Nice pics guys. Looks good! There are some very nice bridges over there. Unfortunately also some graffiti artists (something that we in the Netherlands are also not entirely free of )

Thanks for the pics, guys. Very colorful. Why is there a staircase in the Warszawski tunnel? Do you also have pics of old expressways?

Firstly, there is a bus stop there.
Secondly, safety measures.

Meaning which?
An old expressway might be Warsaw-Katowice Route aka Trasa Katowicka aka Gierkówka, build in 70'. It is classified today as a GP-road. Only small parts were modernised to highway or expressway standards.

Part of Gierkowka, from Piotrkow to Czestochowa will be upgraded to motorway standard (A1), I hope it will be 2X3

This is the only connection between Warsaw and Upper Silesia and also the best way to get to the mountains driving from north. I hope it will be 2x3. But from the other hand it will be toll m'way so traffic is going to be not as much as we could suppose.

These roads were called expressways before year 2000:

DK 8 Warszawa - Piotrków Trybunalski







Memorial of soldiers of Polish People's army that built that road:

Nice pics, but I meant old expressways in Warsaw.

I once had a small book about Warsaw (no idea where it is ), with a photo of an expressway, and there was an exit for Mokotów (or sth like that).

PS: you have a bus stop in a tunnel? Isn't that dangerous?

I think it can be Siekierkowska Route or Dolina Służewiecka (built in 80s?) but I think people from Warsaw will answer better than me

Firstly, Mokotów - one of best addresses in the city.

Secondly... it must have been either big interchange of Puławska st./Rzymowskiego st./Dolina Służewiecka st (from south) or Trasa Łazienkowska (from north).

Watch the film again. The bus stop has its own parking bay. And it is longer that it seems from the movie.

I haven't yet seen a bus stop in a tunnel though. I hope the air to breathe isn't that bad.

4,5 km more of highway A2 from Lodz to Warszawa, expected to be open on 15th december as baypass of the town Strykow, in which now you have a terrible trafic jam. It is indeed a part of A1 and A2:

As if it couldn't have been done years ago while section Konin-Lodz was being built
It would have saved not only the nerves of the drivers but also saved inhabitants from trucks driving next to their windows 24/7. Not even mentioning the costs...

You probably mean this view of Trasa Łazienkowska, but an older photo. This view was very popular on pictures from the 1970s...
