Yes, I agree, but turning these cameras into average speed cameras would change quite a bit. I'm not myself capable of giving a conclusive answer to whether this is a good idea or not but I feel there are more disadvantages than advantages.

Topi eritasandilise ristmiku ehitushange lõppeb 9. aprillil. Võrreldes eelprojektiga on lahendust natuke muudetud, kuna tegemist on I ehitusjärjekorraga.

Võrdluseks eelprojekt

Esimene ehitusjärk viitab sellele, et seda päris ära ei jäeta, lihtsalt ehitatakse välja hiljem. Praegu ju tegelikult ei vii see ristmik kuhugi, eelprojekti mahus ehitatakse see tõenäoliselt välja siis, kui juuliku-tabasalu on valmis, valmis vähemalt 1+1. Tallinna poolse viadukti all on jäetud ruumi, et eelprojektiga planeeritud lisa mahasõit ära mahuks. Lisan siia originaal joonised ja kui kellelgi huvi võin hanke dokumentide ja tehnilise projekti lingi pm-iga saata.

Translation: The procurement for Topi interchange ends on 9 April. The upper scheme is the one that will be built at first. The bottom one is the pre-project. Since there is currently no road leading to the left (North-West) from that intersection, there would be no practical purpose for building a grade-separated intersection there.

Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications plans 2+1 highways building

First stretch would be on E67 Tallinn-Pärnu between Ääsmäe and Kernu (just after 2+2 ends...)

I've often driven the Via Baltica. In my opinion, all of Tallinn-Pärnu should be at least 2+1. The section between Ääsmäe and Kernu is the right place to start. I hope they do it in a way that allows for easy upgrading to 2x2 later.

I'm not sure about "easy upgrading", because 2x2 needs significantly more space than 2+1. Also, they didn't mention possible collector roads and multi-level junctions.

The overpasses at multi-level junctions could be built to accommodate a future 2x2 road. Also, the right-of-way could be acquired with sufficient width to accommodate a 2x2 road, or at least a block could be placed on development that would interfere with a future upgrade.

A roadbed wide enough for 2+1 with 3.5 meter lanes and one hard shoulder along the right-hand side in each direction could in the future support two 3.75 meter lanes with a wider hard shoulder on both the right and left-hand sides. A new roadbed (hopefully separated by some space) would be needed for the other direction.

I'm skeptical about whether the Riga-Pärnu section of the Via Baltica will ever need more than 2+1. However, I believe that Tallinn-Pärnu and Riga-Warsaw will eventually need to be 2x2 (maybe not Bauska-Pasvalys). Of course, there are higher priorities now, both in Estonia and throughout the Baltics.

Traffic volumes south of Pärnu are very low, even as low as just over 2.000 vehicles near the Latvian border.

Yes, that's why I wrote that I don't think that section will ever need to be 2x2. However, we should keep in mind that internal EU borders still often represent a high barrier to travel insofar as language barriers remain. As more and more Europeans learn English, internal EU borders will decreasingly impede transborder travel.

Due to the increasing number of traffic casualties, the government has decided NOT to raise the speed limits to 100km/h on the better 2-lane highways this year (last year we had 650km of 2-lane highways with a raised speed limit).

Is that move actually based on some good arguments? I.e. are these sections the most problematic / dangerous to raise?

It sounds similar to the rhetoric in the Netherlands that traffic fatalities will increase sharply if the speed limit would be raised from 120 to 130, completely ignoring only 4% of the traffic fatalities actually occur on these specific roads.

A lot of rationale is thrown away when discussions about traffic safety occur.
