Of roadworks and detours

Like much of Warsaw these days, ul. Pulawska, the main artery running south from Warsaw, seems to be suffering from perpetual roadworks. Its being widened from four lanes to six. Various diversions have been in place since May. Getting to the local hypermarket means an interesting detour through what used to be a massive collective farm growing tomatoes in greenhouses. This is now derelict and awaits development into a huge housing estate. Once built, ul. Pulawska will have to bear the extra traffic that would come from several hundred new houses and flats. Will three lanes in each direction be enough?
