Judging by the picture of that roundabout, it surely seems like the flyover was really needed in that area.

Looks stunning too. In an ideal world, all roundabouts would be replaced by such structures Thanks for the pictures.

Well, I suppose at least in two years time, though our vice-mayor, Shlesers, you must have heard about him, claimed that the construction could start in even a year time! Let's hope that it would at least gets built, regarding our economic problems, it's more than difficult to start such grandiose project!

If we are lucky - start in 2012, end in 2018 - for whole Northern Corridor. On picture you see one fourth of it.

Reporting from largest construction field in Latvia - Southern highway 2nd stage.
Pics from 03.11.2009.

View from my window. They promised to open traffic on the first estacade already in November. Then they will start demolishing of old air bridge over railway (that's some 200 m to right from this picture's right edge).





Opposite end - connection with Lubānas street

Magnificent video! Can't wait to see them all built! Just really hope the government won't cut down on their financing.

^ As you see, only one 2-laned overpass is opened, second (in reverse direction) is still being built!
