Ahhh, the Americans are exaggerating again
Nice pics, PLH! It seems like we've already seen the entire new partrof the A1 before it's opening

How long are all those S and A-roads combined? About 7.000 kilometers? Not all S-roads will be immediatly build with dual carriageways though.

S5, S7, S8, S19, S3, A1, A2, A4, A6, A18, S1, S2, S79, should be build before Euro 2012, but it's impossible, maybe in 2015 those may exist...

Looolz, I thought the S22 would be a 4-lane expressway! Not that it's necessary, especially not yet, but now I'm kinda disappointed. Ok, it's a very nice road.

Like with most two-laned S-roads. It's a good thing they have thought about that, it saves you from problems when traffic numbers rise (which happened a lot in the Netherlands)

Yeah, for me, those tiny border villages is the only major bad thing about Polish signage. Domestic destinations are signed pretty well.

I know, I just thought it would be 4-laned and restored in all its glory, hehe. So widening is already planned, or there's reserve just in case? Btw, Grzechotki is now a new border crossing? Previously vehicles crossed the border by Gronowo?

Hey guys, please tell me what the hell is wrong with the A4 pavement close to the German border, heading to Wroclaw? It's even worse than our D1! The oppsite direction is so fine!

You mean the A18, or the very small section near Zgorzelec?
