It seems that Poland has a lot of expressways compared to motorways

S11 Poznań







Different asphalt with more grip on turns - very good idea.

Nice pics, PLH

What sections will soon go U/C? The only one I can think of is the A2 Swiécko-Nowy Tomysl next spring (fingers crossed)

Yes, same as A1 Grudziądz-Toruń will start in Spring. I hope that motorway towards Warsaw will be finished before Euro 2012... and A4 should be finished up to Tarnów as a absolute minimum, hopefully up to Rzeszów

I see. So they will start building the A2 Łódź - Warszawa next spring or sth? And what motorways/expys are supposed to be finished for the Euro 2012 tournament? Just a few more questions about that tournament: will the new stadiums/hotels/infrastructure be finished on time? And for Ukraine? What will happen if Ukraine doesn't make it? Will Poland be the only country to organize the tournament?

Well, Gdańsk will have some sort of North-Eastern bypass with tunnel near Sopot or something like that ?

There are some specialtions about doing it with Germany but I see no space for such option... Poland and Ukraine have too much too lose

You ask very difficult questions

1. Which roads? As for me it would be like that:

A1 from Gdańsk to Toruń and From Łódź to CR border
A2 from D to Warsaw
S3 from Szczecin to A2
A4 from D to Tarnów(?)
A8 Wrocław bypass

plus various sections of S roads

2. Will everything be on time? It depends on what you mean by everything, but stadiums, hotels and stuff like that is likely to be finished.

3. About Ukraine - roads: no way
stadiums: yes, as they are funded by private Ukrinian millionaires

4. You ask who if not Ukraine? It's not taken into account seriously, but there are rumours about Germany.

I always ask difficult questions (when I'm not spamming)

There's definately a need of a good motorway connection between Poland and Ukraine, but I'm not seeing that that will happen. Poland seems to be fine for the tournament. The can organize it together with Germany, but the rivalry is probably too big

Well, we're not really in favour of that, as it would mean Euro 2012 Germany and Poland, and now it is Euro 2012 Poland and Ukraine, if you see my point

Yeah, now Poland is in full spotlights, and together with Germany most attention will, most likely, go to Germany.

You can actually laugh at Germany by approaching Lithuania to organize the tournament with them

It's really hard/impossible to make up last 50 years in 4-5 years in such a big country like Poland. In small countrys like Dk. or Be. it's not that hard to build full road network, but we need like 10x kms more...
