I am actually positively surprised that there is only few noise barriers. Would be better if none or at least they were lower but anyway it is progress to put them less than usually....

Colors are not so bad either, I saw many worst cases.
Bridge in Kwidzyn is really nice piece of engineering and architecture. Congrats!

In my opinion, colors are very bad.

That's how it should look like (Wrocław bypass road A8):

I've heard that the A4 section Przemyśl - Korczowa will be opened in August. Is that true?

It was supposed to be, but won't be. They're doing their best there, but the delays were just too big. End of this year is very likely though.

I saw that section 2 weeks ago and it didn't look like to be finished soon. The end of the year is much more probable.

In general, I very much like that Poland's newer bridges are colorful.

Red is ok, but so many of the bridges are red and, seemingly, the same red. I prefer some of the blue and yellow bridges, for example.

Digging out this discussion.

The best Internet map of Poland is Targeo. The maps are accurate and up to date, even on countryside. Plus there is route planning, traffic information, info about closed roads, points of interest and more. And they are easy to read.

The only aspects in which OSM is better is that it has some "non-road" information (such as mountain peaks, nature reserves, power lines) and usually better information about roads that are planned/under construction.

If I am not mistaken they have 10 gates for paying there. So much better. And never experienced a traffic jam there or heard of one.
Hah. In Stryków it is indeed temporary, but was planned as permanent and another toll booth was planned for Łódź-Warszawa section. Fortunately, this plan is abandoned and therefore now we have large temporary toll booth in Stryków.

Targeo is maybe OK but works only for Poland. Not the big fun of graphic aspect of the map. In my opinion the best is http://mapa.szukacz.pl/ It looks very clear and is well detailed in all over the Europe. Check it out.

Hello, I would like to know how much of S8 is dual-carriageway east of Warsaw, and if there's construction going on when it's going to be finished.

There is so far around 90km of S8 (dual-carriageway) open for traffic east of Wisla river:

Remaining parts to be built in next years. There is no construction works at the present. According to GDDKiA: Section between Marki and Radzymin - tender. Sections between Zambrow and Jezewo (towards Bialystok) schould be built till 2016. Sections between Zambrow and Ostrow Maz. and between Ostrow Maz. and Wyszkow around 2018 (!):

Odd design compared to what I think is logical!

Cyclists and pedestrians share the same bit?

But a moped ( scooter in the vid) has to go between the cars ?

There should be 3 sections:
1- Pedestrians
2- Cars & motorbikes only ( not allow slow traffic)
3- Cycle/moped path, for cyclists, mopeds, scooters, etc... Or if allowed currently between the cars: farm vehicles. Basically any traffic unable to go faster than 50 km/h.

Looks wise, I can't fault it! I like it.



Oh and regarding the tolls, luckily I've not had to wait longer than 5 minutes at any, but I still think it's a disgrace, expensive as **** but wasting many minutes at the toll booths. What's the point of a motorway then ?
How will they cope when traffic increases to 70.000+ per day ?

Incomplete permit is affecting opening of S2 between Konotopa and Aleja Krakowska. The fire brigade haven't done their part apparently
