I like the colorful bridges, it's a nice splash of personality even if it's just a short little bridge. If you're going to build a highway system, why not have a little fun with it?

I would rather prefer structures which are blending better with the landscape.

Last thing we need in Poland are more tacky structures.
We already have whole housing estates painted in ridiculous colours. There is plenty of "fun" there. Almost as much as in kindergarten

IMHO that colorful bridge looks much better from different angle. I don't like these colors, I would prefer white and gray.

From that angle it reminds me machine from Contact movie

I don't mind the colours, but the bridge is built way too complex for the modest distance it spans.

Recycling of spoil ( IE rock) from coal mines is very green.

They've fired the chief of GDDKIA involved in the dispute between the agency and construction companies, including Alpin Bau and SIAC, which 6 European governments have supported and complained.

But look at the picture ! Is it the new way they found in Polska to protect constructions sites from diversions of materials, really very clever .

Socialist mentality... All those poor companies now struggling for survival krew exactly the rules when they participated in tenders. Their managers or owners were too greedy to be cautious... They risked and they lost. And now what, the government is supposed to save them?

Of course, the EU actively supports welfare for large wealthy corporations.

I suspect that the real reason for his dismissal is that Bienkowska wants to have more women in prominent positions.

That has it's charm, believe me ''blend in Holland'' is ****. Not only boring but also the rules and regulations that come with it are retarded, people aren't allowed to build an extra part on their own home on their own land because it won't fit in .

You should be grateful the western rules mentality hasn't reached Poland yet so badly, sure some EU rules show, but not as badly as over here.

Seems that here fits very well known rule that you want sth you don't have
In polish threads we discuss all the time "how western Europe is great in its Law of Urbanism enforcement"...

Sounds logical to me, much like you can't just burn your house if you don't want it anymore and you can't do the same with your trash even when it's the cheapest way to dispose them. Such actions would affect other people in a negative way so there have to be some rules and I don't see why things like look or the size of a building shouldn't be regulated. Even in Poland you can't just build additional floors when you feel like it because the building might collapse or block the sunlight to your neighbours but at the same time you can add some fake greek columns and paint it bright yellow because you hate everyone and want to make them suffer at least a bit when they have to come nearby.

But the look of a building is entirely subjective and can't cause an actual injury to anyone. Not burning the house is reasonable, it could cause neighbor's house to burn. Making sure foundation is able to support any extra levels is important, since house could fall down on neighbor or his car, etc. But the look, well anyone who would dare complain for someone's choice in house style, is just an *******, the law is not for them
