Just to compare. Photos of Road 61, north-east from Warsaw, being widened now to 2x2. Class GP (discussed few post ago).

Of course. Sorry for my little mistake - old habit to word highway.
btw. I thought word highway is the same like motorway.
Turning to topic this road near Warsaw looks quite nice, but this curbs
on the first picture...

These terms get confused all the time... let's clarify it off now





Autostrada-motorway, autobahn, autoroute, autopista, autosnelweg, autocesta, avtocesta, dalnica, autopalya, avtomagistrala, motorvag

Speed limit-130 km/h




Droga ekspresowa-expressway, superstrada, rychlostni silnica, schnellstrasse, autout, autovia, hitra cesta, brza cesta

Speed limit 110/100 km/h



Sorry for quality of these translation, but people often here are confused about road categories

I'd say the wiki signs are more like the real ones, but as radi said, who cares

No, after all I've only been here for 2.5 years.

Dutch only has ë, that's about it. There are some others, but that aren't originally Dutch words
