unprofessional repairs, cars after accidents, mentioned tires...

Before I went to Poland I heard that I would see lots of trucks with secondhand cars going from Germany to Poland, but I didn't see any. In Poland I saw quite some Audi's and BMW's, with Polish plates, so that's a good sign. And about the bad maintained cars: you don't really see it from the outside, so I don't know.

Actually the peak point was 2004 -2005, now there aren't many

2005 - 850 000 imported cars
2004 - 2005 - 1 700 000 imported cars

Ladies and gentelmen, boys and girls,

here's A1 near Warlubie.

Some maps for better orientation.




WD77, direction north.








View from under WD77 in a northerly direction. WA76 in the background. In the foreground - shiny crashbarriers.


WA76, direction south.




WD75 direction south.


WD73, picture shot from road leading towards WD74.


This is WD74.


WD73 again.






In the background you can see WD74


And this you can see, when you turn around.


This is WA81, not shown on the map.

I often drive the A1 (E30) in the eastern part of the Netherlands, and the road is full of trucks and car trailers with second hand cars, but they do not have Polish plates, but Belarussian, Russian and Ukrainian plates.
