Nope, entire bypas will be opened end of October. Mid September is the opening date for S17 going to Warsaw (13 km strech betwen existing part and Lublin).

I thought the south/eastern-most section b/n Rudnik and Felin (13km) will be opned in mid September, won't it? The section towards Warsaw has not a length of 13km.

Yes, but i am talking about 13km strech that will be opened in mid September. 13km comprises Lublin acces way and task No2 of Lublin bypass. Task 3 and 4 will be opened in October.

Good fast in and out access to/from Lublin. Good thinking!

Signposts say 8 - 61; Google Maps says 8 - 61 - 677 - 8; my own common sense says simply 8, that being a single numbered road and even an E road. And 8 - 61 - 63 - 8 seems also possible.
For road quality check this map: http://ssc.siskom.waw.pl/mapa-nawier...wierzchnia.png

Unfortunately, E67 from Warsaw to LT hasn't improved much yet.

There are some roadworks and traffic jams on DK61 in Łomża, so probably route via Białystok would be better (especiall that most heavy trucks from LT go via Łomża)

But don't expect much from DK8 or you will be disappointed

It may be opened earlier than section Sławinek - Rudnik, but it depends if they manage to complete the junction Rudnik...

Is GDDKiA going to repair DK1 between Radomsko and Piotrkow?

Completely? No f... way. For few years (2016-2017) is going to begin construction of A1 at this place. So there is no sense to do it. Just current maintenance.

I was thinking of something like partial upgrade to A-standard because especially the right lane is in catastrofic condition and trucks are slaloming between huge holes. But that's probably not happening.
The rest of the DK1 is quite good though.

I suppose the best we could reasonably hope for would be an upgrade to S-class standards and perhaps numbering the S1 from Katowice up to Czestochowa. Farther north where you were thinking will be rebuilt as the A1.

There is no plans to upgrade "1" from Wojkowice Kościelne (interchange S1/1/86) up to Czestochowa to S-class standards.

There is no need, a no sense and it takes ages because it is necessary new enviromental issues (DŚU) etc. And because there was announced tenders for all (5?) stretches between Pyrzowice (A1/S1/Katowice Airport) Interchange and Częstochowa (interchanges with DK1 north of Częstochowa). So, it is going to be completed during 2017.

I understand that there are no official plans to upgrade the DK1 south of Czestochowa and it certainly will not happen any time soon. However, the future lasts a long time.

For traffic between Czestochowa and the A4/S1 intersection, the route in question is 10-15 km shorter than the tendered A1 sections which will be parallel. I think it might be worth considering perhaps for the 2030s after higher priorities have been satisfied.

Let's focus on the here and now. We have many high priority roads hopefully opening before the end of 2014 such as the S17 Lublin bypass, S5
(Bojanowo-Rawicz), S11 (missing part of Poznań western bypass) and
A4 Tarnów - Dębica

I don`t think so this road is going to be opened this year.

And you forgot about S8 stretches between Walichnowo and Łask

Indeed I did. Shame the S8 between Sieradz and Łask won't be open until 2015

S11 Poznań western bypass sounds like a never-ending saga because of that pipeline

I just happened to make a driving video of this section



The concept of upgrading this road to S standard seems troublesome.

There's a chance it will open this year.

____________________

Today, three more tender procedures have started for S6 between Goleniów and Koszalin. Nowa the entire S6 between these cities is being tendered.

Walichnowy-Łask cointains Sieradz-Łask. So yes, It will be opend this year and it means S8 Wrocław-Łódź all the way without any "breaks"
