And the opening dates of S3 in Gorzów Wielkopolski and S7 near Szydłowiec remain unknown. S3 has a deadline in September, but it was supposed to be opened earlier...

This is weird....

First, Kołobrzeg and Koszalin are 40 kilometers apart, but if you would follow the main roads, you would have to travel via Koszalin to reach Kołobrzeg, either via DK11 or DK25. So this means that both destinations on the sign follow different routes, even when both would eventually go via Koszalin, because DK25 ends at DK11 again at Bobolice.

However the DK11 route is shorter, approximately 380 kilometers to Koszalin if you follow S11 around Poznań. However if you choose DK25, it is a significantly longer route, at around 440 kilometers to Kołobrzeg. So the difference between DK11 and DK25 routes would be more like 60 kilometers, not 1 kilometer.

So either way I don't see this sign making much sense...

It is common for Polish signage not to make any sense. It is certainly the worst aspect of our motorways. No wonder that the Road signage thread on Polish subforum is one of the largest... And there is another thread with a proposal of a new system of signage developed by our forum users. Sadly GDDKiA is not interested in it.

Another example - S7 that opened today. They used the "experimental signage" with exit numbering. The problem is that the numbering on S7 is supposed to start in Gdańsk and increase toward south. Yet they somehow managed to screw up this simple concept and installed signage with numbering that increases toward north I wonder if they fixed it before today's opening.

Hey Poland,

can somebody advise, what would be the better way between Warsaw and Vilnius?

Also, S8 or A1->A2 between Katowice and Warsaw?

Thanks

Katowice - Wawa; DK1 -> S8 -> DK50 -> A2
Wawa - Vilnius: Over Łomża, Grajewo, Augustów, Sejny.

There are construction works on DK8 between Mszczonów and Warsaw, you can avoid them either by driving from S8 to A2 via DK50 or not using S8 at all (and choosing A1 - A2)

Why doesn't this road have an emergency lane?

It looks like the Inowrocław bypass, that is not an official expressway, but GP class road.

Has a company been found to fill the gap in S7 between Szydlowiec South and Skarzysko Kamienna?

Is it still under tender?

Inwroclaw bypass could be extended further south to include a bypass for Strzelno as DK15 and DK25 pass right through it

A bypass for Strzelno was first proposed in 2014 but since then silence on the subject

2x2 profile is supposed to be opened by the end of June (but it doesn't mean the end of construction works).
Are both carriageways in service now? If yes, when was the 2nd c/w opened?

They are not in service and it is unknown when they will be opened. The official deadline is end of September. Considerning that the construction works are ~99% completed, it may be opened earlier, but it's up to the clerks from Office of Building Control and they have some stipulations.

There are long traffic jams, as it is the main route to the western section of Baltic Sea coast. Whoever plans to drive via this route, better change their plans. It is faster to drive through the city.

S11 Kępno bypass (northern section) is taking shape.

This will be a temporary terminus, where the old (DK11) meets the new (S11).


Moving along, looking east.


A bridge over the expressway carrying droga powiatowa 5676P.


And above the railways, 1.7 km further. Looking north.


S8/S11 interchange begins here.
