Is there an overview of the national government road budgets for the past several years?

Not a big fan of bus stops on expressways. Correct me if I am wrong, this is fortunately not too common in Poland.

This is not a bas stop for sure, probably a place for vehicle inspection (weighbridge?).

I'm pretty sure that's a bus stop, we have those on some expressways.

Bus stops are pretty common on Japanese expressways too.

I think in Poland it makes sense, since many expressways are in fact a re-build national roads often with suburban bus traffic, like on S-11 near Poznań. Such bus stops serve the local community which I find a good thing.

I think the only reason of placing bus stops directly on expressways is a lack of parallel service road or any road that can be used for that purpose. Expressways shouldn't serve local traffic in most cases.

From the motorway openings thread:

Any official source to back that up? GDDKiA doesn't mention it, nor does their facebook page which is usually quite up-to-date when it comes to new openings.

Well, because this is a recontruction, 'opened to traffic' means two lanes in each direction are now availible, not that everything is done to the very last detail, thus no official opening so far.

In my opinion, the salient point is that two lanes are (reportedly) open in each direction. If the speed limit of 120 kph is now in force, all the better. Any details about which works are finished seems minor to me by comparison.

To be honest I still haven't heard any confirmation that both lanes in each direction are open, I'm a bit skeptical about that.

In other news, here's a few progress photos from A1 Sójki-Kotliska, BaK are doing miracles there. Photos by tasek.

Google Earth now shows 1700 meters of the A1 open near Dabrowska. I'm very skeptical.

Node Bytom was opened to traffic on 16 October 2012 in the evening. It connects A1 motorway with National Road 11.

They'll probably put the S sign only when the whole section is complete.

When are we likely to see work commencing on extending the S7 from Skarżysko Kamienna to join it with the current S7 north of Radom thus creating an entire stretch of S7 expressway at least between Grójec and Kielce? March 2013 can't come soon enough to see the Kielce bypass
fully upgraded to dual carriageway on each side

The current plan is to complete the S7 all the way between Warsaw and Krakow by 2020. The Radom bypass should be next after the Kielce bypass.
