The idea about Terehova border crossing point is to build a new road from Ludza to border and to leave existing A12 as a local road. The new one will use existing local road Ludza - Nirza - Ploski and it will be reconstructed.
Some parts have already been reconstructed (if I'm not wrong then probably Nirza - Ploski and from Ploski to border) and other will be done this or next year (or something like that).

To makaveli6.
I had possibility to take some pics of a little part of A6 road (near Daugavpils, 4 driving lanes). I hope they will be useful:

















[now you won't see another 2 driving lanes because they are behind the trees]







The end - here begins usual 2 lane road.

Hey, i`m the newbie here, so, time before i was just watching posts in Baltic states topic`s and now i decided to put some pics with some highways here in Latvia.

So the first one:

RIGA-JURMALA
Duration- 20minutes;
Distance- 20km;
Lanes- 3+3;
Intensity-33 000 per day;
Other info- Most densed highway in Latvia and i think in Baltics too. One and only 6 laned highway in Latvia, and i guess in Baltics too. But as i drove my car about at 8o clock in a evening, car intensity was quite small.

Just some km`s out of Riga. First junction.










INBOX.LV ice hall









You must pay 1LVL to enter resort city Jurmala. (it`s about 1.5euros)


Just after the bridge of Lielupe there is one of the biggest worlds aquaparks called Līvu Akvaparks (I guess it was 3rd largest in world, 1st one was in Canada, 2nd one in Swirzerland, but maybe now those positions are changed)



So that`s all for this highway, maybe some time I will take pics of the oposite side.

p.s makavelli, it`s unnecessary, as i`m from jelgava, and every day I use JELGAVA-RIGA highway today I toke some pics of RIGA-JELGAVA, maybe you can put some pic`s of JELGAVA-RIGA? If not, in nearest days i will show you JELGAVA-RIGA highway.

Hi Rudolph! And a warm welcome to the forum! Thanks for these pics, if you'll happen to drive somewhere else, please, share that with us!

Also, thanks Jevpls for showing how Daugavpils highway looks - not bad, who could think the old pavement can keep such good conditions?!

makaveli6, you could do that, why not, but don't flood too much, as we had already pics from this highway by RipleyLV..!

Why are you even asking? That isn't grandmas' forum about knitting... it's about roads. Of course we're interested!

It isn't that good actually:

1) You saw only a little part of this road (approximately from A14 to Līksna);
2)You saw the right side of the road. The left one is in worse condition (it's going to be reconstructed on 2012).

But if the little holes are filled then it's not so bad at all.

Approximately from km 212 to km 224. The beginning of 2x2 is in quite good condition. As far as I know, LVC is not going to make total reconstruction of all 2x2 A6.

What do you mean by expanding it? Do you think that we need 2x2 road till Daugavpils? There is no need for that. Actually AADT is so low that it would be smart solution to close one side of road and leave other (making 2 lane road). There is no point to spend lots of money for maintenance for such empty road.

You mean the Northern bridge? Don't know if the current crisis has to do something with it, this project had a green light already in 1976, but something got messed up with the finances, as usual, and untill now it hasn't been realized. I remember in a newspaper (2002?) there was written that the works on the design were on going and the construction could start in 2010. But the recent articles say, works on this bypass won't start untill 2013, as Jelgava town has other top priorities now (train-bus terminal construction, water quality improvements, etc).

I also posted news about the Southern bypass plan in Jelgava projects thread.

Actualy we have alot of forumers from Jelgava, almost more than Riga.

As soon as whole Jelgava bypass will be finished this would significantly decrese the air pollution and also flow of traffic through Jelgava, which on the other hand could bring some loses fot the town as the town itslef will be less visited..
But anyway, this should not be a rock on which we split so that not to construct this absolutely necessary highway, what might some politicians think of..!

RIGA-JELGAVA
Duration- 35minutes
Distance- 40km;
Lanes- 2+2 and emergency lane;
Intensity-16 000 per day;
Other info- Busy road, also known as 1.A. coridor to Lithuanian border. This highway was build in 1996 or smth i guess, so, one of the first big projects by independent Latvia.
i was driving about on 2 o clock, when traffic intensity isn`t very high. About 7 o clock in evening traffic on this road becomes crazy.
Just about 5km`s out of Riga.








turn to resort city Jurmala.







don`t know how this grain was called in english, but from this grain is possible to get out te bio-diesel.



some billboards





pedestrian bridge in town of Jaunolaine



houses in town Jaunolaine





traffic light in Jaunolaine



U turn in Jaunolaine





after 1km there is another traffic light, crossing with the road, wich goes to city of Olaine.



after 7km there is one more pedestrian bridge





road here splits to 2x1



house near the road



one more traffic light. Straight- to Jelgava ringroad and Lithuania border.



I`m getting to right- straight to Jelgava through Ozolnieki.



Btw all the way paralel of the highway there is built railway also. Here railway with road is crossing.



Bimmer done me



Nice apartments near river of Iecava



here it is nice lake in Ozolnieki. On this lake there is built one and only cabel wakeboard track in Baltics.
