This toll plaza will never operate and is to be destroyed anyway, because implementation of manual tolls is waived in favor of electronic only tolls.

This is just welcome sign . Most of cities has same sort of theses signs with different design. Why are you asking particularly about Katowice?

I think the only thing that's missing is the building of the new car checkpoint at Korczowa/Краківець. I've got the feeling that until it's built, trucks have to come off the A4 slightly before the border crossing and use the old DK94 to approach. Otherwise, the A4 is complete and open.

As for electronic tolling, nothing is certain. Vignettes are the most logical choice, but I'm not sure there's money in the State budget to buy out the concessions of the private motorway operators. Electronic tolling for cars won't happen IMO.

The Katowice has the entrance panel on the all main roads owned by the city. It`s all the entrances to the city exept of the A4 motorway and S86 expressway managed by GDDKiA.
National Road no. 86
National Road no. 79

Not to mention that this company finished infamous (botched by Alpine) Mszana bridge on A1 which was turning point where company showed that it can handle ambitious projects.

That includes getting the design and all required permits... How is that bad pace, considering it's a reconstruction under traffic?

Clicking is not a problem at all What I wanted to say is that this company from what I see does specialize in bridges which of course there is nothing wrong with that. However I don't recall that company winning tender as a prime contractor for bigger road project before.

Intercor is frequently bidding for Polish road projects. They don't seem to get awarded many projects though.

So they value their work by not trying to win with cheap, unrealistic offer. Good!

S6

City of Gdansk is trying to find source for financing of upgrade of existing exit "Szadolki" on S6- Tricity bypass. That exit was built as a temporary solution back in 70s as an access road for dumping trucks for nearby facility. It survived till today but technically it is not up to expressway standards. One of the ideas was to just close it but now after reevaluation the decision was made to keep it.
There are two options of upgrade, both also include widening big portion of S6 from two to three lanes. First option is more expensive.
Estimated cost: 160mlnPLN



Existing situation:


First option:


Second option:
