Correct. I have driven on it. I also hope that construction of the S61 will resume soon.

Construction of Suwałki bypass may start in late 2016. Construction of remaining sections will start no sooner than in 2018.

If it is, then OK, but if not, there is no reason for the A4 to end there.
Then the A2 should be constructed in whole.
AADT in Terespol & Kukuryki was ~5000

AADT in Korczowa & Medyka was ~9000

(Figures from 2010)

Also remember that A4 was part of the EURO2012 project

Oh, I see....OK then
However, most of the new parts of the A4 were given to traffic after the Euro 2012, right?

Some shots of A1 between junctions Mszana and Gorzyczki.

Entering in Mszana, view on the infamous bridge which caused so many problems.

View from the services in Mszana. I was there maybe 15 minutes and only one car entered the service area. There was also only one truck parked. I can't see this place making any money.

From this vantage point you can see the impressive earthworks needed on this stretch of A1.

And the last set from junction Sosnica between A1, A4, DK44 and DW902 (DTS).
We'll take collector lanes to see the signage.

Slip road to DW902 starts with one lane but then widens to two. I don't really get why. It doesn't add capacity.

End for now. I will soon add some shots from DTS (DW902)

9. KL-17


10. Pod WD-29, co ciekawe da się tu dojechać uwałowanym piaskiem po DZ-120 i DL-128 (zakazów brak).


11. Idziemy na WA-21, przed nami wjazd na Shella.

Wow, how nice is that motorway.....oh btw, is there any information about the Lodz-Katowice part?
Is it going to be constructed in the recent future??

A1 in Silesia region is a really nice freeway/motorway indeed.

At the moment there are tenders out for the stretch from the current terminus near Katowice airport towards Czestochowa, including its bypass. Funding is secured so it will get build as soon as all the bureaucratic obstacles are cleared.

Further north, between Czestochowa and Lodz, it is all one big unknown. Which is weird as it is one of the busiest long distance roads in Poland.

Yes, but the DK1 between Czestochowa and Lodz is already 2x2. Construction of the A1 will make it 2x3, remove the several traffic lights, and limit access to motor vehicles.

Few shots from the DTS (DW902) between the A1 in Gliwice and center of Katowice.

It is not motorway, nor S-class expressway, but a rather weird status dual carriageway.

On the recently open stretch there are some problems with subsidence. Apparently the main contractor should do remedy works as it is still under warranty.

Actually I realized I have a few more photos, this time from the new bypass of my home town: Jastrzebie Zdroj.

It is new stretch of DW933:

That's a pretty high standard for a local road. Well done.

One more time S8 near Warsaw.
Just want to show a different type of noise barriers that has been built here. Still, too much and too big in some places IMO but at least something different than that ugly green plastic-metal type that spread out throughout all country...
