Lithuanian signage looks a lot like the Finnish.

I thought that Estonian and Hungarian were very close to Finnish, and that Latvian and Lithuanian were completely different (slavic)

I was referring to the signs and their designs, not the languages.

I think Dan1113 was talking about Finnish signage, and Timon91 was talking about Slavic languages.

Yesterday opened a new section of Tallinn-Tartu road between Vaida and Aruvalla, which is a whopping 6,5km long. It cost 35 million Euros. It now has more than 2km of sound barriers, 2 intersections and a 124m long suspension bridge for pedestrians, which is made of...wood. This expressway will have been extended to Kose by 2011 and to Mäo by 2013.

I think you will be glad, because I read that a work team has been made to set the route for an expressway from Tallinn all the way down to the Latvian border. So there is a plan to make it an expressway, probably not in the near future, but at least it has been taken into discussion.

Unless Tartu and Tallinn become megacities, I don't think that's necessary.

I cracked at this one. Nice road, btw. Any pic of the intersection? Does it contain traffic lights?

I'm afraid we don't understand to each other. I don't expect Tallin and Tartu to become megacities. I asked it because median of that expressway looks pretty wide like if there's reserve for 2x3.

I have my doubts about that crashbarrier. A truck seems to break through it very easily, maybe that's why they added some space in the median. Besides that, Estonia is not really a country where they have to save especially on space usage.

Unfortunately no pics, but there aren't any traffic lights, just a roundabout at one interchange and nothing at the other. Traffic density on roads that cross the expressway is so small that a left turn isn't a problem.

In most parts, this road doesn't have any crashbarriers in the middle at all, just a ~10m strip of grass. I'd prefer crashbarriers, but what can you do. In these pictures there are crashbarriers because of the lamp posts.

My 1000th post, yeay!

Some of my pics of highways (dual carriage ways) in & around Riga.

Road A2 in northern-eastern direction going outwards Riga. Some 2 km farther it crosses with Via Baltica to Tallinn. In this section traffic intensity in last year was 28 605 cars per day.





Road from airport to the city.





Highway (K. Ulmana street) from Riga centre to resort town Jurmala. These are views towards Riga centre. It is the most impressive road in Latvia imo and it's the most weighted as well - 44 382 cars per day in last year.





Walkers bridge over the road:



Closer to Jurmala, in direction to it. "Danger! Fog zone".



Jugla 2-level crossing - important for traffic jam reduction in the city. Construction finished some weeks ago.



Krasta street highway - built in Soviet times. Love those lamps!



Krasta street closer to new Southern bridge (still U/C). Here you see the fly-overs of the bridge.
