Damn GDDKiA wasn't kidding when they fired the contractor on A4 west of Dębica for doing nothing!

Upwards of 300 km/h -- in a F1 car. On roller-skates, maybe 30 km/h. I guess the posted speed limit should probably be 70 or 80 km/h.

Some possibilities:
- two sections of S8 toward Bialystok
- A4/S19 Rzeszow bypass
- S7 second carriageway of Kielce bypass
- A4 Tarnow bypass
- S8 near Wroclaw
- S11 near Poznan
- a few sections of the A1 between Torun and Lodz
- two sections of the S8 between Piotrkow Trybunalski and Warsaw

Did I miss any?

There is no chance to open S7 second carriageway of Kielce bypass. S11 near Poznań too, because this construction is cancelled.

Thanks. What is the status of the Kielce bypass? I just had a look in the Polish language thread and it seems unlikely to open this year. Is that right?

That last sentence is bizarre! What do you mean? there has been more kilometers opened so far this year than the Polish annual average over the last decade.

A bit over 200km of new A/S roads opened this year. Last year we had about 300km, so this year we'll surely beat that by a large margin (it's gonna be approximately 400-450km of new A/S roads by the end of this year).

The cancellations are of contracts, not projects. They will be built by other contractors (typically with many but not all of the same subcontractors). While there have been many delays, there has also been tremendous progress. As metacatfry correctly observed, the number of kilometers of motorways and expressways opened just so far this year exceeds typical numbers for whole years -- and there is quite a bit more which will open this year before winter sets in.

It's true that some road sections which had been planned to open this year will instead open next year, for example the S69 between Bielsko-Biala and Zywiec. That's just the nature of highway construction. Delays occur everywhere -- even in Singapore. It would not be reasonable to assume that everything will always go exactly according to plan.

correct. there are so many unpredictible circumstances druing construction works, so I could say "the delays" are a part of them.

Of course, even Germans face delays, look at the ongoing saga of the new Berlin airport

However I'm disappointed by number of problems on two of the most important roads in Poland; A1 and A4. There are many delayed stretches, more and more contractors are getting bankrupt or just kicked out.

Especially A4, road which they were planning to open for Euro 2012 will be open probably just in time for Brasil 2014

That`s right, S7 won`t be open this year. Real date to open this section of S7 expressway is sprint 2013. The main reason of delay is old coal lead which was located near carriageway.

The Kielce bypass is normal national road now, the "S" was deleted at the beginning of second carriegeway construction.
