Less than a year and we should be driving a brand-new expressway between Jędrzejów and voivodeships’ border. Here are some photos from last month, covering S7 under construction.

The question is - how soon? July does still seem realistic

New alignment of S8 near Radzymin. Warsaw can be seen in the distance.
The existing ~3 km of motorway at the current southern end of S8 here will be downgraded. There will not be a "dreieck" type of interchange here. The visible viaduct will be demolished and replaced with a roundabout.

Thank God that the NATO got all environmental permits in due time and was able to bridge Vistula Normally, the bridge could not be build so quickly even in Poland

NATO has more firepower than all the environmental bureaucrats and all the gods put together. "Permits? We don't need no stinking permits." (paraphrasing the 1948 film Treasure of the Sierra Madre)

But it seems so bad... they could even make some very tight 1930's style ramps for less cost than the destruction/levelling/roundabout and it would work better...

Next extension of A+S roads will be probably as written in The Concept of National Spatial Development:
A50 Great Warsaw Ring (along current DK50 and DK62)
S5 Wrocław-Boboszów
S8 Wrocław-Jakuszyce
S22 Tczew-Elbląg
S24 Gorzów Wlkp.-Poznań
S28 Krosno-Sanok
S46 Kłodzko-Opole-Częstochowa
S73 Kielce-Tarnów-Piwniczna
S74 Walichnowy-Piotrków Tryb.
Total lenght would be around 9000 km, it would be done in ca. 2035-2045.



Other propositions of GDDKiA and SSC users:
- S46 Częstochowa - Kielce
- S9 Rzeszów - Kielce
- S12 Sieradz - Kalisz - Leszno - Głogów - Bolesławiec
- A4 Southern bypass of Upper Silesian conurbation.

I agree that it does not make much sense.

Looking at the drawing it does make sense to me.
DK8 won't be directly connected to S8 and those two roundabouts make sense.
Better question: will new part of S8 have six lanes or just four? I think traffic there is pretty high when I remember driving there about a month ago.

And about above picture of national spatial plan: are some of (at that time) existing expressways planned to be converted to motorways after 2030 (fat red lines)?

2x3 all the way from Warsaw to Radzymin-South.

The only possible "conversion" would be similar to what happened in Czechia lately. We could just rename all 2x2 "expressways" to "motorways" since basically they are the same. (Yes, I know that there are minor differences but they are unnoticeable to an average driver.)
