I actually like the way those concrete soundwalls look, unfortunately their backside (facing houses) is just disgusting.

Well, a road like that deserves an upgrade to motorway.....

It would be perfect if after some time it changes to that: but this is only my dream.
Btw, the S8 around Warsaw will be a 2x3 expressway, right?
And 2 more questions about it:
1.When is it going to be ready?
2.How much did that road cost?

The S8 around Warsaw will be a 2x(2+3) expressway. The section now being reconstructed should open later this year. I don't know the cost.

In Poland are high technical requirements for roads to be a motorway

First part (Opacz - Janki) should be opened within a few months (possibly June). The rest of S8 part should be ready before the end of the year. Connector to DK7 probably won't be ready until mid-2016, as they barely just started.

Whole contract (11,5km of S8 and 2,5km of DK7 connector) is worth ~565 millions PLN.

They are using this type of sound walls covered with green vegetables in Switzerland, near my town of Lausanne:

https://www.google.ch/maps/@46.55866...kop10lnQ_A!2e0

The other variant is the semi-glass one:
https://www.google.ch/maps/@46.52466...9l55g-EzbQ!2e0

I also like the green hedge covered with flowers median, but it tend to disapear now because of increase of traffic, supposed danger to workers and more security claimed with the ugly concrete one.

I think that @kostas97 means all S8 around Warsaw, including already built parts, u/c parts and Marki bypass...

By the way, widening of Grota-Roweckiego bridge in Warsaw (which will become part of S8) was finished today. Now the bridge is 46m wide.

The last element that was mounted:

And one crappy aerial view:

Oh man this is real piece of art! I don't think it is going to happen any soon in Poland.

Roughly 188 million euros, right?

No, it`s cca. 137 mln euros
This is price just for short (11,5 km) stretch. All S8 through Warsaw is at least 20 times more expensie...

Yes, this is totally true.
But as I see the whole S8, its the mostly progressed, let's say, expressway of the whole Poland (337 out of 557 km completed-circa 60,5%).
So, it's worth its money, right?

Depends what we are talking about: entire S8 or S8 only in Warsaw.
S8 in Warsaw goes from A2 on west to Marki bypass on east. Take a look:

green - operate
red - u/c
black (on north-east) - Marki bypass
dotted red (on south-west) - S8 as south-west exit of Warsaw u/c to be opened Jun or Jul 2015

At the glance of entire S8: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expressway_S8_%28Poland%29

Below, drawing shows entire Warsaw ring road to be completed by 2023, mayby even by 2020.

I'm talking about the S8 in total....but concerning the Warsaw ring part of the road, I don't see much progress......
