Then there is also the missing section between Kraków and Myślenice, which is constantly ignored by all governments.

Oh, really? Perhaps you have a bright idea how to solve the problem with Kraków-Myślenice section? The existing road is too curvy and hilly to be upgraded into S. Everywhere around are villages. About a dozen concepts of that section were drawn, from Skawina to Wieliczka, but each one requires hundreds of houses to be demolished, that's why the authorities are so slow in decision on this project.

Behold only a few possible routes, this concept is dated 2012:

I've had a great idea for that, dating back to 2011 or so, that wouldn't require demolition of a lot of houses, but might require a short tunnel (around 600-700 metres) to keep to the gradient regulations, and possibly widening of the western A4 to deal with the congestion which would undoubtedly there.

I'll try to work it out tonight on a map.

It appeared on Vistula river a couple of months ago. But they haven't made the whole river, but pieces here and there, mostly in big cities.

You can see the royal castle in Kraków:

Tunnel is so expensive though and has issues
can not just have extra lane (climbing lane) for trucks and have extra steep grade?

Today, yet another construction agreement of the S7 was signed, this time north of Warsaw. S7 between Płońsk and Strzegowo.

Impressive number of construction agreements being signed lately!
Keep up the good work Poland!

The problem is that despite these new agreements, we're still lacking progress on some of the absolutely worst sections. For instance, a lot of effort has been put into upgrading the DK8 between Warsaw and Piotrków Trybunalski, but the section from Rawa Mazowiecka and Piotrków wasn't so important. Meanwhile, the dreadful Zakopianka is still nowhere near being completed, despite it being almost permanently choked. The section under construction won't do much to solve the problems, and might even make things worse.

Likewise with the S1 - funds have been poured into the S3, but without the S3 being completed to the border and the same with the D11 on the Czech side, it's not that useful as a road, while stupid sections like the S10 bypass of Wałcz are getting constructed.

S3, bypass of Lubin. It will be completed by June, but unfortunately it can't be opened, because junction Lubin-North belongs to the delayed Salini contract...

A tender was started for the missing section of S1 (E75) expressway in Beskidy mountains, near the border with Slovakia. The section is 8.5 km long and includes two tunnels.
