The S7 Poland a toll way - Krakow to Warsaw

According to that the S7 Krakow to Warsaw is never going to be built and neither is a single motorway going from north to south of the country.

Another 100billion needed.

Not really. Anybody who bought before 2007 is still quids in and in a major way. And based on what a flat in my building is currently on the market for (and what I know for a fact the owner will accept as a sale price), my place has still tripled in value since I bought it in 2000.

Not relevant for me or for anyone who bought after 2007.

I agree with the gist of what you are saying, but take inflation into account and the fact that a 50% fall=100% rise and with can become less rosy quite quickly. Prices are a feedback mechanism - falling prices makes prices fall.

1 That shows motorways not local roads
2 Call me cynical but I'm not convinced that in one year they will build the same amount of motorways as they managed in the last 10. If you ever worked with Poles you will know deadlines are not a strongpoint.

Anyway, this thread is about property prices which are falling.

The A1 will be completed sooner rather than later - there's your North/South motorway.

The S7 isn't desperately needed - there's already a link via the DK8/DK1/A4.

The only big problem I can think of right now is the lack of decent connection between Poznan and Wroclaw. Even the A4 to Korczowa will be finished sooner rather than later, though I have my doubts about the A2 from Warsaw to Terespol.

I think that's because the existing road is good enough - as far as I can tell, they're only using "motorway" to mean "toll road" - expressways are every bit as good as many European motorways.

I don't think a two lane road (the s7 north of Krakow) is in anyway like a motorway in any European country. Expressways/motorways have 120km/hr speed limit, not 60/40km as it is now. There is also no traffic lights or pedestrian crossings on motorways.

The road north from Krakow is not good enough. In fact, the fastest way to the north of Poland is via Germany. That is ridiculous, but true.

No charges on expressways. However S7 in not really a true expressway anyway, as it is still under construction.
