1.True, but on the other hand they cause most damage of road network that need to be repaired, so do we have to subsidize these companies with our taxes? Isn't that similar to situation with coal miners, farmers or priests teaching religion at schools and payed with our money? 2. As stated before, big chunk of users of polish roads are truckers from abroad. Do we need to support them too in such a low charges?

No, but everything should be taken into consideration. Just raising this points. The German minimum wage has already a possible negative impact on the Polish transport sector.

Shipping companies will choose the modality and route based on many factors that contribute to overall cost. They do not care about cost per km. Rather they care about the bottom line. Poland's competitive position in freight markets is determined by geography and infrastructure as much as (and probably more than) by toll charges. My guess is Poland could probably double truck tolls with little impact on competition. Perhaps some freight would switch from road to ship via the Baltic Sea, but I doubt it would be dramatic.

And introduce proper weight stations, automated weight checks and "true and frequent" random controls - just like it take place in others developped countries - for the overall benefit for safety of others road users and better roads condition. Moreover, introduce real and discouraging fines for the lawbreakers - not the ridicule one that are in place right now, and which cost less than to make 2 "legal" transport instead, it's only encouraging such nasty behaviour .
I have more than enough of all the trucks companies that totally don't care about it and play with the lives of others

Bridge on Wisła in Kamień (DW747) opens to traffic today. It fills the 60km gap between bridges in Puławy and Annopol. DW747 was modernised to GP class or built from scratch on the whole section between Lublin and Wisła (~50 km). DW747 becomes the most direct route from Lublin to Kielce (although some improvements in the Mazowsze and Świętokrzyskie regions are still to be made).

Nice upgrade. This seems droga krajowa-worthy.

I definitely would not go via Radom (at least until the S7 bypass of Radom has been completed). Each of the several times I've been through Radom, it has been a traffic nightmare. Does the DW747 terminate at Iłża?

Yes. You can then use some local roads to reach S7 in Skarżysko-Kamienna.

Or choose DW754, DW751 and DW753 through Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski:
https://www.google.pl/maps/dir/51.12...20.9896875,10z
(The problem is that DW754 near Ostrowiec has an Ukrainian standard, and DW751/753 is almost a constant built-up area).

By the way, here is a video from modernised DW753/751 through Świętokrzyskie mountains, check ny channel on youtube for more videos

That would make sense. I hope they will build a new section of DK82 to bypass Iłża, flyover the railroad, and then interchange with the S7 near Skarżysko-Kamienna.
