S3, bypass of Gorzów Wielkopolski. It was supposed to be completed in April but as you can see it won't.

(photos by GDDKiA)

Junction "West" - a quite unique design.


Bridge over Warta


The railway to the left used to cut right through the "West" junction but it was dismantled when the construction of second half of the junction started (see on GSV).

Insider news about S7 Radom - Skarżysko

Opening in April is not possible, Dragados aims to open the section Szydłowiec-North - Skarżysko-Kamienna-North on 20th May.
The section Radom-South - Szydłowiec-North will be opened later (maybe in summer) because they need to build slip roads on the junction (this is part of another contract, but Dragados has it, too).

Reichsautobahn Berlin–Königsberg, section Szczecin - Chociwel is going to be modernised soon, and many of the disused viaducts will be demolished.
Here you can see a photo report (from #1351).

Some photos:

So do those date from the third reich then? Or are they more modern?

yes, it was partially finished by "dritte Reich" during the war, and subsequently essentially ignored since it runs from nowhere to nowhere (contemporary intention and plan was to connect Berlin with Koenigsburg, crossing Poland)

The road has an important place in history as being an important part demands presented by Hitler to Polish FM Jozef Beck in 1939 shortly before the start of the Second World War.

How far will the improvements to east go? DK79 entrance to Krakow through Nowa Huta is so very slow...

Krakow eastern bypass will extend as far as DK79 - beyond that the route is not clear

Today a contract was signed to upgrade DK79 to 2x2 between S7 and DK75.

Environmental permit was issued for S6 - western part of motorway ringroad around Szczecin (with a tunnel under Odra river), though it is very unlikely that this road will be built before the permit expires...

I've got a question do people still prefer the old name Czech Republic or am I the only one to do so?

I do.

In Polish we have always said just Czechy ("Czechs") instead of the full name Republika Czeska (Czech Republic), same as in case of most countries, so nothing has changed here. But this new English name "Czechia" just sounds weird. So I prefer staying with Czech Republic in this language, as it has always been.

We seem to have gone off topic here

Are there plans to divert DK43 and DK45 around Wieluń to take all transit traffic out of the town?

The new northern DK74 bypass will only really divert Wrocław and Warsaw bound traffic leaving the town with the problem of Złoczew/Opole-bound traffic (on DK45) and Częstochowa-bound traffic (on DK43) still running through the centre of Wieluń
