The A2 motorway is one of the most important routes not only in Poland, but also in the whole of Europe. It is part of the E30 route from the Irish port of Cork to Omsk in Russia. The Polish section of the motorway is already passable from the border with Germany to the town of Kałuszyn located between Mińsk Mazowiecki and Siedlce. Currently, 101 km of the route east of Kałuszyn is already under construction, and formalities are being prepared for the remaining ones. Here is the GDDKiA report on the current status of works on the A2 motorway.
