They should just close the southern carriageway and make the northern bidirectional. Problem solved.

I disagree 100%. First, it would allow the bureaucrats to consider the problem solved and never rebuild the southern carriageway. Second, the current arrangement is indisputably better for westbound drivers than your proposal. For eastbound drivers, it is certainly safer to have two lanes separated from oncoming traffic than to share two lanes with oncoming traffic -- especially with Polish overtaking habits.

mcarling is right. There is so many examples of temporary solutions in Poland that lasts forever.

Because a Murphy law states that temporary solutions are the most permanent. Especially in this country

I guessed it was classic Caro, but indeed, it's Atu. But in first version (there were two types of fronts produced, first from January 1996 to March 1997, second from April 1997 to April 2002), so perhaps it's 1996. I said also about Fiat Ducato, but Polonez is a better hint. But I'm pretty sure that it's not any year later, because of the boom of new cars in Poland in late 90's. I can't remember any significant number of old Polonezs from then, while here there are two such ones (and notice that the right one has black license plates with pretty number from Bydgoszcz voivodeship - BGL 4444).

There is no Polonez Atu on this pic. Red car is Polonez Caro (1991-), and the blue one is Ford Orion (1984-).

Red is probably one of oldest Atus. And blue seems to be Sierra, not Orion.

Blue is a Sierra.

By the way were the Caro and Atu a Fiat 124 underneath or had things progressed to perhaps a Mirafiori by then?????

Rather 1300/1500 than 124. Fiat 124 was manufactured in USSR as Zhiguli, while Poland produced a car named Polski Fiat 125p (then FSO 1500) which wasn't the exact copy of Fiat 125. In fact it was Fiat 1300/1500 chassis and engine with 125 body. Polonez got modified PF 125p chassis with new body.

Roadworks on A4.
As you can see separation of the contraflow is rather miserable.
Total lack of physical barriers, even in critical points.












End of contraflow


But then lane closure due to replacement of the sound barriers.
Now, I wonder how often all those hundreds of km of barriers will have to be replaced or fixed.

WOW! How old is that trashed beyond use sound barrier?????????? I could not see these surviving a year in Ireland where we have regular wind events but Poland gets a good European Windstorm at least every 2 or 3 years too.

I think more than 10 years old.

Today a contract was signed with Strabag for construction of Wieluń bypass (DK74). The new road will be a grade-separated single carriageway with 3 lanes (2+1). It will be 13 km long. Completion date - early 2017.

Few shots from the A1 southbound




The 2x2 section south of the Rowien (Zory/Rybnik) junction


In some place I saw massive banner advertising BP petrol station on Mszana services as "the last BP station before the border"
Unfortunately I didn't have my camera ready

Here the official sign:






Approaching the infamous bridge:


And we are getting off here as I'm heading to my "less than splendid" (to put it mildly) home town

Progress on construction of S8 Salomea-Wolica. Please pardon my translation below. It may be not the most accurate and proper but hopefully understood for most of us:

High resolution here: http://ssc.teokryt.pl/tsw/standia/TSW-2014-11-30.png


PINK - design
PURPURE- existing, to be reconstructed
BROWN - first stage (earth removal, leveling, etc)
YELLOW - prime layer (concrete, gravel)
GREEN - first layer
TEAL - temporary, for test layer
BLUE - top layer
OBIEKTY INZYNIERYJNE (%) = structures (bridges, walls etc)
