Polish motorways are nice. I heard that A4 is repaired too (i was on that road when it was damaged (2004). Kryzyzowa - Wroclaw).

But, i have a few questions;

Is there any certainty about the A2 through Warszawa, and east of Warszawa to Brest?
Will there be an A6 from Szczecin to Gdansk or Kaliningrad?

And why for the love of god do they sign tiny places 600 kilometers away near borders? :nuts: :bash:

i mean this:



But after all, Polish Autostrada's are very good. I hope it will improve the national economy.

Nice motorway. I was in Poland 3 years ago. Driving back along the A2 was a survival trip. We saw 4 big car accidents, we had huge thunderstorms and hail, the quality of the road and the drivers at times was bad, but it seems to be a lot better now. Is the last piece of raod to the German border still one lane?

Thanks :). Reperation of A4 Krzywa-Wroclaw was finished.

2010/11,

and east of Warszawa to Brest?
2013/14.

Will there be an A6 from Szczecin to Gdansk or Kaliningrad?
there will be S6, but when?... after 2013... :eek:hno:
S it's "almost" motorway: for example lane is narrower (3,5 meters; A-3,75 m., etc.)

But after all, Polish Autostrada's are very good. I hope it will improve the national economy.
I hope so :), but when? ...

Poland is just not as densely populated than the west european countries.
Population density of some european countries:

Germany 233
Liechtenstein 205
Italy 192
Switzerland 177
Luxembourg 173
Andorra 146
Moldova 131
Czech Republic 130
Denmark 125
Poland 124
Albania 123
Armenia 112
Slovakia 111
Serbia 110
France 109
Portugal 109
Hungary 108
Austria 97
Slovenia 95
Romania 94
Azerbaijan 90
Turkey 86
Cyprus 83
Republic of Macedonia 81
Greece 81
Ukraine 80
Spain 79

So, Poland is quite densely populated..

Environmentalists Protest Highway Plans Across Polish Peat Bog

Environmentalists protest plans for highway across rare peat bog in Poland
18 February 2007

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Hundreds of environmentalists on Sunday protested the planned construction of a highway that would cross one of Europe's rare peat bogs.

Polish authorities have approved plans to construct a section of the Via Baltica highway, linking Poland to Finland, that would cross a protected peat bog area off the Rospuda River in the northeast of the country.

The decision, approved Feb. 9, violates a European program that protects rare ecological environments. The European Union's executive office has demanded an explanation from Warsaw and threatened sanctions if the project goes ahead.

The government recently replied to the European Commission, saying that delaying the construction would threaten Polish plans to build a badly needed network of highways.

Holding banners that read "The Government or Nature -- The Choice is Yours," and "Hands off Rospuda," some 100 protesters gathered near one of the presidential residences, the Belvedere, in downtown Warsaw. They also gathered signatures for a protest letter to the government arguing the highway should bypass Rospuda.

Similar protests were held in Szczecin and Gdansk, on the Baltic coast, and in the southern city of Krakow.

The environmentalists argue that the presence of heavy construction equipment and the planting of support pillars will destroy dozens of rare plants and animals found only in the bog.

On Sunday, Environment Minister Jan Szyszko was to meet opponents and supporters of the highway gathered in the Rospuda Valley, where Greenpeace activists have been camping for a week in protest of the planned construction, which is to start in the coming weeks.
