Thanks!

2009 traffic volume map has been released. It seems, that the traffic intensity in 2009 has decreased.

Chris, please replace the outdated traffic volume map in your 1st post with this newest one of 2009: http://www.lvceli.lv/LV/Download/?t=1&i=630

Thank Gatis, for providing images of the planned Northern bridge in Riga. The bridge should look approximately like this:

^ Some terrific landmark should it become!! Though, the pillars of access roads spoil the view a bit IMO..

After it get's built, you can try to chop them down.

Hmm, extending A5 would make sense in my opinion. Make it a 3/4th beltway around Rīga.

Wait... are you asking, if the Northern corridor will have a road number? Or, if it will be connected with A5?

I was wondering if it was possible to have A5 assigned to the northern corridor (including that bridge).

Understood. Currently, no road number hasn't been assigned to the Northern corridor, discussions will start, when it will be built. I've read in one article, that it will be included to international E-road network. Which? We'll see.

Riga in street view!




Company "1188" has created it's own version of Google Street View. It's Beta version though, so only few places in Riga are covered with images.

Sweet. Could we get a direct link to that? I tried to enter the website but it looks like it requires you to enter some sms code or something.

I wonder, can't they unite somehow this programme with Google StreetView?

Webcam has been moved! In this picture you can see, that old Slāvu bridge supports are being demolished.

Yep, they are blown down. You see also a sand "pillow" around the old support - so that earth doesn't tremble that much, when it falls.
