Any update on a opening date for the A1 between Zabrze (Wieszowa) and Katowice airport? From the photos on the website for the A1 Pyrzowice Sosnica it looks more or less finished and ready to open

Is it just me, or do they put lampposts every 10 m or something? I have never seen lampposts that close to each other. Is this the result of some kind of regulation or law, just like alle the soundwalls?

When it the next motorway/expressway opening in Poland? The original plan called for a ton of openings in March/April/May, but so far we haven't seen a single one in 2012.

The best summary available, made and maintained by Hetman.

Termin zakończenia wg kontraktu - date of completion by the contract
Termin oddania do ruchu * - revised date of completion
"x" in red circle means that contract date is 100% unreal and revised date is unknown

A bit off-topic, but I noticed there are many "gated communities" in Warszawa, new developments which outsiders cannot enter by car, because there is a gate. They include both apartments and detached housing. Why is that?

"Gated community" what a nice name for a ghetto...
I personally see no advantages in living in such place

Kind of huge OT and sorry about that, this is rather discussion about public space planning, design of new neighborhood, etc. but...

Sometimes people would like to close themselves in fake better world, where there are no car thieves, no annoying offensive graffiti around, every one has parking space, etc.
I could understand that people would like to feel safe in terms of their own small public space but at the same time they destroy the neighborhood.

Nevertheless those kind of communities are being build because there is such a need "on the marked". Sad but true.

When you ask people, they'll tell you that they feel safer when there is a fence around their flat, gate at the entrance and a guard sitting in a booth. But obviously statistics don't support that - you're as likely to get your house robbed in a "gated community" as anywhere etc. I happen to live in a housing estate like that and as far as I know I'm the only person around here (out of a few hundred people) that thinks it's a bad idea. Recently a zoning plan has been finally proposed for our area and our "local" street is planned to be converted into a public road for everyone to access (which means - no more gates). This caused some serious protests in my community. There is a lot of smart and reasonable people here, but they just seem to completely ignore all arguments in this regard. Apparently many sociologists from western Europe have been studying this subject, it's something very specific to the Polish people - something in our mentality. Weird stuff.

I've never seen a gated community in the Netherlands like in Poland, though apartment buidlings are basically the same. No outsiders can enter the hallways and front doors unless you have a key or are buzzed into the building.

By the way, are there parking norms in Poland? Like a formula that sets the amount of parking spaces for each type of development?

AFAIK this is determined in zoning plans, but I don't know if there is any standard regulating this. Zoning plans determine how many parking spaces are to be provided for each type of development. For example in the zoning plan of my area it's determined that there are to be 10-18 parking spaces per 1000m^2 of offices, 15-25 per 1000m^2 of shops, at least 1 parking space for every 60m^2 of residential real estate etc.

The problem is that as of a few years ago there was pretty much no binding urban zoning. So for example in Służewiec Przemysłowy, office district of Warsaw, many office buildings were built with insufficient number of parking spaces and as a result every centimeter of sidewalks and lawns in the area is treated as a parking by people working there.

Right now it's ~63zł (15 EUR), but will get more expensive when the western section becomes tolled in May.
