More then 50% of main Polish roads are still two-lanes (one lane in each directions). For one who haven`t been in Poland jet it`s perhaps interesting to see what such roads look like.

Here some pics:

1. Szczecin-Gorzow Wielkopolski 80 km: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...496160&page=51

2. Swinoujscie-Szczecin 60km: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...410027&page=20

3. Szczecin-Stargard Szczecinski 20km: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...181632&page=27

Well, it is great to drive them like on driving holiday. It is not so funny if yiu use them daily in your commuting or on a business trip.
Problem in Poland is that these are not scenic roads but main roads connection big cities and regions.
Can you imagine driving from LA to San Francisco on highway 1? Great once or twice but not every other day when you are on a hurry.

This is Polish side of border-crossing Skalité/Zwardoń. It has expressway (on Slovak side motorway parameters), but it's very very short and its adjacent roads are not suitable for high traffic volumes, not to mention trucks. For example from Slovak side there is only local road II/487 which is almost completely inside built-up area of villages. It's necessary to finish expresways on both sides from Polish town Zywiec to Slovak village Svrčinovec on crossing with road I/11 what will allow all kinds of traffic to use this border crossing. For now the main SK/PL border crossing still remains Trstená/Chyzne.

Why did they build a border station since both countries are Schengen members now?

Funny how things go. Next year, they are ready to implement the Euro. I hope other Central European countries follow soon.

2012, I believe. Many Slovaks are against the Euro because things would get much more expensive then. They point to Slovenia, where prices rose with 7% average. Maybe Verso knows more about this price rise.

I thought PLH told us before that there is no stopping anymore at the border, not even for trucks.
