Not since the completion of the new section of the S8. We should see start of construction of the A1 (connecting the existing A1 near Piotrkow Trybunalski to the existing A1 near Pyrzowice) sometime next year.

Let's hope so... the government doesn't seem to have a clear idea how to finance this motorway.

Ah I see.

In any case however, if the new extension of the A1 will be built, then what would be the effects/consequences of it?

Or to put it in another way, compared to the existing routes (i.e. S86), will this be the fastest way between the two places? Or will it just serve as basically another route or option that will be available to motorists?

There are two parts of the non-existing section of A1:

Piotrków-Częstochowa: existing dual carriageway (constructed in '70s) with at-grade intersections, there are no built-up areas on the way. The condition of the road is rather bad, last winter several cars were damaged after huge potholes apprared overnight. This section of A1 will be 2x3 lanes.
So construction of this section doesn't create a new option, only improves the existing route.

Częstochowa-Pyrzowice (including Częstochowa bypass): this section will be built from scratch and will be parallel to existing DK1 Częstochowa-Siewierz (which is dual carriageway as well, however this section goes through many built-up areas).
So this section is more important as it will allow to bypass Częstochowa and its suburbs located along old DK1, and will be much faster.

In order to go to Katowice from Pyrzowice interchange one will be able to choose S1 & 86 or 79.

Is the comparison with whole 2012 or only 3 quarters of it?

Agree. Wroclaw and Bydgoszcz/Torun have always felt far from Poznan even though both are quite close in straight line geography. The S5 should be one of the biggest priorities, if not the biggest.

Can anyone tell me if a tender has been announced for the A4 between Rzeszów Wschód and Jarosław Zachód interchanges? This is the only part left to be under construction if the A4 is to be fully completed by the end of 2014

Looking at the map, what's the meaning of D/B tender?
And i don't see any project to upgrade DK1 to S1 from bielsko biala to tychy. They lost interest while opening A1? Two weeks ago i went to poland by S1 an returned in italy by A1 but in S1 there was much more traffic (travelling both times at about 21 o'clock)

"D/B tender" - Design-and-Build under tender. As in, the authority in charge has a tender out for companies willing to design and build the road under the specs provided in the Specification of the authority.

No. because the building company (Polimex) hasn't been kicked from this contract

There is a chance. However, if Polimex keeps on "working" as they do now, we will need to wait for 2015

It is not going to be upgraded. A brand new motorway is planned a bit to the east of existing DK1. There are problems with choosing the variant, because of coal mines/Natura 2000 areas/proximity of Auschwitz concentration camp.
