S2 between Konotopa (A2, S8) and Al. Krakowska will open in ~2 weeks. East of Al. Krakowska they're also finishing it up, right now we're basically waiting for one delayed culvert (they only started building it 3 months ago because it turned out geotechnical conditions were different than expected and the design had to be changed). You can see what it looks like here.
Thanks for the update. Warsaw will finally have some form of a proper southern bypass soon

Ok, now I see that the discussion above is also about S2, when will the segment between Roads 79 and Road 17 be constructed?

Theoretically this is one of the task on priority list for next 5 years but this part of S2 is complex. There is a need to built over kilometer long tunnel across Ursynow and then bridge over the Wisla river. On the top of that there was a big resistance of people living in Ursynow protesting against that project. However now after S2 is just on the outskirts of Ursynow I don't see any other option to make bypass of that place.

Former COVEC (Chinese company that failed to build A2 motorway in Poland) boss, Liu Zhijun is sentenced to death (corruption). Sentence suspended for two years, but Liu will spend at least 10 years in jail as Xi Jinping's corruption crackdown bites.

Google super specialist

Looks that some management in google maps wants to prove that they are creative, proactive, intelligent and they are always improving to be on top.
Now according to google maps narrow 6 metres wide village road DK36 is the same standard as S3 Szczecin Gorzow
They made all DK road looking same as expressways.
That`s the corporate philisophy , you may be doing stupid things but you must have VISIBILITY - that`s most important

....or maybe according to google Poland has 10 000 km expressways - that you can see on google map as well
sorry - this is almost 20 000 km of expressways in Poland now

Google Maps Polska sucks.... Recently they either don't know what is going on in Poland or they have total mess in their organisation or they just can't make up theirs mind how to show expressways in Poland.

Corporate policy is to use only three road types; motorways, main roads and secondary roads. For some reason it was thought best to show controlled acces highways without motorway status (such as expressways) as main roads.

I agree it's a complete failure on Google's part. Not to mention inconsistent, all freeways in the U.S. with State Highway and US Highway classification are still shown as freeways and not as regular roads, as they should have been, according to the European layout they used. Which would mean cities like Los Angeles and New York would lose over half of their freeways on the map.

Apple Maps is also not perfect but, in my opinion, a lot better than Google Maps most of the time. More important, again in my opinion, Apple Maps are quickly fixing their mistakes, where Google Maps are busy adding new mistakes.
