Interesting, so actually a portion of A1 is under construction south of Łódź.

2800 meters of it I'm actually really confused why is this interchange built under S8 contract, since it was supposed to be ready after A1, but given the delays on A1 it doesn't matter anymore.
Good news about the rest of A1 Stryków-Tuszyn is that the contractor has applied for construction permits for all remaining sections, so hopefully they'll start construction in Q1 of next year.

Yes. It appears that the S8 could be extended east towards the S8 from Piotrków Trybunalski to Warszawa.

That's what I was thinking.

This however will not happen that fast. You can see that they didn't even bother to put two small toll booths at the interchange, but a big one before it (first photo).

Yes, this is to the west and the road which is going westbound is S8. The parallel one is A1.

Hello forum colleagues,

I am driving a few times per year between Ostrava (CZ) and Gliwice (PL) on my way from Brno to Poznan.

Can anyone tell me please if the PL A1 motorway is/or will be open soon between CZ border and Rybnik, I remember that section was under construction.

My next trip is in October and I was hoping to have a good connection between the countries.

Many thanks for letting me know.

Madalin, Romania

Unfortunately A1/D1 between Bohumin and Świerklany isn't ready and won't be this year. When D1 ends on the Czech side, just head for Polish border and DK78 towards Rybnik. In Wodzisław Śląski turn right on the third roundabout (there is a McDonalds by the first one, second one has this weird 8-like shape, third one is near an Orlen petrol station - that's where you take a right). Then straight ahead through the villages till A1.

Do you seriously believe it? Polimex (main contractor) is slowly dying. Unfortunately apart from A1 it also affects S69 from BB to Zywiec where not much is happening, most subcontractors already left.

I know we build a lot in Poland, but number of problematic contracts is staggering. I can understand one or two but it seems problems are popping up everywhere:
A4: (two stretches without contractors, the rest massively delayed),
A1: (three stretches without contractors, who know when bypss of Lodz construction will start as the main contractor is almost dead).
I won't even mention the famous bridge in Mszana
S5: (huge delays on Rawicz bypass),
S69: (huge delays, main contractor nearly bankrupt)

Let's hope there won't be any problems on S8 or S3. Especially that S8 is an important route.

I'm lucky I don't have to drive in Poland every day. All those failures would drive me mad.

I would not go via Ostrava to get from Brno to Poznan before completion of construction on the section you mention. I would go via Klodzko. After completion of construction and opening of the D1/A1, then I might go via Ostrava.

Cheers for info!
Is there any future opening date announce for A1/D1?

Which other sections of the A4 motorway between Szarów (DK75) and Korczowa can we realistcally expect to see opened in 2012? (not including the short Rzeszów bypass which opened yesterday). Or will we have to wait until 2013 to see more parts of A4 open?

Progress on this stretch of this motorway seems to be so slow

To be honest one shall admit that problems with three sections on A-1, one section on A-4, and S-5 are due to just one contractor.
