Maybe that impression got stuck in my head because on the same day we drove to Lublin where some roads have grooves holes. Or maybe just because it was unexpected due to the fact that most main roads are in a great condition.


We have some bad roads.

Not only Warsaw. That's why works continued on many sections, including A1 east of Łódź, A4 east of Rzeszów, S5 south of Korzeńsko and S7 south of Jędrzejów.

I'm not sure what was planned, but here you can see what is planned now. The road going east will be an extension of this street: https://maps.google.pl/maps?q=zielon...347.49,,0,8.21

By the way... toll on A2, section Nowy Tomyśl - Konin has increased by 3 PLN (1 PLN at each gate). Damned concession...

You can also take the free alternative: A2 to Strykow - Lodz - Pabianice S8 - A8 Wroclaw - A4, if you are going South of Berlin/Zielona Gora.

By the way, what is the best connection from A2 to S8, since the state of the road is very bad for its most direct route through Lodz, and to avoid traffic congestion and red lights?

Ŕ propos, you can also take DK8-S8 from Warsaw and then A1-DK1, but the getaway from the capital is not very nice (quite bad road, and lots of traffic lights), and often congested. Actually, is the connection between DK1 and S8 already open?

And probably many people will choose this route as soon as they discover it.

This is a popular and probably the most relaxed route: https://maps.google.pl/maps?saddr=A2...via=1&t=m&z=10
Some people also suggest this: https://maps.google.pl/maps?saddr=A2...via=1&t=m&z=10
And during the night the best route should be DK14 through Łódź.

I'm not sure what do you mean, but this connection is opened since April.

Thank you.

So, it might be better to take the old Gierkowka DK8-S8 to Piotrkow Tryb., then the connection to S8; instead of going out of A2 on rural 2-lane roads passing through towns and villages.
