In a few weeks there should be preliminary data regarding road traffic casualties, but for sure 2012 will have been the best year since 1960's in terms of number of people killed on our roads, I estimate it's gonna be somewhere between 3500 and 3600. Just for comparison, in 2011 there have been 4189 deaths, in 2004 - 5712, in 1997 - 7311, the worst year in our history was 1991 when 7901 people were killed in road accidents. Obviously there are many factors in play, but I think this progress is mostly due to new roads and safety improvements to the old ones. I hope this trend will continue and 2013 will be even safer than 2012.

That means about 30% of all motorways and expressways in Poland were opened in 2012. Amazing.

Despite the fact that the number of vehicles has increased a lot since 1991

I think this was once linked in this thread but I'm not sure, it is a very pedagogical tool showing motorway openings for each separate year, click on any given year and existing roads for that year show up in green, inaugurations for that year show in red.
It is clear that, even if many planned openings didn't occur, 2012 still represents a veritable explosion in roads compared with any other time.

So it has begun... I've already heard policeman on tv saying that because of so many new speed cameras and 'stealth-speedcamera-enabled-vehicles' we can observe this dramatic drop in deaths on the roads in 2012. TV presenter was kind enough to point out that we also had some major road openings last year, but never said that it was a THIRD of total A/S roads in PL. :>

A1 Styrkow - Tuszyn 40km (East of Lodz) connecting the A1 North and S8 Wroclaw-Warsaw has been granted permission to start buliding the motorway. Full works should take place end of Feb, due to improving weather conditions and the motorway should be completed in June 2014. Good news! Let's hope it's completed on time...

The latest map shows the S61 under construction between Suwalki and Raczki with completion indicated for September 2014. I'm guessing that the contract has been signed but groundbreaking hasn't yet occurred. I guess groundbreaking awaits spring weather. Is that right?

It depends on weather conditions. The construction works should start immediately.

Yellow = tender
Purple = design and build contract, design phase
Brown/orange = design and build tender
Blue = environmental impact assessed

Yellow sections of A4 are the ones where previous contractors have been sacked, new contracts are not signed yet.

When will the Autostrada A18 be build or when will anything happen to A18? I drove there last year and this road is in a critical condition. It is truly one of Poland's worst roads!!!

It gives people a bad thought of Polish roads, when they enter Poland from Germany.

One of the A18's carriageways is fine and the other is in deplorable condition. It is on the reserve list for the 2014-2020 budget cycle, so whether or not the A18's bad carriageway will be built before 2020 depends on how much money will be allocated by the EU to Poland for road construction.

But it is a important road, am I right?
It connects Northern Germany + Berlin + Denmark to Southern Poland?

I'd say there are more important to be done. The AADT is not a high one there.
