I agree with you. Condition of polish roads has much been improved and motorways too. For example A4 from Golnice to Wroclaw has new toplayer and A4 from Katowice to Krakow is modernizing. A6 is also renewing now. Is that true the A1 motorway, the first 25 kilometres from Gdansk(Rusocin) to
junction with DK 22 in Swarozyn will be open in 09/2007 ?

It hasn't been officially confirmed yet, though the rumour has it that it might be open for traffic this autumn.

I think DK 19, in future S 19, should be European Route and have European Number because it's strategic road for eastern Poland and not only. I belive in future DK19/S19 will have this number.

Quite an important axe indeed. But it doesn't serve too many important cities.
Any chance the Belorussians will connect this motorway with an motorway to Hrodna? (and maybe even furter to Vilnius).

But there are some plans, what after 2015 with motorways and expressways. I saw article about upgrading S3 expressway to motorway ! It's very ambitious plan.

From Świnoujście on the Baltic sea to Lubawka on the Czech border. It goes via Szczecin - Gorzów Wielkopolski - Zielona Góra - Legnica.

Total length is 470km of which only 21km are build to date.

And stupid bureaucracy... EU membership has big advantages like more trade, free borders, subsidies, but also some downsides. But at all, i think EU is okay. Who knows what would happened if we weren't unified in the EU. Think of all the wars that has been going on before EU.

from katowice to krakow it´s great ... but the way till you´re in katowice coming from "wieden" is absolutly bad

The DK1? (Bielsko-Biala - Katowice) looks like a 2x2 ordinary road to me on the map. It should be replaced by a new S1 in the next 5 years or so...

What's the difference between a normal 2x2 road and the future S1(expressway).
What changes will they make?

Won't the expressways have any same level intersections for example?

As far as i know, expressways have a bit smaller lanes and narrow emergency lanes, and a speed limit of 110km/h, and some more junctions etc. But in fact it should be a motorway-grade road, in other countries it would go for a motorway.
I think you can compare it to the French Voie Expresses, or the German Gelbe Autobahnen, or the Czech rychlostní silnice, or the Italian Superstradas.
