The last remaining section from Rzeszów to Jarosław should be opened in late 2015/early 2016.

With the latest section of A4 completed, we exceeded 3 000 kilometers of motorways and expressways in Poland.

1x2 expressways shouldn't count there are 250 km of such roads.

Now it is official: 34.8 kilometers of A4 (Tarnów - Dębica) opened to traffic.

This means that as of today Poland, with 3012.2 kilimeters of morotways and expressways in operation combined, broke the treshold of 3000 kilometers.

Earlier, 2500 kilometers treshold was broken in 2013 and 2000 kilometers treshold was broken in 2012.

There are 380,2 kilometers under construction and further 951.2 kilometers in tender. However we do not expect to break the next tresholds (3500 and 4000 kilometers) that soon again; probably in 2017/2018 and in 2020/2021, respectively. Which is still a good pace.

PS. Yes, this includes also 1x2 grade separated expressways, but on the other hand excludes many 2x2 or 2x3 grade separated GP class roads (such as DTŚ in Silesia). In other words, yes, we can mark today as the marking point for braking the 3000 kilometers treshold.

Did Wojnicz eastern bypass (DW975) open yesterday too?

Btw, the final part of Leżajsk bypass is expected to open tomorrow

And this stretch of motorway is in Google maps too. I have to admit Google puts more effort recently in updating their map. At least in Poland...

It's 2nd bypass of small town of Wojnicz (and de facto part of western bypass of Tarnow)

To me, these small bypasses are just as important as motorways / expressways; because for drivers they provide faster access to these excellent new roads

I look forward to Leżajsk bypass (Stage 2) being opened tomorrow

Not hard to imagine how much more expensive and difficult it does to design and build highway, not to mention other problems...

I am responsible for "opening" this road (and yesterday's S8) on Google Maps. And I don't work for Google

Google Map Maker? Have you heard about that? Anybody can register and improve Google Maps.
Of course it requires experience to draw and open new roads.

Yes, I heard about that but doesn't that need approval from Google before publishing any changes?

Yeah, normally "opening" a motorway needs to be approved by a person from Google, but not if you know some tricks...

How much of DK4 has now been renumbered to DK94? Does it only exist between Rzeszów and Jarosław nowadays?

Yes, DK4 only exists between Rzeszów and Jarosław (~41km). About 645km of former DK4 has been renumbered to DK94.

Not yet. At the moment there is (officially) no DK94 east of Tarnów.

And what is the reason for the renumbering scheme in Poland? Motorways and expressways do have different prefix (A, S) so in my opinion it wouldn't be a problem if there are A1, S1 and DK1 at the same time. Such system is adopted in Hungary (for example M7 motorway is parallel to 7 state road, M5 to 5 etc)...
