Because on this road there are still minor construction works, like for exampl.: assambling noise pannels.

Cause the road is not finished yet - it's one of those speed limits that you don't pay attention to when nobody is working

You see those low speed limits everywhere. I passed by a sign that said "50" while there was absolutely nothing what looks like roadworks.

These steel arch viaducts are very nice. I quite often travel to Wroclaw, so I have chance to see how they grow.

Only 3 days until the Stryków bypass opens . The residents of the town will be overjoyed at not having heavy traffic roaring through their town as they come off the motorway to continue to Warsaw on national road 14 and E30 Any news on which company has got the tender to build the A2 from Stryków to Warsaw and which month in 2009 they will start construction?

I personally don't know when they will start.

Is that part and the Swiecko - Nowy Tomysl section the last sections of non-motorway between Warsaw and Berlin?

Actually, Poland is the only gap of 4-lane roads between Amsterdam and Moscow.

Right, Bad Oeynhausen also has 4 lanes. But BO is another small problem

Why would anyone write it's own country code on the motorway sign?

If two country-codes are together - it means border crossing. Here: border crossing in Jędrzychowice (this small village is in Poland, you know...).

I know, with Schengen it's stupid - but that's the way it is here in Poland.

At least they could put Drezno/Dresden instead of 'well known' town called Jędrzychowice...

And of course, the crossing had to be near a town which is so easy to pronounce by foreigners...
