I think I understand. Having two turnoffs from a motorway in close succession would be undesirable. However I don't really see in the polish A1/A2 any such problem. In the second link, if traffic had run in reverse, it would have to negotiate a bad situation with very close turnoffs for traffic going left and right. However neither the design of the polish turbine nor the design in the first link, if run reversed, would have the same problem as far as i can see. So this problem seem to me to have more to do with the length of the off ramps and the distance between turnoffs, than the 'direction' of the turbine.
I'm sorry if I have misunderstood, I might very well have.

PS Although, after some more thinking I think I can see the space considerations make it easier to fit those considerations in in a 'correct-way-around' turbine. And the polish A1/A2 does have some very long turnoffs.

A short movie. From Lublin to Piaski, an express way S12/S17 begins in 1:50 of the film. You can see a lot of sound barriers.

Yesterday was opened expressway section of S7/S51 bypass of Olsztynek - 12km long.
Due to final works, there will be speed limit 70km/h. It`ll take about two weeks.

I'm wondering about the following projects.

* A18 Olszyna - Krzyzowa: any news?
* A4: which sections will open first?
* S7: Kraków bypass, any news regarding the Wisla crossing?
* S5: Gniezno - Bydgoszcz, when can we expect construction?
* S1: Tychy - Bielsko-Biala, when will this link be constructed?

Not on the priority list. Hopefully, someone shall decide for 2+1 option on one carriageway;

* S7: Kraków bypass, any news regarding the Wisla crossing?
As many other projects which are ready to start, awaiting for:
- results of tenders announced for ongoing projects which lost its general contractor (we need to finish what we started first);
- possible realocation of EU money from rail to road sector;
- choosing which projects should receive funding first;

* S1: Tychy - Bielsko-Biala, when will this link be constructed?
Preliminary studies ongoing. First maps: http://www.s1.myslowice-bielsko-biala.pl/
In my opinion: 2020+

When will the S51 be extended northwards to Olsztyn and opened to traffic?

We have first wise decision from our Ministry of Environmental Protection regarding infamous noise screens built along our highways. According to new law noise limits which were so far one of the most strict in Europe are going to be lowered. In result there will be no needs to build sometimes gigantic size of noise screens in the middle of nowhere. Now it can be replaced for example by planting dense bushes or trees. Other decisions regarding above topic are to be announced.

Except it probably won't change much for major roads scheduled to be built in the following years, because they already have their environmental impact assessment finished under former rules. Unless GDDKiA manages to redo it and get new decisions before building all those roads marked in blue here:

... but that seems unlikely.

This is a good development. Poland was on a fast-track to become the ugliest country from a traveler's view.

"blablabla" If you have nothing interesting to say just keep your thoughts for yourself, please.

I'm really happy to hear that news. In addition what Chris said there is always factor of dangerous with these noise screens. Driving long hours in such tunnel can be really claustrophobic. It was sick for sure.

Where have you seen such long tunnel (hours of driving=hundreds of kilometers)?

I'm really happy too. Driving through highways in Poland is...boring for sure, cause it's seen noisy screens istead of landscape.
