Planning the drive on A3. Can anyone please advise how long the delay due to construction could be? I'm driving from North-East Estonia to Riga and wonder if I should consider going via Parnu instead if the delays are long. Thanks!

You should be able to cross that segment in ~40 min.

Last week there were no noticable delays, only about two stops, where you had to wait about 3minutes in each.

Stationary speed cameras in Latvia have already recorded 2,846 speed violations in first week

Quote:
The 23 stationary speed cameras which started operating in Riga and outside the city last week have already recorded 2,846 speeding violations, LETA was informed by State Police spokeswoman Lita Juberte.
The Baltic Course

Does anybody know/have positions list/map of these cameras?

Click on "Fotoradaru karte". But most of the marks are put in places where movable speed cameras are used, including the stationary ones too. I have seen stationary cameras on Dienvidu, Salu and Vanšu bridges, Brīvibas street and on P89.
BTW when are you going to upload your video of A8?

Thanx for link. As I understand, there are mobile cams only on the map. POI Plaza doesn't have stationary cameras yet.
A8 will be after my returning home from vacation not early than in the last part of June. Please be patient

Well some of the marked dots are stationary cameras, but you cant tell which are mobile ones, and which are stationary.

At 6:25 I saw a horse and wagon. Was there a wedding going on or do people actually use these as a way of transportation? I know that in Romania people do, so I was just wondering.

No offence

It was a wedding, later i even took a picture of the couple later that day. But deep in the countryside you can still find people travelling with horses, but that would still be very, very rare.

I've driven about 40 RTs between Vilnius and Riga, about 5 RTs between Riga and Tallinn, and some other random driving around Latvia, all since 2000. I don't recall ever seeing one of these in Estonia or Latvia, though I've seen a few in Lithuania and quite a few in Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine.

As i said, you could spot them somewhere deep in the countryside, most probably somewhere in Latgale, but still it is very rare. I myself, living in Latvia and travelling around it alot, have seen only few of them.

Reconstruction of Vienība alley.




A8 reconstruction.

Traffic is currently only in one lane in each direction.


Nearing Olaine, still 1+1


Just before Olaine, each direction gets it's own carriageway, but works continue on both sides now.



This continues after Jaunolaine too.


Nearing Dalbe, here is the new pavement laid last year, but finishing works are still going on there.


Last remains of the old pavement.


And here


Bonus: Sheeps
