Yes, but there are environmental and NIMBY problems. It can still be completed around 2011-2022, though.

Meanwhile, in Gliwice - new meets old. New retaining wall to the left (part of DTŚ project) and old German retaining wall to the right (I don't know when it was built, but it was already there in the '30s.)

Which one will break first?

Lazienkowski Bridge is scheduled to open to traffic in November 2015; off course some works will be finished after that moment.

Connector between S8 and DK7 (Janki Małe - Sękocin) has just opened for traffic. 3 months before schedule.

- southern entrance/exit road from Warsaw (S7 motorway) - 30 km
- S7 motorway from Kraków to northern voivodship border - 56 km

(this means that whole S7 between Warsaw and Kraków is either completed, under construction or in tender phase)

Launch of tenders for appr. 170 km of expressways in one day is Polish record to date. The explanation is that the parliamentary elections are scheduled on October, 25.

I noticed there is new satellite imagery of S5 under construction north of Wrocław. The satellite images are only 1 month old.

On thing I don't understand is why built such "gigantic" roads in the city center? Does people living nearby really don't care about tranquility, quality of life, pollution, landscape among others in one of the most jammed city in Europe?
IMHO, would be better to put absolute priority on Łódź bypass (inexistent till now), and improve the actual city's ring road - not side roads, as it's the case here - but instead, create more green areas, conviviality points, promenades, nice places - which seriously lack in most Polish cities - on other parts of the city.
As it has been shown on many Polish cities, creating huge at-grade downtown roads doesn't reduce congestions at all, quite the contrary > see Warsaw as a good example.

It seems like a multi-storey bus station with an intersection on top.

It seems not only for buses. Anyway, the roads on top and all this construction is by far excessive, IMHO. Don't forget that this is in the middle of Łódź downtown...

There should be at least one decent east-west road in the city. And this is it. But I agree that this interchange seems like a triumph of form over substance.

Any city needs "correct" roads
If you strangle the city with inadequate roads... perhaps in the London manner, that isn't a good quality of life for the people living nearby either. Taking 20 min to enter your parking space every day and only being able to see a line of idling minicabs and smoky buses is terrible.

I really don't understand the drawings though, the whole bottom side seems pointless (unless it's just bus station parking / waiting / car kiss-and-ride zone)

Already existing downtown ring road - in which, all major road intersecting at North-South extremities (and not East-West) - fulfill perfectly its role for transit traffic. Btw., they are already many East-West roads through downtown in Łódź. The problem though is that all the traffic is obligated to pass through the town.

I agree with you that cities need "correct" roads. However huge roads passing through city centers does not bring any solution to traffic problems; worse, they increase them much more then what they are supposed to "relief", by attracting even more cars downtown and creating even more congestions > that's exactly what's happening in Warsaw. Sadly, at the cost of all their inhabitants, city "charm", and quality of life among others negative effects...

This road is not supposed to serve transit traffic through Łódź in general. It is supposed to serve traffic between west and east of the city. If you need to drive from point A to point B, using the inner ringroad (which, by the way, is also packed with traffic lights and therefore not faster than other roads) is ridiculous.
If you bulid one decent east-west road, you can "relieve" the others and make them more "city-friendly".
