I have no idea what the hell they will be doing there for over next half year, even though they speed up massively now with laying down concrete About 95 % of concrete works are finished

So I would not take this seriously...

I can't believe the opening of A4 Zgorzelec - Krzyzowa has been put forward to July or August 2009 - that is far too long.
If 95% of it is done and most of the overhead gantrys and signage is done than surely it can be opened by the promised deadline of the last day of this month or barring then January 2009?

Who profits from this delay anyway? The company that's building it perhaps?

Why they? There is a penalty for every day of delay.

The only 'profiting' company might be the one device for laying concrete is hired from (ca. € 5000/day)

A2 D - Nowy Tomyśl

The whole truth about german magnificent Autobahns



In this place from 1940 to 1942 a Nazi labor camp was located for 3500 Polish citizens and Polish Jews who were building the highway.

Still I don't understand why Warsawian Express Bypass will Home Army Route and Toruńska Route...

Look at London, Moscow, Berlin, Rome, Budapest, Prague or Ljubljana...

They have proper ring roads (or are planning to have)

Are there any older plans showing other project than current one ? Maybe from PRL time ?

Firstly, you simply can't build an A-10 clone (Berlin) over Warsaw. We have one very large National Park and two or three very large preservation areas in & just at Warsaw's boundaries. Trying to by-pass everything (city + preserved areas) is impossible or makes no sense, as you would have to buit highway 60-70 km from city...

Secondly, according to figures, 90% of traffic in Warsaw Metro area is directly connected to Warsaw (going in, out or within). This mass of steel has to be managed and directed into by-passes in order to enforce reduction of private transport usage (meaning: cars) in the city center.

We are now executing plans drafted in former system. Thank God (feeling the irony?) they've created reserve corridors for these routes.

What sections will soon go U/C? The only one I can think of is the A2 Swiécko-Nowy Tomysl next spring (fingers crossed)
S-7 (15km: 2/2 expresway) from Kielce to Skarzysko should start at the begining of the next year.

red - under construction in the next year
dark blue - existing 2/2 S-7
magneta - existing 2/2 GP road Number 7 from Warsaw to Grojec.

Chris, you need to remember that A-roads in Poland are really looooong distance connections, especially when compared with their equivalents in The Netherlands. Exits in Poland can be as rare as every 50km, and the limitation of 130 is IMHO silly, for many reasons not limited to the fact that there is nobody to impose the speed limit.

I am not sure what the safe cruising speed may be, but I am pretty sure one can drive faster than 130 in Poland. I am not crazy, not a teenager, and I don't have a "muscle car". I live in Germany, and here I normally drive between 140 and 160km/h, because driving slower is actually dangerous for me: I start to de-concentrate, look around etc. I'd like to see the legal situation in Poland to mirror reality.
