I assume you never have been to a country more to the east than Germany, right? All those central/eastern European countries have huge billboards.

When I was lost in Slovakia (due to bad signage...) I found the way back to my holiday home by following the Tesco billboards

True. I personally hate billboards, cause IMO they're just a bunch of visual crap. But the biggest billboards I've seen by a highway were near Malaga, Spain.

Some pics from Riga - Estonian border road:

Saulkrasti bypass (if you're going by A1 road):







Sigulda bypass (if you're going by A2 road):





You may also have a look on the list of national roads in Latvia:

Are there some pictures?

Well, at least the section by polish border doesn't have much to do with real motorway.






Eastern bypass of Kaunas:











That's how the road to polish border looks like:

New photos of Southern bridge and Maskavas/Krasta fly-over. The bridge will be opened in 18. November.

That's a great bridge, smart decision they made it 6-laned. Just the orange color doesn't look so nice to me, maybe red would be nicer?

It's a good thing they've kept a future rise of traffic intensities in their minds. It's relatively easy to add a lane to a road compared to adding a lane to a bridge. And red would be better indeed, isn't that the national color of Latvia?

Yeah, approximately 1 billion USD was that worth to think about traffic intensities (sure it's not the sum of the bridge itself, but including some various 3-level crossings and new motorways) Yes, red is the national color of Latvia, though it's dark red (claret), but due to the bridge is called "Southern", orange color is warmer!
