What exactly is the point of that road on the rest area (in red circle)? There's clearly some kind of viaduct made for it, but the road is kinda useless since you can just use the road on the far right of the circle to get onto the highway.

I hope someone can explain

It could be a weigh station for trucks with a scale embedded in the road.

Interesting that he was driving when there isn't even any snow here

@ufonut Hadn't even thought of that, it would explain the different color asphalt too.

The temperature is about 0°C right now, could get colder at night, they are applying salt to prevent water from freezing and forming black ice.

Spraying salt is a prevention measure. It doesn't work if you spray salt when there is already snow accumulation on the road. That's when the snow plows come in. Salt is also only effective at not too low temperatures and if there's enough traffic to drive it into the pavement.

BTW Money has been allocated for the last 5 km section of S11. When completed this bypass will be 25km long.

No it's not

The loop for left-turning traffic is still missing, so traffic has to turn around and then take the exit.

Yes, it's still weird. In Romania we just put a roundabout in the middle of the motorway, not build a loop...

The entire route in Lodz voievodeship has been completed more or less. The part around Mszczonów is still U/C.

A 8km section of S11 expressway Złotków-Rokietnica (western bypass of Poznań) was opened to traffic today. Road is open for cars <3,5t, till the last section of S11 expressway Rokietnica - Swadzim (S11/92 interchange) will be built.

So what's up with that last section? There were some NIMBY protest.

It will have been built by the end of 2014 but the Polish Road Authority isn't sure if 2 lanes will be finished.
