Very good news - i'm happy for Vilnius.
Just keep those silly Spaniards away , they haven't exactly earned respect among Belgrade's metro enthusiasts (such as myself) by proposing we build a simple LRT system.

How can LRT solve the transport needs for a city of 2 million?

Still I don't understand. Does LRT have smaller tunnel diameter or what, couse full metro can run overground more then LRT for example in HANNOVER

And of course, metro with 3 rd rail looks more powerfull

For some ~10 years they can't make up their mind what kind of transport Vilnius needs, so how many years we'll have to wait for realization? ~100?
Neat... You should make up your mind. Once - i'm a liar, then i'm an overly optimistic drug addict. Perhaps the problem is indeed in you, sir, not me.

Am i happy with the cowardness of our politicians? definitely no! But perhaps you have noticed, that our society is still too dumb to understand some necessary things which require an excessive public spending and hence the inability of our politicians to make a decision that might affect their ratings. It will not last forever as the soviet generations are slowly dying out both in electorate and political circles and situation is changing.

I would as well question the credibility of previously conducted studies - how much was it actually a feasibility study and how much was it just a regular money laundering.

If LRT is the answer for Vilnius, then so be it. Objective people that are specialists in their own field should get more trust from politicians, as well as general public.

I think Dompcz is unfortunately right. We should not presume that Vilnius is getting a metro or even any kind of LRT (tram) anytime in the near future (10-15 years). One thing that we could develop further is the roads and bus transport. Even here, however, Vilnius isn't doing that good.

I really want to hope I'm wrong and that things will start to change for better...

And no-one implied that we might be getting it sooner

As for the roads - southern by-pass has been opened for some months now and the construction of western by-pass is well underway. Moletai highway is being reconstructed and a number of most troubling intersections have been fixed. It is brave to say that Vilnius isn't doing good in this case.
However, there is always some room for improvement, obviously.

This might be an interesting video for some of you - its the system that was proposed to Belgrade by a Spanish firm, INECO.

Its quite long (9 minutes) and in Serbian so you won't understand much but you will definately know more about what to expect ...

It's strange, that nobody mentioned, that the construction of outer Vilnius southern bypass has started, there will be 3 phases in total, however construction of phase 1, has only started on 8th of February, which will include a reconstruction of Kirtimu street (1+1) into 2+2 and one new 2 level interchange with Lentvario street.

The remaining 2 phases will have a newly built 1+1 road

It would be great, if someone from www.miestai.net/forumas could upload some pictures with the map, if possible?

I am interested in Lithuanian train system and Vilnius/Kaunas city transport. Is there a separate thread for public transportation or is it not discussed that much?

And - it's obvious for one reason that this is Lithuanian forum. Can anyone guess why?

There's a lot of information about it in miestai.net forum, although it's all in Lithuanian... But I think you could ask anything and all of the Lithuanians would be more than willing to answer.

Vilnius will completely overhaul its street lights system. Lamps (all changed to LED), lamp posts, wiring, control systems, sensors - everything. The project will take 4 years. Once completed it will cut street lighting energy consumption by half.

This is very good. One thing that didn't look good in Vilnius was old and rusting lamp posts which were begging to be changed.

Really good decision, other countries are too greedy to do it.

I think this is happening in all EU countries. Same going on here in Helsinki, and it's due the EU directive of getting rid off old fashioned mercury-vapor lamps, low-pressure sodium-vapor lamps and such and replace them with more energy effective and less light polluting LEDs, metal-halide lamps and high-pressure sodium vapor lamps.

All old equipment should be changed throughout European Union by 2016.

Anyone have any diagrams on how these new LED lights look compared to the old, and possibly the area it irradiates?
