Thought I'd post since I did not find any discussion on this recently.
So, in coming days Polish government is expected to decide on the construction of a new 50M international airport in an undecided location somewhere in central Poland.

While WAW certainly has serious limitations, it will never be beaten on the convenience side. On the other hand WMI is already planning a big expansion. So even considering LO's dynamic expansion plans for the future, is such a clean-sheet huge investment totally justified? Let's share thoughts.

A little, but not much. However Warsaw does have a secondary airport, Modlin, with plenty of room for expansion. Problem is that Modlin lies further away from the city, so it's less attractive for legacy airlines. Currently only Ryanair uses Modlin.
Warsaw is not exactly in the middle of Poland, it's east of it. The proposed airport is right in the middle of the country, west of Warsaw, in an almost unpopulated area. That means it has the disadvantages of Modlin times three. The airport can have all the capacity it can possibly want, but nobody will use it.
