I love the purple colour of the Mszana bridge - it gives drivers something more interesting to look at than boring grey concrete

It's official - the Mszana bridge and therefore the whole stretch of the A1 between Świerklany and Mszana exits opens tomorrow morning. This will complete the entire A1 motorway between the Polish/Czech border and Pyrzowice (north of Katowice)

http://www.gddkia.gov.pl/pl/a/15065/...icy-z-Czechami

It says in the article that agreements/contracts over the remaining missing parts of the A1 i.e. between Łódż and Tuszyn, Piotrykow Trb - Częstochowa and
Częstochowa - Pyrzowice will be signed at the end of this year

I think it happened (and will be_upgraded) because of grey world in Poland during communist time, and Poles want to compensate this time. What`s more, the bridges are not the biggest problem. Take a look on colours palette of upgraded commieblocks
I think it has to do with culture. You won't see colourful bridges in Estonia and the amount of multicoloured commieblocks is fortunately very low. Most are quite tastefully redone.

BTW, I'm not saying that it's bad. I actually like some of the colourful bridges in Poland I'd personally stick with more conservative colours for buildings, though

No, it doesn't say such things.

I love all the colour in Poland. It really makes a huge difference when driving - all the crazy bridges and colours do a lot to break up the monotony of driving. Germany for me is incredibly tedious in comparison...

I'm wrong, my reply wasn't seriously intended. Same colour tendency has been observed in Slovakia.

Is Polish your first language Kemo? If so than with the greatest respect and sincere apologies I bow down to your superior and native knowledge if not then Polish is my second language so I can understand it well enough to interpret the meaning of the end of the article which in Polish is:

Podpisanie umów planowane jest na koniec br

English:

The signing of the agreements is planned for the end of this year

Right, but You wrote that all contracts, including Piotrków - Częstochowa are planned to be signed by the end of 2014.

Tender for Piotrków - Częstochowa will not even be announced this year.

In that case my heartfelt apologies Kemo. So A1 between Piotrków - Częstochowa could be years off from being a reality? That potentially means a huge gap in the A1 between Piotrków and Pyrzowice. It looks doubtful that even A1 between Łódż and Tuszyn could be completed by 2016

There aren't many hard facts about it, but in this leaflet it says that this section is scheduled to start around 2017.

Guess we shall just have to wait and see. The most useful next stretch of A1 to get built and completed would be between A2 and Tuszyn as it would remove a lot of transit traffic away from Łódż

You are almost cold nordics after all

I still hope to announce tender for construction A1 between Tuszyn and Częstochowa this year (eg after summer).
But to be fair, above mentioned stretch is the least needed.

A 7,2 km long missing link of the A1 motorway Świerklany-Mszana opens to traffic today. It means that A1 (and A4) motorway gained connection with motorways and expressways in Czech Republic.

It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that I am able to announce to the SSC community that as of today MA-532 is finally open to traffic, allowing uninterrupted motorway travel on the A1 from Pyrzowice to Ostrava and beyond. It is as joyous and happy an occasion as it is humbling. Finally, the trials and tribulations of this project are behind us and from today we can look forward to its rational and pragmatic rewards.

We have had more than our fair share of upheavals but perhaps none as technologically significant as the road building programme of recent years. Even today, with all the construction activities happening around me, I still shudder with a sense of awe and fail to comprehend fully just how far and how fast we have come.

I sincerely hope that this magnificent bridge spanning an unassuming brook will contribute to our continued onward progress; expand, strengthen and enrich our knowledge, add economic value and bring closer together the people of this beautiful part of the world on both sides of the PL/CZ border.

So here is to another road opening event, one of the longest engineering projects in our region, at least in my living memory. Arguably and controversially innovative, visionary and challenging from an engineering perspective, much anticipated, lethal like cold steel to many of those who dared to reach to claim its prize, long in the making but at long last permanently here.

Does the opening of the Mszana bridge mean that the weight restriction on the section between the Polish/Czech border and Mszana will be lifted and all cars and lorries/trucks can use the motorway?

According to wikipedia since November 2012 the A1 between the border and Mszana has been open to light vehicles only (see below)

Hopefully another missing link to be filled in next month - the incomplete part of the S11 Poznań western bypass between DK92 and the Poznań Rokietnica interchange 12th June is the unofficial opening date
