You're talking about forrests while there is 1800 km of S- and A-roads being built or constructed in Poland ?!

Speed limit-130 km/h
In American English it's also called freeway or confusingly expressway too.
They don't heave two different types of roads like we have motorway and lower class expressway. For hem it is all one category of limited access highway but some of them are build to interstate highways standards.

Off topic: I think the Dutch speed limits are absurd. Sometimes 100 km/h or even 80 km/h on motorways, and on some tiny local roads (between Woerden and Alphen a/d Rijn for example) 60 or 70 km/h

Impresive results for only one year. Our gov. should learn a bit from you guys in implementation of projects.
Those 1x2 sections are going to be transformed in the near future in 2x2? Do these 1x2 sections include same level interchanges?
What are the maximum figures concerning car traffic for Poland in order to make an A or S road feasable to be build?

Yep but in most cases we are talking about further future
And yep again - S-roads 1x2 include level interchanges (crossing intersections only in special cases but very rare).

Yeah, that's right. This whole 2×5 section on the A2 will have Vmax 100 km/h. Noone is going to drive 100 km/h on an early Sunday morning.

@bebe.2006: They finished quite a few streches of the S7 this year. Good to hear. Last year was a real mess

It says roads in operation, and it's 2008 not 2009

It's an interesting map though. Big explosion of new 2×2 roads between 05/2006 and 01/2007. Was the A2 opened in this period?

Yeah

07/2006, 103 km


------------

U/C



Somewhere around summer 2009 there will be additional 374 km of A roads U/C (lacking section of A2 between Warsaw and Berlin and A1 from Łódź to Katowice) Can't wait!

This, together with sections now being U/C will sum up for a tremendous number of 533 km of motorways U/C
