With very little traffic it takes about 2 hours to get from Warsaw to Piotrków Trybunalski, during high traffic it could very well be up to 3 hours. I still prefer that to going through A2, since getting through Łódź can be a nightmare, but it's debatable which way is faster.

Bielsko-Biała - Frędek-Místek route (using S1) is definitely slower than A1 (Pyrzowice-Gliwice-Wodzisław Śląski-Bohumin-Ostrava).

I have noticed that broken down vehicles on the A2 near roadside telephones had lots of cones placed around them (usually about 10). I was wondering: are those cones stored in the same large box with the telephone or do people carry them in their boots with them?

No, these cones are carried by the so called Motorway patrol:

The opening of the (completed) border part of D1 has been postponed one more year due to the delay on the polish side .
It appears Poles will have to demolish the cursed Mszana bridge altogether and to build it afresh See Czech highways for source

Any comments on that from Poland? I'd like to see some Polish news article about it.

Unless they know something I don't, it's not true what they say about MA532 being demolished. It requires additional strengthening for safety, the documentation is being prepared right now, but generally speaking the bridge is okay and will be safe and fully operational once a few modifications to the design are applied. I think the realistic scenario is opening in August/September 2013. Optimistic - maybe in spring?

Here's some Polish news article with quotes from GDDKiA spokesperson:

When will they open it? It looks pretty much finished.

I still hope to catch a nice aerial photo of the Lodz-North interchange.

Well, I heard that it's going to be opened within next few weeks. Anyway, if you go north of Kutno, there are still places where the higway is not finished and even asphalt is not laid.

Awesome! I hope this helps Ukrainians feel more connected with Europe, in addition to alleviating congestion east of Warsaw.

Actually it is on the way to the Belarus border not Ukrainian. You mixed it up with A4.

Great news that the A2 Minsk Maz bypass is open when can we expect the whole stretch of the A2 between Warsaw and Siedlce constructed and open to traffic? Having this extra piece of motorway will alleviate the congestion in eastern Warsaw
