Thanks for the updates, it is always a great feeling to see some real progress being done in our country, especially when it is connected with road infrastructure!

Mateusz, of course there is one: A2 from Riga till restaurant Sēnīte (Sigulda outskirts, where A2 has junctions with A3, E77 and P10). This road atm is a dual-carriageway but after 132 mio Lats (~189 mio Euros) investitions, this 24 km long highway will become a first motroway in Latvia!!

I think the pictures won't be available, because the works are likely to be initiated in the year 2010.

But there you can find project:

It won't be a motorway, but a expressway with a 110 km/h speed limit.

Big construction will have place in Daugavpils - a new fly-over with adjacent roads:

The project foresees the construction of the tunnel under the tracks of Riga-Daugavpils railway, building a new street from Vidzemes till Višķu str, repairing Piekrastes str from Vidzemes till Arendoles str, constructing a bridge over the new street, building two traffic circles at the intersection of Višķu and Kaunas, as well as Višķu and Vidzemes str, putting new eight kms of railway track, which will be used for rail transport during all this construction.
Project implementation will relief Daugavpils railway crossing and will provide more convenient traffic between the city districts.
Its total cost is 24 172 708 LVL.
This massive construction is to be realized by Septemeber 2011.
