Sure it's great to hear that, no doubt, but the question is how soon after there will be chosen most fitable variant, it will be realized..!

Well, I heard same myth also but it's a bit unrealistic IMO, but at least we have some more kms of dual carriageway thanks to such extraordinary planning!

What an ugly name; 'krasta' means a scab in Slovenian.

Looks almost (ok, perhaps 5x smaller ) like those crazy flyovers in Bangkok
Really cool stuff. Love large multilevel junctions.

Is there a scheme of this junction? Would love to see it.

And one question to Latvian road fellows. What are the types of roads in Latvia? In Lithuania there are main roads (magistraliniai keliai), national roads (krasto keliai) and regional roads (rajoniniai keliai). Is it same in Latvia?

As of this years 1st of July, Latvia changed road classification. Main roads (A) remain the same, but 1st (P) and 2nd (V) class roads were reclassified to regional and local roads.
