Twisted logic. The city does exist regardless it's called Wrocław or Breslau. Does the canal La Manche not exist for the islanders because they call it English channel?

It certainly is in Polish language. The same like Breslau in German or Vratislav in Czech (for Wrocław).

In relation to signing the locations abroad, I think that the road signs in Poland should have both Polish name and its local equivalent, e.g. "Lwów (Lviv)" or "Lwów/Lviv", and not only the foreign names.

Most of the world -- even most of Europe -- know the city as Lvov. We can disagree about whether global convergence toward English is good or bad. I don't think there is much disagreement about whether or not the international dominance of English is increasing.

Lvov is Russian, Lemberg is German. Lviv is Ukrainian and should be also in English.

World use Russian name. I don't understand why for example PKP use Lvov instead of Lviv.

I think it should be: real name / local name: Lviv (Львів) / Lwów or Wrocław / Breslau.

There is a lot of things that should have been done in our country.
BTW. When is the remaining stretch of A1 towards the Czech border due to be open?

The whole road is dual carriageway, with two lanes in each direction. But on 8, from Piotrków Trybunalski to border of łódzkie and mazowieckie voivodeship (at 94,3 km long stretch) there's reconstruction to 2x2 expressway, planned to be ended at may. Intersections are generally in one (ground) level.

So the whole E67 8 between Piortryków Trb and Warsaw will have full grade seperated interchanges?
Look forward to seeing it open in May

No, part between Warsaw and Mszczonów (around DK50) is not being upgraded to an expressway right now. Also, I wouldn't count on it being ready in May - autumn is more likely.

Parts of S8 may be ready earlier. In general - we'll see, some new roads should be opened before the summer officially starts (22.06)...

New sections of the A1 north and south of Katowice should open in May. In general, there will be many, many kilometers of new motorways and expressways opening in 2012.
