There is one mistake with S3. This expressway exists now between Sulechów and Nowa Sól bypass. On the map there is white line. The S6 Goleniow-Koszalin has different routing etc

I wouldn't care with such maps from newspaperes - our own, made by SSC user, is much more reliable.

Some news from GDDKiA website: http://gddkia.gov.pl/en/a/10512/The-...not-threatened

15-02-2012
The construction of the A2 motorway, section C is not threatened

On Wednesday, 15th January a meeting of the General Directorate of National Roads and Motorways officials with representatives of the consortium Bogl and Krysl and DSS, companies constructing the section C of the A2 motorway from Łódź to Warsaw, was held. The aim of the meeting was to gain information concerning reorganization within the supply of materials for construction in winter, to which the consortium was obliged two weeks ago, and information on how lodging applications concerning the bankruptcy of DSS, announced by its sub-contractors will influence the contract accomplishment.

The consortium B&K and DSS informed the ordering party that the day before it had reached the required level of daily supplies of materials for the construction. 20 thousand tonnes of sand and 10 thousand tonnes of aggregate daily is an amount that allows to conduct the construction after the winter period in full and with accordance to the expectations. B&K ensured that it had financing guaranteed for the material supplies.

With reference to information on the applications of bankruptcy of DSS lodged by its sub-contractors, DSS informed that it had already signed agreement with some of the sub-contractors, as a result of which the applications are to be withdrawn, and with other sub-contractors there were negotiations going on so that – as DSS stated – they reflected market values.

We will have asphalt on the A2 for Euro 2012

With reference to the today article in The Rzeczpospolita entitled “For Euro 2012 the A2 Motorway Will Have no Asphalt Layer,” the General Directorate of National Roads and Motorways informs that on the 91st kilometre of the A2 motorway from Łódź to Warsaw there is an asphalt layer on the section of over 70 km.

The progress in placing asphalt layers on individual sections is as follows:

ROAD BASE:

Section “A” 81% - 23.65 km
Section “B” 92 % - 15.64 km
Section “C” 37% - 7.4 km
Section “D” 94% - 16.54 km
Section “E” 100% - 7.1 km
– total of 70.33 km

BONDING LAYER:
Section “A” 43% - 12.56 km
Section “B” 41 % - 6.97 km
Section “C” 16% - 3.2 km
Section “D” 93% - 16.34 km
Section “E” 99% - 7.03 km
– total of 46.1 km

In places where there is still no the last, outer asphalt layer, it will be placed in spring, in accordance with the schedule and technological requirements.

In accordance with the contracts for the sections “A” and “C” concluded in summer 2011, works are to be completed on 15th October 2012, however in both cases the suitability for driving is to be ensured for the Euro tournament. Additionally, the contractor of the section “C” (consortium of the companies DSS and Bogl and Krysl) is obliged, on the basis of the contract, to put all asphalt layers (including removable layer). On the section “A” – the second section abandoned by the Chinese consortium Covec – which according to the contract ensured during the Euro tournament traffic on a bituminous layer, the contractor (Eurovia) is ahead the schedule and the majority road base layers has been already covered by another layer, the so-called bonding layer. In spring the contractor plans to finish the route with the removable layer.

Tender for the construction of Tczewska junction on the A6 motorway

The new junction will be constructed on the current crossing of the motorway and Tczewska Street (the first flyover over the motorway going from Kijewo junction in the direction of Świnoujście). Works related with the junction construction should begin in mid-2012 and their completion is scheduled for mid-2013.

Within the investment a double flyover along Tczewska (Nowoprzestrzenna) Street and junction connectors will be constructed. Since autumn 2011 modernisation works have been conducted on the motorway on the over two-kilometre-long section in the area of the future junction. Old German concrete plates are replaced with new bituminous surface. Works on the motorway are linked with the construction of Nowoprzestrzenna Street and the road network near the region of Tczewska junction that are being accomplished by the city of Szczecin. After their completion, inhabitants of Szczecin Dąbie and Wielgowo will get a possibility of separate access to the A6 motorway. It is also planned to close a dangerous cross-road of the S3 road with Goleniowska Street and entrance to Rzęśnica junction from the direction of Wielgowo. Earlier on, a tender for modernization of a bridge on the A6 motorway over the Chełszcząca river together with access roads, situated northwards from the planned Tczewska junction, was also announced.

