1) it goes to A6 as well;
2) it connects to A12 somewhere around Zīlāni, not Kūkas - not that far from Jēkabpils.

But basically it shows the idea.

That's only the idea, since none of proposals for this segment have been approved officially. This project is quite for some time now, hopefully our first 1st PPP project would be successful, I see that as the only opportunity to build new roads here.

Technically our first road PPP project was A2, which didn't exactly end like we hoped for.

That project could be next after Ķekava bypass, practically all of the paper works for it are ready, they just need to find a company that would get it done, just like those 5 or smth years ago.

WTF?
Half of that section reconstruction was done previous year and the remaining half has to be done this or next year... everything co-financed by CF. What do you think PPP scheme could do there?

I've heard that the next planned project could be Riga bypass A4 (widening to 2 carriageways).

Anyway I don't like PPP - it's a very expensive loan and I don't see why a simple loan isn't better.

That money was used for surface improvement. Idea of a PPP project is to create the segment from A4 to A3 into a grade separated road, in other words, an expressway with a 110 km/h speed limit. Pedestrian tunnels, noise barriers, ecoducts, separated bus stops, etc., are also included.

Maybe.. but most of the paper work has been completed for these motorway projects, it's only the matter of finding the right resources to realize them.

What does "full reconstruction" mean on A10? Will those stretches be completely closed during reconstruction?

Full reconstruction means that they repair the base of the road, not only replace the surface. The road won't be shut, but you might have to drive on the gravel base during repairs:

A9 Liepāja-Grobiņa. It is becoming nicer and nicer to drive in Latvia
Btw, a pic from "my" town in Latvia

In Polish it's "grób". However, my nickname doesn't come from that at all but from Batman and Robin

Update - 10/9/2016

1. Works start immediately after the dam.


2. Looks very wide. Personally I have no clue how the road will look once works are finished.


3. Perhaps the layout could be similiar with the one before the dam.., 2 lanes and a emergency stopping lane.


4.


5. Works end at the roundabout.
