Here's the full list of vehicles per capita:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...les_per_capita

The Netherlands still come out on top of Poland based on that list, though the data there is from 2008 and 2009 so now it might not be the case any more.

That list is useless because it includes commercial vehicles such as heavy trucks.

All in all, this road is the absolute shame of the European Union and cannot be compared to some poor rural roads with little traffic, it's one of the main entrance roads to Poland.
Indeed. Currently, 60% of national roads is reportedly in good condition. However, I do not know whether this is a good result. There are roads that are in a similar state as the DK18.

As I have mentioned many times 60% good national roads is quite a good result. However we feel that is not enough for us and we expect more(in my opinion even around 75% and I hope we'll achieve at the end of this decade).

Everything is going in right direction. No needs to complain. Sooner or later we are going to catch up with the rest of the Western Europe

Is the dashed red line at the right a planned section of the A2?

S17 more expensive than S2??? I understand from the article that 18 billions is the cost of the whole ring (including plot cost).

It looks like.... They also have to re-route S17 because of some species of fish lives in pond which is on the way of originally planned S17...

and it is finished (just minor snagging remaining) ... the only thing left is a series of audits that must be carried by both road and European agencies to receive final authorization and official express way standard.

Now, there is this small question: how many audits this road must go through to receive final authorization?

Answer: three

Only three? Really?

I guess that might be one Polish safety audit, one Polish financial audit, and one EU financial audit.
