Polish language is very interesting.

North - polnoc - also means midnight
South - poludnie - also means midday
West - zachod - also means sunset
East - wschod - also means sunrise

There was a tornado there and caused real havoc all over the place. Maybe it had something to do with it.

Three aerial photos of motorway A4 in Chorzow, Upper Silesia (from topic about new logistic centre ), You can also see cities like Katowice, Siemianowice Slaskie, Swietochlowice and Ruda Slaska. Maybe Bytom also but I haven't got so well eye






And Ziętka Roundabout in Katowice, above Drogowa Trasa Srednicowa (DTŚ)

S3 Szczecin - Gorzów Wielkopolski by @JacYk

Kilka zdjęć z różnych miejsc, między Szczecinem, a Gorzowem.

Widok w kierunku Gorzowa, tuż przed barem do rozbiórki i wielką hałdą kruszywa.
Zaczynają coś nieśmiało "grzebać" w miejscu, dawno wyciętego lasu.




Na razie, karczują teren.


Tuż za w/w wspomnianym barem (widok w kierunku Gorzowa), też się coś zaczyna dziać (w tle, między drzewami, widać pracujący kafar/palownicę?).


Tu widok na Węzeł Gorzów, ze zjazdu z DK3 w stronę centrum Gorzowa. Widoczny odgarnięty pas ziemi, jest przygotowywany pod budowę drugiej nitki i połączenie węzła z S3.


Wracam z Gorzowa, widok na WD60a w kierunku Szczecina (duży postęp).



Teraz jesteśmy przy WD30 (widok w stronę Szczecina), tuż za nim będzie MOP Sitno. Właśnie przywieźli, rozściełacz asfaltu...


...i będą asfaltować kolejny odcinek tym razem od WD30 (za plecami) do WD31, czyli przecięcia S3 z drogą Sitno-Derczewo.


Zbliżenie w kierunku Gorzowa w dali WD31.


Przenosimy się na kolejny odcinek obszaru chronionego, czyli Natura2000, gdzie ruszyły i to pełna parą, roboty budowlane. Widok z drogi Chlebowo (po lewej)- Stare Brynki (po prawej) w kierunku Gorzowa.







Odwracam się w kierunku wsi Stare Brynki.


Teraz z tego samego miejsca, kolejny obrót w prawo i widok w kierunku Szczecina. Mechaniczne stabilizowanie gruntu, kruszywem łamanym.

Widok, kawałek dalej na węzeł w budowie.


Szykana, a po prawej zdemontowana między jezdniami barierka i gotowy wykop pod podporę estakady.

I thought the entire bypass of the Silesian region (Gliwice, Katowice etc) is 6-laned.

Góra świętej Anny (2+3 and 3+3)


Gliwice - Katowice (3+3)


Katowice (2 main lanes + 2 kind of service lanes in each direction but also regular 3+3)



Southern part of Kraków bypass (3+3)


Overall, there's about 20 kilometers (I guess) of 3+3 A4 motorway.

DTS (conturbation highway) is also 2x3. A1 in southern Poland will also be 2x3 in some urban areas. So all together there will be quite a few nice wide highways there once its all completed.
