So, this section of the S5 would have been opened by September 2013. When will it be opened according to current estimates?

Hey toonczyk. Just out of curiosity and I certainly will do understand if you don't want to answer my question: are you working for one of the companies involved in highways construction projects?

No, my only relation with road construction is that I'm a future user of those roads. I'm trying to do my duty as a citizen, stay informed and control how public money is spent, this is why I'm fighting GDDKiA on their information policy, I'd like them to be more open and transparent.

With the new sections of the S8 open now, it's faster (and a bit longer) to go via Bialystok. If you drive the legal maximum and make only one ten minute stop for fuel and other necessities, then seven hours should be possible -- especially if the works on the A2 east of Lodz have been completed.

Well, it depends on the traffic, especially around Warsaw on the S8 bypass and on the section between eastern outskirt of Warsaw and Radzymin. If there is rush hour you can probably easily add another one hour.

Bialystok could be jammed in rush hours too... However this is an alternative route.

Now it makes sense. It seemed that you had meant that September 2013 was the previously estimated opening date, no longer valid. Now it's clear.

Not sure if it was already mentioned in English section, but after last opening of A-1, Poland has now:

- more A km than Croatia
- more A km than UK per capita

Borat would say: GREAT SUCCESS!

I think per capita Poland has now more Motorways and other grade separated roads then the UK, if only motorways are taken into account UK is still ahead.

UK is a smaller country with a lot bigger population. I imagine, that roads over there have statistically more lanes. So maybe lane not road comparision would be more fair.

do not want to be rude...

why are we trying to compare Polish road network to others ? what is the purpose ? sorry to tell it but I read it as we are trying to convince ourselves we are not the last ones in what we call Europe.
once we have a decent road network that kind of "comparisons" disappear
