Really wide exit lanes!

Timon91: The Stockholm area's shoulders have mostly been converted into exit lanes now, we pretty much have no shoulders left (on the E4)!

My last trip to Riga couldn't have been completed without a photoreport on Riga's A2 southern bridge (Dienvidu tilts)



Southern Bridge straight ahead




Underneath the interchange



Lido restaurant ("The Windmill" )










A very elevated ramp towards the centre via Krasta Street




View of the interchange from the bridge




Southern Bridge itself (very strict speed limit for a 3x3 IMO). I don't know about weekdays, but on sunday afternoon there was hardly any traffic.

Reminds me of Siekierkowska route in Warsaw, but the overpasses there aren't grey as these in Riga.

Very impressive shots. Hopefully, I'll be to Riga next summer. I'll have a note about this place.

Nice bridge! And interestingly shaped lamps.

Don't you think though that it would be better here to sign Panevėys (Panevēa) instead of Kaunas (Kauņa)? I mean, you can also go to Vilnius from Panevėys, which is after all the capital and biggest city of a neighboring country, although in a less important direction, but still. It reminds me of Rīga being Graz, Panevėys being Maribor, Kaunas being Ljubljana and Vilnius being Zagreb. But in Graz, only Maribor is signed.

Definately agree with you, Verso! But you won't make the government understand it, they put directions only of the biggest cities... Though in Latvia you won't find the names of the capitals of the neighbouring countries on the signs, you have to know the name of the towns you are going through to there, cause they write names only of the nearest to the boarder towns/cities.

In Estonia, speed limit of 90 km/h out of settlements must be adhered by all kinds of transport?

Yes. But we do have roads with a speed limit of 100km/h and 110km/h. In that case, only cars and motorcycles are allowed to go that fast.

Question;

Do you guys think this thread should split off into three different threads, one for each nation?

Yes, I think so. Though there is not much posting over here, it would better to give every single nation it's own thread
