Nice map of alternative routes - I wonder if German authorities approved that.

AFAIR it's been like this for long time now. The quickest way from Wroclaw/Zielona Gora to the Baltic sea is through Germany.
Also, sometimes the best way to get to Zakopane is to takie diversion through Slovakia.

The font you are using for auto signs is very very weird. It looks sharp and it does it's job properly though just saying

How will they change Pyrzowice into a cloverleaf? Construct two parallel bridges?

I think they wouldn`t construct additional bridges.

Is there an intention to change Pyrzowice into a cloverleaf?

S11 will connect there from Poznan. So it will be either a cloverleaf or a turbine I suppose.

Simply take one earlier exit near Skierniewice and then head south to the S8 from which I can follow the S8 till Grojec and then take the S7 south? Or anyone has any other ideas?

And now I'll drive back from Radom to the Netherlands again... I haven't seen any updates about the DK50 interchange with the A2. I doubt it's open, but I still wish to verify? I am going to drive there wednesday if the interchange A2 - DK50 isn't open yet, I guess I'll have to drive the route which Luki suggested again. That route worked out fine but slows me down quite a lot more than just taking the DK50 as you can guess
I'll be driving between the S7 and the A2 at around 7-8AM btw..

Not yet. I don't have any information about when the DK50 bypass (including the interchange with the A2) might open.

It's part of this:

"Zakończenie robót do 30.04.2012 r."

As you can see they are behind schedule.

They were behind of everything, to be honest. But at least it seems they got back on the right track.

Construction speed overall is still quite good, maybe the deadlines are too ambitious / unrealistic. I've read about this bypass of Dorheim in Germany. A 2.2 kilometer 1x2 road. Construction time: 4 years, 9 months.

Sure, but isn't the German timetable absurd?

Contract for Żyrardów bypass was signed in July 2009 with deadline in July 2011. Since then we had several changes in design, chief of construction site and finally, main contractor. And it still "just" a GP 2+1 national road... This is far from what I consider "OK".

Usual time for construction in Poland is 2-2,5 years (unless there is a huge bridge) which I find reasonable. I'm not expecting second A2 Łódź - Warsaw "school", which was insane.

I will be able to test out the A2 (Swiecko - Warsaw) in a couple of weeks. Can't wait!

Shocking news!

TomTom Congestion Index

Quote:

Warsaw Most Congested City in Europe


TomTom Launches Quarterly Congestion Index to Identify and Address Congestion Hot Spots across Europe

TomTom today launches the first quarterly Congestion Index that accurately identifies and analyses traffic congestion in major cities across Europe. The report, initially covering 31 cities, finds Warsaw the most congested city in Europe. On average, journey times in Warsaw are 42% longer than when traffic in the city is flowing freely and 89% longer during morning rush hour. The TomTom Congestion Index, including individual city reports, can be found at www.tomtom.com/congestionindex.

The TomTom Congestion Index is the world’s most accurate barometer of congestion in urban areas. The Index is uniquely based on real travel time data captured by vehicles driving the entire road network. TomTom’s traffic database contains over five trillion data measurements and is growing by five billion measurements every day. The overall congestion level for all the cities analysed in Europe is 24% - meaning journey times take 24% longer than when traffic is flowing freely.

The top ten most congested cities, ranked by overall congestion level, between January and March 2012 were:

Congestion level:

1. Warsaw, 42%
2. Marseille, 41%
3. Rome, 34%
4. Brussels, 34%
5. Paris, 32%
6. Dublin, 30%
7. Bradford – Leeds, 28%
8. London, 27%
9. Stockholm, 27%
10. Hamburg, 27%

Warszawa is also the biggest construction site of Europe currently. It will improve once more works are done and new expressways open. Warszawa is the largest city in the European Union without a basic motorway network.
