It would be good if, whoever is behind this map, could present it in some modern technology.

S5: Bydgoszcz-North - Maksymilianowo – 6.2km (August 2017 to May 2019) – projectmap
S5: west of Bydgoszcz-Błonie - Szubin-North – 9.7km (August 2017 to October 2018) – projectmap

PS
DW935: Rybnik-Zamyslow – Zory 10.2km (April 2017 to November 2019)

I would suggest writing about it in the Polish section, in the proper thread.

But take into account that it's made by a hobbyist, and it had to involve much work.

Rewriting it e.g. in HTML5 and JavaScript will also involve much work. The technology is so different that it would have to be done practically from scratch.

I am also not a fan of Adobe Flash (this software and this format doesn't belong to Shockwave already for a very long time, it's long since they got bought out by Adobe), but many websites still use it, so it's still difficult not to have it installed. I am not sure, but I think even some YouTube videos still load in Flash instead of the HTML5 mode (it was definitely so 1 or 2 years ago).

It was especially problematic for the Linux users - the support for Adobe Flash on this platform was always much worse than on Windows, it was always working much slower. But even on Linux, Flash works now much better than in the past, not to mention Windows where I never had any problems.

Although... something like 2 years ago, I opened an account in one of the Polish banks (namely, in mBank). At one moment I had some problems. I tried using their online support platform instead of calling them (I must pay for the call, while the online platform is free). But it turned out, this platform was in... the Silverlight technology. An obsolete Microsoft technology (with which MS once wanted to compete with Flash), no longer developed already for a few years. And it never had proper support for Linux (there were some ersatzs like Moonlight, but they never worked well). So I had to call them. At the end, the consultant informed me about the online platform, asked if I tried using it. Then I had to tell them that I would like very much to try it, but it uses an obsolete technology and I am simply unable to use it...

S8 motorway Marki - Radzymin (part of Via Baltica in Warsaw agglomeration). Deadline is in October, but will they manage to finish it in time? We'll see.

Photos by zbyhoo78

1. Junction Marki (DW629). The ramp to the left will have to be demolished.


2.


3. Space reservation for interchange Drewnica, connecting S8 with S17 - eastern part of Warsaw ringroad


4. 2x5 lanes wide on this short section


5. Junction Zielonka (DW631)


6. Looking back - downtown Warsaw is seen in the distance


7. There is a lot of forests around Warsaw


8.


9. Junction Kobyłka


10. Contract boundary. Both sections are built by Italian companies. The one closer to Warsaw is built by Salini and they are behind schedule. They build other sections of motorways around Poland, and there are huge delays as well (most notably on S7 near Kielce). The other section is built by Astaldi and they are doing good.

11.


12. Junction Wołomin. New alignment of DW635 is supposed to pass through here, but it doesn't even have the environmental decision yet. This junction will probably remain unused for some time.


13.


14.


15.


16.


17. Junction Radzymin South (DW635)


18. Existing S8 Radzymin bypass. Opened in 1998. Almost 20 years later, a part of it will be downgraded.


19.


20. S8 towards Białystok. The section Radzymin - Wyszków (not visible in this photo) was opened in 2009.


21. One final look towards Warsaw (with the city's skyline well visible, the distance is about 24 km)

Can't wait for this to get opened. Approx. 2 weeks ago, while traveling to Slovakia, we lost 1,5 hour in Marki.

DK33 Kłodzko bypass (on the shortest route Wrocław - Brno - Wien)

Junction with DK8


View towards south




One of two long overpasses (this one over railway 309 Kłodzko - Kudowa and Bystrzyca Dusznicka river)


View towards north, Bardzkie mountains in the background, Kłodzko to the right


Second overpass (this one over railway 276 Wrocław - Międzylesie and Nysa Kłodzka river)


View towards north


View towards south. The highest peak to the left - it is Śnieźnik at PL/CZ border (1426 m a.s.l.), though I'm not 100% sure.


Connector to DK46 at eastern side of the town

Because this section was designed many years ago, when there was not much money for road construction and before a decision was made to build the whole S19 between Rzeszów and Lublin.
It is constantly criticised, because it is an evident waste of money. It would make more sense to prepare a new design documentation for 2x2 and start the construction a few years later...

Today two contracts have been signed for reconstruction of two remaining sections of old concrete Reichsautobahn Berlin - Königsberg near Szczecin. Today this road is numbered A6 and S3. The road will be widened (it will get a hard shoulder) and the 80 years old pavement will be replaced.

1st section - about 1.5 km: https://www.google.pl/maps/dir/53.38...e3!4m2!4m1!3e0

Kijewo interchange will be completely reconstructed. It will remain a cloverleaf, but it will be larger.


2nd section - about 3.5 km: https://www.google.pl/maps/dir/53.40...a=!4m2!4m1!3e0

It is now signed as "expressway" S3, after the reconstruction will be signed as "motorway" A6, despite having technical parameters of Polish "expressway" and not "motorway". But it is the same with the rest of A6 - lanes are 3.5m wide, which qualifies the road as an "expressway", yet it is signed as a "motorway". Actually the technical parameters of this "motorway" are lower than the nearby S3 "expressway" to Gorzów Wielkopolski... another proof that the whole "motorway/expressway" thing makes no sense and should be changed.

The trees were cut in 2011 according to Google Earth historic imagery.

What about this interchange?
https://www.google.pl/maps/@53.33324...7i13312!8i6656

Will it be rebuilt to motorway standards?
