Crossable rest areas in Poland

In Poland there are still relatively few motorways (A-roads). In addition to motorways, several expressroads (S-roads) have been developed over the last decade and several more are under construction or planned.

In this overview crossable rest areas in Poland are listed both on A-roads and S-roads. Service stations are called Miejsce obsługi podróżnych in Polish, which is commonly abbreviated to MOP. The MOPs are announced with signs on the A- and S-roads.

On A-roads without pedestrian tunnel or bridge it is (almost) always required to climb a ± 1m80cm high fence if you want to go on foot to a twin service station on the other side of the road.

This overview is rather up to date.