The construction of Serock ring road along the national road no. 61 was given co-financing from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)

On 27th January 2012 the European Commission officials issued the decision approving the financial contribution for a large project “The Construction of Serock Ring road Along the National Road No. 61”

The sum with reference to which the level of co-financing of the priority axis VIII “Safety of Transport and National Transport Networks” of the operational programme for a large project is applicable amounts to EUR 46 225 971

The investment is being accomplished in Masovian voivodeship, the poviat of Legionowo, in the territory of the town and municipality of Serock. It consists of the construction of the ring road of Serock along the national road no. 61 and a new section of the national road no. 62. Together with the construction of a two-roadway ring road and a one-roadway section of the national road no. 62 there will be flyovers over or along the ring road, junctions and access roads, road safety devices, and environmental protection devices constructed.

The national road no. 61 constitutes an element of an international communication network from Warsaw, through Łomża, Grajewo, and Augustów to a Polish-Lithuanian border crossing in Budzisk. The aim of the project is to improve the traffic capacity and the quality of this route for national and transit traffic.

The planned investment consists of altering the route of the national road no. 61 on the section that goes through the town and municipality of Sercok. The construction of a ring road on the section westwards from the existing national road no. 61, outside the area of high-density housing will lead to:

The improvement in the access to interregional and international routes for transit traffic;
Moving the zone of negative influence away from the area of the most dense housing by means of moving the streams of car traffic not heading to Serock as such (which is the case in 90% of traffic) to the new route, which will significantly improve living conditions of Serock’s citizens;
Shortening of journey time;
The improvement of road safety, elimination of dangerous spots and improvement of the comfort of the long-distance car traffic with high speeds;

Beneficiaries of the investment will be inhabitants of Masovian voivodeship and drivers of cars and trucks in local and transit traffic.

A1 Pyrzowice - Gorzyczki

Most of the active participants here read Polish much better than I do, so I hope someone will correct me if I've misunderstood. I've been trying to read the A1 Pyrzowice - Gorzyczki thread in the Polish language forum and it seems that the current expectation is that this section will open in late May or early June. Looking at recent photos, I don't see any chance of a March opening.

Anything that’s at the mercy of the weather runs the risk of slipping behind schedule. While a March opening looks increasingly unlikely, it is not totally out of the question. If I were to have a flutter at the bookies, I’d say end of June.

Time will tell and, of course, we will keep you posted.

But are they really going to open all parts of A2 from Łódź to Warszawa before opening of Euro 2012? I can't belive it.

The problem with A2 & A4 is that they are relatively far from their old routes DK2 & DK4, which means they are only useful in their entirety for through traffic. Otherwise it's hauling back and forth from the DK to the autostrada all the time to bridge the missing links.

It's still possible, but probably not the greatest idea to rush with this... There are already some serious concerns about the quality of roadworks - fractures of the AC surface have been reported.

That's true. But it will already be a huge improvement if all sections of A2 apart from section C will get opened. Also it's not really a big deal if some parts get delayed by a few months or even a year - we've been waiting for those motorways since forever, so as long as they are U/C, we can wait a little longer

The cracks huge sinkholes in A2 even made the Dutch newspapers yesterday. The news read: "The motorway specifically built for Euro 2012 already has cracks".

As if that is news. Every asphalt motorway has cracks somewhere, you can easily repair that, worst case scenario is a few meters new asphalt.

The media is trash. People read it because there are no alternatives. Everyone involved in a particular subject knows the media often exaggerates problems, makes loads of errors or publicizes non-news as "news".

It depends on how deep are those crack/sinkholes. It's not normal, for instance, to have 30 cm deep holes in a newly opened road. This is news.

According to the Polish highway authority GDDKiA is just a small crack in a section where two layers of asphalt poured on different days connect. Nothing to worry about, but the press are wildly speculating A2 won't be ready on time. (On time for what, a few soccer matches? As if that's the only purpose of this motorway).
