We have therefore exceeded 100 km of new roads opened in 2015 (not counting the A and S class roads)

Nice! That takes some of the pain out of zero kilometers of new A-class roads for 2015 and only a few dozen kilometers of new S-class roads for 2015.

What are the chances that a PiS government would introduce more tolls?

Most potential toll roads seem to be in areas with a lot of PO voters. Except A4 in the southeast.

Zero. It is a populist party. Do not be mislead party support maps - they have support across the whole country, it is just a matter of few pp. difference.

Now that PiS has won the elections in Poland, how will this change the plans for road construction if at all? Do they have different priorities for roads/railways? Could the current tenders out there be severely delayed if they don't approve of it? I'd like to know all your thoughts...

I've read that the Łazienkowski Bridge in Warsaw will open to traffic on Tuesday night. Did they replace all bridge deck segments after the fire in February?

It's a very fast job, by comparison, a fire damaged a much smaller bridge of German A57 beyond repair, and now 3.5 years later traffic is still driving across temporary bridges and the new bridge has yet to begin construction.

If PiS had been in power and had their cronies installed thoughout the bureaucracy over the last year, they probably would already have spent twice as much as has been spent on the Łazienkowski Bridge and construction probably would not yet have begun.

For contracts that have not yet been signed, I expect the price per kilometer to double, the time to complete to double, and the quality to drop drastically.

That's pretty much what I expect, combined with some blatant rigging of tenders to make sure that Polish companies win regardless of price.

I'm pretty sure that there will be a lot of problems with foreign-constructed sections, for instance the fragment of S5 near Poznań towards Leszno.

Based on what evidence? Or is this baseless dislike of PiS rather than serious discussion of the outcome of recent elections?

Yeah, I'm not fan of PIS at all, but I suggest to end this pointless discussion.
Are there any new tenders anyway?

Good, question.
I wonder if there is going to be any break in the flood of tenders we had in the recent weeks and months.
Unfortunately here is no escape of the fact that a lot will depend how fast the new top brass in the national road authority will get up to speed.

Here’s some good and worthy of this thread news: Łazienkowski Bridge is passable as of this morning. It was closed for 255 days due to a fire damage.

The western A4/S19 interchange near Rzeszów is built in a way that the motorway can be extended north. Are there plans for a new DK9 / S9 / A9 alignment? Especially because they just built a new interchange along existing DK9.
