No reason really - they open them as soon as they get proper paperwork. Final checks take a few hours and then you need to coordinate opening of interchanges, unveiling new signs etc. Usually they start all procedures in the morning, but then there are almost always some little details to fix (either in paperwork or actual signage), so they take a few hours to fix them (or a few days for example when it's a problem with maps) and try again. I think it's great that GDDKiA has a policy of opening roads as soon as it's possible, even if that means working overtime and assemblying a team at midnight. I'm glad we've left pompous opening ceremonies behind, with drivers forced to use an old road while a brand new one is ready, but still closed because everybody's waiting for some official to show up to cut the ribbon.

This actually still happens on roads that are not delayed (like S3 - juncton with A2 or S8 today). Since most of them caught huge delays, this doesn't happen often

You mean a continuation of Motorway-class road on Ukrainian side? Not yet, but heard they want to build one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highway_M10_%28Ukraine%29
Ask them for details, if you care.

Korczowa. A4 comes from the left and ends at the existing border crossing.

Of course it continues but I guess the question was if there is a highway of European standards out there. So the answer is: no.

I thought that the S8 from Salomea to Opacz (S2) and the S17 from Lublin Witosa to Lublin Mełgiewska were supposed to open to traffic next week?
