We suggest two explicit descriptions of the Poisson q-W algebras which are Poisson algebras of regular functions on certain algebraic group analogues of the Slodowy transversal slices to adjoint orbits in a complex semisimple Lie algebra g. To obtain the first description we introduce certain projection operators which are analogous to the quasi–classical versions of the so–called Zhelobenko and extremal projection operators. As a byproduct we obtain some new formulas for natural coordinates on Bruhat cells in algebraic groups.
