I've read that some toll plazas become jammed on holidays due to insufficient staffing or capacity. Does this happen on A2 west of Poznań?

I drove A2 from Germany to Poznan in the summer of 2013 and it was fine (just random empirical observation)

However A4 was more problematic, spent about 10 minutes waiting to get through Balice / Krakow once (direction east) and all other times I passed the A4 booths was some cars ahead.

GDDKiA has just cancelled one contract worth 80 mln PLN to expand toll plazas on one stretch of A4. The agency will pay a 10% (8 mllion PLN) fine to the winners but the idea is to move all tolls from manual to eletronic.

This toll movement from manual to electronic is said to be made in next two years.

Excellent video

When will another carriageway be added to and finished on the Gorzów Wlkp, Międzyrzecz, Zielona Góra and Nowa Sól bypasses?
Once they are all upgraded to dual carriageway than traffic which flow much faster between Nowa Sól and Szczecin

I think it is the fact that all of these bypasses are all currently single carriageway which really slows down the traffic between Nowa Sól
and Szczecin. It is not until you get north of Gorzów Wlkp that we reach the longest unbroken stretch of S3 (dual carriageway) all the way to
Szczecin

The Gorzów Wlkp bypass shows signs of wear and tear too with that terrible road surface

Construction will start this year.

Construction will start next year (or even this year, but probably not).

Thanks Kemo. We could even be optimistic then and hope that the Gorzów Wlkp bypass will be completely dualled and the extra carriageway opened to traffic this year then

Didn't know the DTS in Zabrze was ready to be opened

Has the S3 (Gorzów Wlkp -Międzyrzecz) opened yet?

An 37,6 kilometer segment of the S3 Expressway opened to traffic. It runs from interchange Gorzów Wlkp. South to interchange Międzyrzec North.

Does that include up to the interchange with the A1 motorway in Gliwice?

Are we likely to see the infamous bridge at Mszana on the A1 motorway open by the end of May 2014 or will it be end of June 2014 as originally planned?

Why autumn? It should be opened no later than in July.

Not yet. This is the section that will be ready in autumn.

End of May / beginning of June.

Thanks Kemo. Sure it will be a great relief to drivers and to the residents of the villages on the diversionary route when the Mszana bridge opens and the A1 takes the heavy traffic away from them

I seem to recall reading a few years ago that the roads used for the Mszana bypass would be rebuilt after the bridge opening.

450.000 trees were planted alongside during the construction process - something that rarely gets mentioned on our forums.

What does that mean, they don't get any bidders for that project? (that's usually what extended bidding deadlines mean).
