It's not a priority for Slovakia for obvious reasons but they would build it if the EU would be providing 85% of the funds and those funds would not otherwise go to build another road in Slovakia. It would be particularly easy to entice Slovakia to upgrade the E77 between Banska Bystrica and the D1. North of the D1 and south of the Zvolen would probably only come after the S7 and the Hungarian M2 are more nearly complete.

The R3.sk will surely not be completed until 2030.

The R4 is much farther to the east. The expressways which will run through Slovakia along the E77 route between Krakow and Budapest are the R1 and R3. If the EU want to make them a funding priority for the 2021-2027 cycle, then that's when they'll be built. If both Poland and Hungary lobby for it, it will happen.

It is part of the easternmost EU north-south route, from the Baltics to Southeast Europe. However traffic volumes are rather low on most of the route, so I don't think it will see any significant completion before 2025, except for Lublin - Rzeszów (which will also link Warszawa with southeastern Poland).

I expect we'll see the R1 completed to intersect with the D1 in Slovakia before 2025. Each such improvement to the E77 will reduce the number of vehicles detouring to the west to go via Bratislava, so the traffic flows will increase. Improvements to the S7 both north and south of Krakow will also increase the traffic on the E77 through Slovakia.

R4 through eastern Slovakia will be completed sooner then central R3 (E77), simply because because it's shorter and cheaper. Too bad that S19 between Rzeszow and SK border is not planned before 2020.

Not long time ago S19 from Rzeszow to SK border was as a one of the first section of S19 to be build. Let's wait because it is too much confusion so far. Section of S19 between Lublin and Rzeszow also sometimes is mentioned , sometimes disappears from the nearest plans.

It's nice to see how Poland has advanced in the developmento of it's motorways. I have one image in my brain: motorway until Frankfurt der Oder and then, nothing. Now there is a modern motorway until Varsaw.
I think that Poland is the next big country in Europe. Congratulations, you have a lot of potential to growth.

Yes, there is already an environmental decision (DŚU) but no assured funds. Szczecin department of national road agency takes small steps to improve this road - last year works on a small stretch north of Kijewo have finished.

I drove 350 kilometers through NW Poland. I wanted to experience all kinds of roads, so I drove via motorways, expressways, droga krajowa, droga wojewódzka and city roads. It was my first time in Poland in 10 years (I visited before in 2000 and 2003, but this was my first time driving by myself). I knew the route I wanted to drive in advance and did not use a GPS, signage in Poland is quite alright if you know the destinations and route numbers you want to follow, I wasn't lost at any time.

S61

It looks like we have another road construction drama, Spanish FCC withdrew from the contract to construct the bypass of Szczuczyn in northeastern Poland.

According to FCC, they couldn't use the soil from the earthworks to re-use in embankments according to the tender. Reusing earth in the same projects is very common. I don't get this arguing, because they are building through normal agricultural area, not some kind of swamp.

I think there's more to it than the claim of unusable soil. FCC acquired troubled Alpine Bau half a decade ago. Additionally, their market value on the stock market IBEX 35 plunged by more than 60% in the last year (from € 20 to less than € 8 per share). According to GDDKiA, half of the deadline for the project has expired while they only built 16% so far.

I have a few questions to which i couldn't really find an answer:

1. Why do trucks have to leave the A2 at Żyradów and are not allowed to drive to Warsaw? I mean the highway is more or less finished. It seems for me really not understandable why to put the heavy traffic on the small local roads while there is a 99% functional highway going to the city.

2. What is happening on the A1 section between Stryków and Tuszyn? I read in the Polish forums that they also have some trouble there.

3. And what the heck is going on with the A1 section between Torun and Kowal? This seems to be a never-ending story. As I could understand the Italian company is not willing to pay the Polish subsidiary companies. And because they do not receive any money, almost no work is performed so far. Have I understood this well?
