There's no longer "Węzeł Stryków". It has been renamed as "Węzeł Łódź-Północ" (Łódź North) since 2011.

The most recent pictutes I've found came from mid April.

Thanks. Are there signs that indicate the name of Łódź Północ?

According to this website, A1 Kowal - Stryków should've been completed 30-04-2012. When will it open to traffic?

A1 Kowal-Stryków is supposed to be ready in July, but on one of the sections (C again - it has to be some kind of jinx!) the main contractor (Poldim) filed for bankruptcy... I'm not very familiar with the situation there, maybe someone else can estimate what are possible dates of opening.

That question has just been answered in the polish thread... in English. So here you go:

However with the bankruptcy of Poldim, who was building the road part of Sójki – Kotliska subsection it is not any more possible that the full Kowal-Stryków section will be open even this year. Eventually some other subsections of this section may be open until June-July, but for sure not the whole Kowal-Stryków section.

About the Toruń-Kowal section. It originally had due date 30 September 2012, and now it's said it has 2 months delay. So I'd guess the whole section will be open till the end of this year. However guys on the forum say some of it's sections have bigger delays, so it's also possible just some of it will be open this year.

Right, thanks

Some more questions regarding A1;

As far as I know Pyrzowice - Zabrze-North is nearly completed. When will this open to traffic (together with a short section of S1)?

Second, is there more known about the cable-stayed bridge at Mszana? I'm assuming this won't open before the summer.

Thirdly, is there any news on the Stryków - Pyrzowice front? As far as I know this was supposed to be some kind of PPP-project, but I'm wondering why construction hasn't commenced yet, especially the Stryków - Tuszyn section seems urgent to me, keeping in mind the construction of S8 will be finished in 2014.

It`s sure that Pyrzowice-Piekary Śląskie will open to traffic 29th may. The S1 section will be open in this time too. As for Zabrze North - Piekary, it is said to be open in the end of may, but there are many construction works to do yet.

This is not a PPP project, but design&build. For the time being almost everything is ready to commence works, but it will probably take another two months or so.

Stryków-Pyrzowice had been a PPP project, but it failed and design-build tender for most urgent Stryków-Tuszyn section was conducted. Tuszyn-Pyrzowice is now being designed too and it is under analysis for possibility of new PPP tender.

I had picked up on that nuance which is why I asked - was wondering if the cameras had a variable "trigger" point which changed to say 70kph during the night.

And before a speed camera there have to be warning sign.

Things with speedcameras have only recently changed for better. Before that, cameras were mostly used to generate quite an income for districts that put those by their roads. It was leading to absurds like 7m PLN annual income (~1,75m €) in a district with population around 5-15k. But to earn like that, you had to hide speed camera in some bushes or trashcans...

Now it's like it should have been from the start - you know that there will be camera, so you have plenty of time to slow down, and drivers dont feel like they're being hunted.

We're starting to get a bit euphoric about the possibility of A2 being ready (passable) in three weeks. They are making huge progress, the pace is unbelievable. But still they'll need at least 15 rain-free days to make it, so we'll see how it goes.

Looking at today's quantitative progress report in the Polish language forum, sections B, D, and E look like they can be open in time. Section A looks unlikely (to me). Section C looks hopeless (to me), but maybe I'm too pessimistic. I agree that the progress is now rapid, and I hope it can all open before Euro 2012.

The "podbudowy", I assume that is the "sub construction" or foundation of section C, is at 81% and increased 8% in the past week. I also doubt it if section C will be finished in time, the other segments are indeed at an incredible pace. Section B got 30% of its SMA wearing layer in just the last week and is now at 81%. Section D even 38%.

On www.gddkia.gov.pl You have to click "Serwis GDDKiA" and then "Fundusze Europejskie" (European Funds).
