If entrance and exit are in the same lane (a double lane) it is usual to have to drive in the left because the system to open.

Nevertheless, the most usual situation is two independent gates for enter and exit the garage... or just one and somewhere to cross inside if two cars want to enter/exit at the same time.

Riga, Latvia. The Southern Bridge in the distance gives it away.

Just one harmless question to all the people that are guessing the highways from certain pictures, are you using some kind of recognition software, cause sometimes there are no hints in the pictures posted?Thanks
And to take a wild guess regarding the location of the picture I would say is somewhere in the Baltic countries.

Looking around on the map of Latvia, I saw three interesting things I like to know more about:

1. a road south of Daugavpils, unfinished, between A14 and P68. Why hasn't it been completed ?

2. an unfinished 'road to nowhere' southeast of A6-P37 roundabout.

3. P80 north of A6 is much better aligned than A6. Will P80 once be the new A6 ?

@RipleyLV: can you tell more about those roads ?

That was Daugavpils Southern bypass road project, which got abandoned in the 80's cause of insuficient funding. As seen on the satelite images, the road goes even further P68 in direction to Daugava river as there was supposed to be a new bridge and later connection with the town center.

P80 was also project from the 80's, a new super highway from Riga to Jēkabpils in a more straight way bypassing all populated places. Also got abandoned because of funding, but some parts are in operation nowadays, for example, A6 Pļaviņas bypass and a segment of P80 before construction works started there. Right now we are doing reconstruction of the entire P80 and building a new road further to Koknese, but, there's but, works on this new part are on hold because the contract got terminated, a new tender will be announced in the nearest time and there are land problems. Therefor, it's estimated that P80 will be opened in late 2014. I was there 2 weeks ago, you can view my photo report from that stretch: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...773708&page=67

After opening, P80 will become the new A6. All junctions will be grade-separated. You can view planning here: http://www.lvceli.lv/LV/Download/?t=pagefile&i=375

Of course, there are plans of continuing this road further to Jēkabpils, but due to funding again, it's impossible right now to realize something. Here's a scheme of Koknese-Pļaviņas stretch: http://www.lvceli.lv/lv/Files/Public...e_Plavinas.pdf & Pļaviņas-Jēkabpils: http://www.lvceli.lv/lv/Files/Public..._pielikums.pdf

Whoosh! Back to guess.

That was a NO. A8 is completely different in terms of quality.

I guess it's a not very important P-road in the south of Latvia.
However I still haven't found it on GMaps.

@RipleyLV: thanks for the info on A6-P80 and A14.
