I'm not entirely sure, but I checked Polish Wikipedia and noticed the last eastbound gas station is just west of Konin. This means there are no gas stations for the next 200 kilometers to Warszawa. It may be a good idea to advise motorists about this situation. No gas stations and no way to exit. It wouldn't surprise me if the Polish roadside assistance will have to refuel stranded vehicles on this section.
Rest areas should be opened within two weeks, but there will be no petrol stations (they are planned to be opened in late 2013). So only parkings, restrooms, some benches and playground for kids. I'm not sure if they will manage to open all rest areas on sections A and C next week, but there will be at least 2 rest areas (in each direction) between Grodzisk and Stryków ready. As for exits - I think interchange with DK70 should be operational from day one, I don't know what's the situation on section A. Interchange with DK50 on section C probably won't be opened until July.

There is a petrol station about 30km before current A2 ends, so it's gonna be about 120km between last petrol station on A2 and Warsaw (and finding one within the city might not be that easy either). I hope there will be proper signs informing drivers that they are passing the last petrol station for another 120km, but even with the best possible signage I'm sure there will be some people who run out of fuel. Let's hope this doesn't cause any dangerous situations.

Ah, right, MOP Chrząstów. There is an Orlen in both directions. Google Earth imagery doesn't show it yet.

Google maps is showing A2 already, apart from the stretch Stryków-Dmosin.

They didn't draw Konotopa junction but have already drawn part of non-existent S2. What a mess...

Yes, Google screwed up, but I'm happy that they are taking a more pro-active approach. Let's see how long it takes for them to fix it.

S7 Radom Bypass

It seems like the S7 bypass of Radom has been out for tender for about two years. Does anyone know what's going on?

Yeah, we're out of money
Back in late 2010 when the financial crisis hit us, many tenders were canceled, but Radom bypass was one of those few that weren't. There was a slight hope we'd get the money for it, unfortunately that never happened.

As far as I know, Google & partners were asked by the authorities to get their finger out and update their on-line maps in time for Euro 2012. It's quite amusing watching the A2 and other main routes grow longer day by day at breakneck speeds.

It looks like the A2 will run from PL/D border to Warsaw by this weekend, at least virtually. And it won't be long before reality catches up. It's almost like watching a good film. Pass the pop corn, please ...

Insert Polish Joke.
