Oh, yeah, I`m really sorry, Vitoria sounds me really very Portuguese. I don`t know why? maybe because of Vitoria Setubal (footbal club)? Now I see it`s Basque city.

Ok, What`s change for u when see or don`t see motorways on GM? Anyway the most important thing is to show and suggest the best (the most optimal) way by GM. Whether it's a motorway or an ordinary road, does not matter.

To be honest, for me, the request to display on any map, polish expressways as motorways is a manifestation of huge complexes and nothing more.

It matters, because maybe someone will be choosing the road (one of the alternatives, for example) by how it looks on Google Maps.

Why free of toll? Only motorways are tolled in Poland!

??? I don't think that I have to explain YOU which Spanish roads are tolled but... Most of spanish motoways are untolled! "A-" usually untolled, only "AP-" usually tolled.

However, I don't see any combination to how it's indicated on Google Maps...

But I'd also prefer having Polish 2x2 expressways signed like Polish motorways on GM.

A , untolled = expressways ( shown as main roads on gm ) = free motorways
AP , tolled = motorways
this is what i tried to say with my poor english ( sorry for the off topic )

I've seen this discussion in almost all country threads. To me, any dual-carriageway, grade-separated road restricted to motor vehicles is a motorway, regardless on the legal distinctions of certain countries (autopista/autovía, autostrada/superstrada...) and/or the way Google Maps displays roads.

After all, the terms "motorway" and "expressway" are loosely translated because they mean different things in the UK and in the US.

Nysa bypass (DK46) will open on 1st June. DK41 will open in Autumn.

Inowrocław - June is possible, but it depends how fast will they manage to do all the pre-opening bureaucracy...

There is also S7 from Nidzica to Napierki? (just needs white road lines and exit signs I believe)
2nd half of June

And he wrote exactly about it.

Expressways in Poland are almost like motorways. Actually, most of them are better than many motorways in western-European countries. What differentiates them from the motorways is the lack of toll.

Although it's a "rule of thumb", there is no official regulation that would say that motorways are toll road and expressways are free of toll. Theoretically there may be toll expressways, our law allows it. It's just so that no toll expressways are planned, and that if the government wanted to make them toll, too many people would hate them for it.

Mainly because our government still cannot decide which toll collection system to use after they (the previous government, in fact) resigned from building toll gates. Vignettes? Electronic vignettes? Charges for km, but based on what: license plate detection? electronic devices installed in cars? The discussion is going on for a few years and nothing can be decided.

Mayor of Kisielice (a town in northern Poland) was sick of having to constantly repair unpaved communal roads. So he decided to use rubber conveyor belts as pavement.

Yeah, that's a stupid idea. A gravel road needs regular maintenance which you cannot do if the road is covered in rubber conveyor belts.

What will happen is that potholes will form under the belts with no way of fixing them.
