A new section for drivers will improve comfort and travel time between Piotrków and Częstochowa.

On Tuesday, October 12, road workers from the General Directorate of National Roads and Highways provided drivers with another piece The A1 motorway. It is a 24 km section between Piotrków Trybunalski and Kamieńsk, where until now there was only one lane in each direction. Thus, for the entire route between Tuszyn and Częstochowa, drivers will have two lanes at their disposal in each direction.
As hard as it may be to believe, in two days – October 14 – the Pomeranian section of the A1 motorway will celebrate its 10th birthday. In the fall of 2011, 62 km of the lost section between Gdask and Toro was commissioned (the total length of the Pomeranian section of the highway operated by the Gdask Transport Corporation is 152 km).
Over the next decade, extensive and still ongoing work was carried out on the remaining sections of the road connecting Tri-City to the Czech border. The next stage of unblocking the section under construction takes place between Piotrków Trybunalski and Częstochowa, which drivers have already used, but only one lane in each direction. In addition, it has a maximum speed of 70 km / h and its cross-sectional measurement.
From now on, drivers will travel along the 24 km section of the A1 motorway between Piotrków Trybunalski and Kamieńsk on two lanes in each direction.

– In connection with the completion of the next stage of works on the section of the A1 motorway under construction between Piotrków Trybunalski and Kamieńsk, from next Tuesday, October 12, a new 2+2 traffic organization will be introduced. The capacity in this section will certainly improve, and so will the driving comfort. Another novelty for drivers of the 24-kilometer section between Piotrków Trybunalski and Kamieńsk is the complete launch of the Kamieńsk intersection, the connection of the A1 with district road number 484. This means that the last “bottleneck” will disappear on the road, which will undoubtedly improve smooth driving – it is reported GDDKiA.
Famous construction by measuring sectional velocity
The above-mentioned section of the highway under construction (between Tussen and Petrokhov Trip.) became popular a few months ago, when the Main Inspection of Road Transport, in order to ensure the safety of construction workers, installed a sectional speedometer there. The problem is that on the road, which in places no longer looks like a construction site, but a highway, drivers significantly exceed the maximum permissible speed 70 km / h. We didn’t have to wait long for the effects. On average, cameras were recorded there during the month 28 thousand Speeding drivers.
This year, some other changes
This is not the end of the changes that will improve the comfort of driving along the A1 motorway under construction. Next week, 6 km of a new western road will be made available from the county boundary to the south on the part extending from the county boundary Śląskie and ódzkie to the Częstochowa North junction. This means that drivers heading towards Katowice will have three lanes at their disposal, the target portion of the new lane. Those traveling in the opposite direction will still have two lanes.
In turn, in a few weeks it is planned to definitively complete the work on the section from Radomsko to the district border. The Śląskie and ódzkie regions and the 7-kilometer stretch of the road will become a fully developed highway, where it will be possible to move on three lanes in each direction at a speed of up to 140 km / h.
This year, drivers also expect two major changes on sections of the A1 motorway in the Lodz province: Tosin – Piotrkow Trybunalski-Podny and Kamisek – Radomsko. Both lanes will be available on both roads in full cross-section, which means drivers will have two three-lane roads at their disposal.
