Good you put: We don't need another landmark we need something that has no noise screens.

These landmark bridges have to compensate for all the ugly commieblocks

In seriousness, the amount of landmark bridges at normal interchanges are maybe too much, but a river crossing is quite significant. As people like architecture, bridges need some decent architecture as well, especially if they are significant bridges (i.e. not just another overpass).

I don't see the link between noise barriers and bridge design.

You really don't see the link between noise barriers and bridge design? This is North bridge in Warsaw designed and built from scratch:

Yes noise barriers can be put on bridges too, but I don't see what it has to do with picking the bridge design (i.e. cable-stayed or extradosed or cantilever or box girder).

Well you are right, just want to say that any even best design can be destroyed by these ugly barriers. In case of bridge on S2 there are two things that made that bridge looks how it looks: money and some environmental issues which I am not an expert in here to explain of.

Don't be surprised if you see noise barriers in upcoming tunnels in Poland .

Noise barriers are important on bridges over rivers, because of the possibility of endangered species of air bubbles in the water, which could be disturbed by road noise.

Yes, and we also know that Polish frogs have wings and they fly. I guess Poland has got too much money.

That is likely also a wildlife crossing.

Yes it is.
But putting such barriers there makes it more narrow which may possibly deter animals from going through here.
Anyway, how can an animal know on which side of the barrier it is supposed to go?
Also, the traffic on this road is rather low.

If it is wildlife crossing that is not that good design anyway, as the fencing/noise barrier ends just outside the overpass. And the acess road on one side of the motorway renders it rather useless as well.
It could be explained as reserve for future enlargement while utilized as wildlife crossing atm. Anyway quite strange indeed.

Btw, the motorway has sound barriers as well, but they are rather nice - glass ones.

Poland is not a country. It's a state of mind.

Which part of the DK16 is dual carriageway? Certainly not Augustow - Ogrodniki. Where was the above photo taken?
