I don't know whether it is always like this, but during my trip the waiting time was comparable on both sides. The Polish border guards weren't any faster than the Ukrainian ones as far as I remember.

I never understood this kind of attitude against people crossing international borders. International traffic / trade generates economic growth, but what do they do? They offer you the worst possible service by letting traffic wait for hours. Imagine if you had to wait 2 hours to board a subway in London or Berlin, there would be a public / political outrage over it. Somehow it seems to be an accepted practice at borders.

Exactly, as a tourist you only cross the border to leave money on the other side, and it's really weird if for some reason they don't want your money.

If someone waits too long on the Ukrainian border crossing, next time they travel they will choose a destination inside Schengen area and the only one to lose will be Ukraine.

But we went off the topic.

You have totally missed my point. I actually drove there recently. It was really interesting to see this kind of road surface still exists on national roads.

Perhaps they want to protect animals from noise? Is there any other country in the world with such a density of noise barriers?

I forgot to add, that S3 passes the largest bats reserve in Europe. On this columns there will be net to protect bats from collisons with cars.

It's called "eco screen", looks like this on stretch S3 Międzyrzecz - Sulechów.

There are several sections of expressways which might or might not open this year. One that seems certain to open this year (maybe next month) is the section of S8 near Mszczonow.

The dates shown on the map above are the contracted dates. Many of them will not be completed by the contracted dates.

Today GDDKiA officially announced tenders for two new projects (33 kilometers in total):

S-3 Nowa Sól – Legnica - sections from Nowa Sól South to Kaźmierzów (north of Polkowice).

Assuming no delays the projects should be completed in late 2016.

In June 2013, GDDIKA announced tenders for appr. 250 km of new expressways.

This is also a good source of information:


I bet the only new highways opened in this year will be:
-S2/S79 in Warsaw
-S8 near Mszczonów (well, it's not really an "opening of new road")
-S12/S17 "Bogucin-Dąbrowica" (west of Lublin)
-possibly also A4 near Jarosław and Dębica east-Rzeszów west (the dates are for 2014, but they are supposed to finish both junctions this year)

This is better than no openings at all for the rest of 2013
