The DK74 around Kraśnik. I wonder why they built such a big bridge, looking at Google Earth, the crossing road is unpaved and doesn't serve any houses.

And I wonder why they've painted it in such an awful color scheme...

Look at wider context:



Why Kraśnik doesn't upgrade this road I don't know Probably because lack of money.

Colours are discreet here. 'Screaming' colours are worst IMO.

Ok, I've checked it and part of this road should be ready now (from this bridge to Owczarnia).Tender was announced last year.


This is 'droga powiatowa' (road class) No. 2720L

Rome wasn't built in a day. The quality of the bridge suggests a likelihood of plans for upgrading the road leading to it.

Such bridges and other infrastructure projects without any visible purpose are called "Vorleistung" in Germany. That means that the rest of the needed infrastructure will be built in the future and then it will make sense.

I guess there is a Polish word for that but I can´t find it.

Why wasn´t the border crossing rebuilt like that one on the A4 (Ludwigsdorf / Jedrzychowice)? With a continuous highway and without the need to drive through such a chicane (2:45).

They're definitely the worst, but here nicely painted concrete elements, in very ' silent ' sandy color, are combined with very different green panels, which makes everything ' screaming '.

It's not the first time and surely not the last that this happen.

I remember, they built in 2010 an enormous viaduct on the Warsaw Southern Expressway Ring that was supposed to handle entry/exit
and a new 2X2 street with separate cycling path, but it wasn't used for years, because it ran out of budget .




http://warszawa.gazeta.pl/warszawa/1...z_budzetu.html



The planned "2X2 street with separate cycling paths and bus lanes" as it looked till quite recently :






At least, they finished to pave the last portion, but it looks nothing according to the plans :

I really like Polish drivers' ingenuity in using the track before final construction

In Quebec, Canada there are several wasted overpasses constructed in 1960's and 1970's, example, here: https://maps.google.pl/maps?ll=45.67...11362&t=k&z=17

There are 4 viaducts but only one being used They plan to extend highway eventually and use 3 of the viaducts, but may already require replacement as they are more than 40 years old already

Actually, this road was "open" when they drove "off-road" on dirt .
Also, it will take several years for this road to be "completed", or as well it may never be .

Plans:


The remaining sections aren't even built so far:
