Not just the bypass of Kielce, but also the stretch between Kielce and Skarżysko-Kamienna. In total, about 45 kilometres of S7 in Świętokrzyskie has been completed.

Explained above.

Plus, Kielce bypass today became S7 again, so we can finally drive 120km/h.

Any news on opening dates for the S2 between Aleja Krakowska (DK7) to Puławska (DK79) and the rest of the S79 from the airport to Warszawa Południe interchange?

Hi, I have two questions:

- Do you think Poland is going to build a motorway connection between Szczecin and Gdansk? Is there any plan to build it?

- Is there a motorway connection with Kaliningrad? If not, is previsted a connection with this enclave of Russia?

No, plans for a motorway between Szczecin and Gdansk were shelved long ago. Only an expressway (S6) will eventually connect the two cities instead

No, there is no direct motorway connection between Poland and Kaliningrad. The only fast direct link between Poland and this Russian enclave is expressway S22 which is fully complete and open to traffic

Well I can, so it has something to do with your connection, browser or whatever.

Try opening the pic in a new tab.

I have tried it using Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. For some reason the S2/79 is forbidden for me to download because I am in a public library as I do not possess the Internet at home. Using Google Chrome I have managed to open the map posted by Blaskovitz

That section of the S8 is open now, but speed limits are restricted to 80 km/h -- at least in the Warsaw -> Piotrkow Trybunalski direction. The expressway sign hasn't been moved toward Warsaw yet. No doubt the works will be completed this year.

Expressway or motorway - it is juts a difference in name.

Yes, S6 motorway is planned between Szczecin and Gdańsk. It is however hard to say if it will be completed before 2020. Some sections for sure, like Koszalin bypass.

To be clear - S22 has a single carriageway. There is room for second carriageway, but there is no need to build it since the traffic is too low.

Some pictures of A1 in Bytom

1. Towards Gliwice


(Notice the endless wall of acoustic screens, and yes, this is a forest and there are no buildings - see satellite image)

2. Towards Łódź


3. One more shot towards Łódź - widening to 3 lanes between Bytom and Piekary junctions

What if the noise wakes up the trees and the trees are angry? Think about the possible consequences.
