The financial crisis will hit us all badly. Croats will have to wait for our motorways.

The highway/motorway subforum is the largest Polish subforum I believe. Nothing beats the Dutch wegenforum though. We are in the 330.000 post range there. Funnily enough, roads have high interest under Poles, but there's very few road discussions in the Holland Hoogbouw Forums.

I've also noticed that, but remember this is a skyscraper forum There are some threads in the Dutch subforum, but only three or four.

Bit more than 80 km About 90 km of old motorway from Wrocław to Bolesławiec, motorway near Szczecin, about 20 km and over 30 km from Chrzanów to Balice, also motorway from Września to Konin (circa 50 km) build in 80s too

I believe the A2 Wrzesnia - Konin and A4 Katowice - Kraków had normal pavement.

^ You're probably right about A2, but I'm not sure about that A4 section; I've heard it was rather bad; is it ok now?

This was the A4 between Kraków and Katowice a year ago:

Because they were repaving it I assume that the pavement was quite bad.

Well, it was build in mid 80's and repaved mid 90's so it wasn't so bad.

------------

As to the map on previous page:

Motorways U/C: 210,5 km
Expressways U/C 2x2: 230,4 km
Expressways U/C 1x2: 30 km

Together: 571 km

Why would they repave it again? They had taken out all old pavement and they were busy with the new pavement. Is it finished now?

A4 between Katowice and Kraków used to be signed E22b before the change of road numbering system in 1987. Poeple even not knew that there is motorway between Chrzanów and Balice
