In case of S7 south of Jędrzejów they might face a delay. There was some talk last month that they were going to ask for more time due to unexpected ground issues (different from what was in the plan) and wrongly marked cemetery perimeter which called for redesigning of an access road.

In other news: second carriageway of Międzyrzecz bypass was opened yesterday. As was said, it's still a construction site, so no expressway signs yet.

Great news about opening of second carriageway of Międzyrzecz bypass

Not so great news about S7 south of Jędrzejów

Tomorrow we may have a tiny motorway opening here:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/51.2065/22.4396

Someone already added it to OSM.

EDIT:
A movie by AndyB666



We can see that the new "experimental" signage was implemented on this section. The first time on a "S" class road (Such signage is now present only on A1 Toruń - Łódź)

S8/S11 interchange, photo by cotinus. Existing DK11 is visible on the left, it has no connection with S8.

About 1,6 km of S19 was opened today

https://www.google.pl/maps/@51.20420.../data=!3m1!1e3

(Well, formally this short section will not be signed as "S" until S19 further south gets built.)

Here come the pictures (credit goes to Zegarkowy):

starting point, looking south (-> Rzeszów)


and north. Experimental signage can be seen, first of its kind on an expressway




approaching a wildlife crossing


the new and the old




for the time being, this section will not be officially an expressway




for now in Poland, zipper method is recommended. In 2-3 years it should become mandatory




Lublin Węglin interchange


the road in the background will become DW 747 (voivodeship road) next year, which in distant future may become a DK (national road)

Interesting to see cable barriers on this new segment. Is this the new trend? Or is it for experimental purposes?

Who knows I have seen a lot of cable barriers in Poland. But as you said it's rare. A lot of people want cable barriers, because they are cheaper (and popular in Scandinavia). But some people speak about one disadvantage - they could be more dangerous for motorcyclists.

I still don't quite understand how they're more dangerous to motorcyclists. If you fall and slide into a regular metal crash barrier you are going to hit the posts anyway (because the horizontal barrier is higher up).

I personally like the look of cable barriers but they do have a lot of give which means the central reservation can't be very narrow, otherwise a car or a truck plowing into the barrier is going to cross into incoming traffic anyway, at least briefly.

It's not about the posts. Cable can cut someone in half.

There is conflicting data on cable barriers. Sweden is using them on a large scale, while Norway banned its use in 2006. The Netherlands did not implement it after complaints from motorcyclists.

There are also multiple types of cable barriers. Not all swing far into the other carriageway. Low-tension cable barriers will deflect traffic not as badly, reducing injury in the crashing vehicle, but potentially sending it into oncoming traffic. High-tension cable barriers will swing much less.

Cross-over accidents are always widely reported in the media, increasing pressure to install concrete barriers. But while they are high-profile incidents, more flexible metal crash barriers will avoid a lot of injuries during small crashes, as small car crashes into the barrier are far more common than big semi-trucks crossing over into oncoming traffic. What you save in preventing rare cross-over incidents, you will lose it with the far more frequent small crashes.

I guess "October 2018" is a typo because the contract deadline should be 7th August 2018 and expected opening date is indicated "VIII 18" on your map

It confuses me too. Because all forum statistics state that the deadline is in August. But the contract website states October... probably the forum statistics are wrong.
But anyway, this is Budimex and a relatively short and simple section, so I guess it will be completed way ahead of schedule

Opisy moje, więc nie mam absolutnej pewności

Widok na węzeł Kurów Zachód i odnogę do Puław - kierunek na wschód



W oddali jak wyżej, na dole wiadukt WD-11, w ciągu drogi DG 107701L nad drogą ekspresową, km 22+460



Most w ciągu drogi ekspresowej nad ciekiem bez nazwy MS-10 km 22+000 kierunek zachód



Kilkaset metrów dalej na zachód, ale widok w kierunku wschodnim



Na wschód od węzła Końskowola - widok w kierunku zachodnim



Wiadukt węzła Końskowola WD-09 w ciągu drogi powiatowej DP-2507L, km 20+123 widok na zachód



Za węzłem Końskowola - kierunek zachód. Po prawej u dołu zdjęcia Operator Drona
ze swoim dronowozem Pozdrawiam!



Nieco dalej na zachód



Węzeł Końskowola od strony zachodniej



Spojrzenie w drugą stronę - tuż przed miejscowością Młynki



Miejscowość Młynki widok w kierunku zachodnim. Po lewej dom Pana Romana - rzeczywiście jest bardzo blisko.



Bliżej budowa wiaduktu WD-07 w ciągu drogi ekspresowej, nad drogą powiatową Końskowola - Wronów km 17+375
Dalej budowa WS/PZDd km 17+000
