Expressway S6 or express road S6 (in Polish droga ekspresowa S6) is a major road in Poland which has been planned to run from the A6 autostrada at Goleniów in West Pomerania to Gdańsk parallel to the Baltic coast, forming the main connection between Gdańsk and Szczecin.
At present, the only significant section of S6 that has been built is the Obwodnica Trójmiejska (Tricity Bypass) from Gdańsk to Gdynia which is 38.6 km (24.0 mi) long. Also a part of S6 is 16.3 km (10.1 mi) bypass of Słupsk that was completed in October, 2010. The bypass of Nowogard, was completed in December, 2011
In July, 2010 the route between Goleniów and Słupsk was finalized - it will be about 180 km (110 mi) long, and pass just south of Kołobrzeg and then north of Koszalin. The road will be dual carriageway, with 27 interchanges and 130 viaducts, with about 20% of it overlapping the current route of National Road 6 (DK6). Construction is not expected to start before 2020. The exact route of S6 between Słupsk and Gdańsk has not yet been determined.
After World War I the German HaFraBa association had already set up plans to build an Autobahn along the route from Berlin through the Polish Corridor to the Free City of Danzig and East Prussia (today informally known as Berlinka). The construction was pushed by the Nazi authorities after 1933, however the road was never completed.
