Thanks, Jevpls! Finally something from those sides! Looks just ok concerning the roads themselves.

Estonia begins somewhere in the middle of the Part II (where do you see a blue sign with text Eesti - Estonia). Everything after that is from EE.

Why did you post them here? This topic is about Latvian roads only. Pictures of Estonian roads you can post in the Estonian highways thread, otherwise, people like Denis get confused.

My journey picture collection consisted partly of Latvian and partly of Estonian pictures. So i put them together...you can compare road quality in both countries.

^ Exactly this provokes kind of envy.. Sure, it's always nice to have something to compare, but when it's not up to us to change the situation, better stay happy with what we have..
But, ok, soon, much things should change and there would appear real improvements on our roads. Yet, it is too early to judge..

^ Happy to hear and see that! Soon, we'll have one more 2x3 highway stretch of really good quality!

Looking through the older posts about road quality (someway on page 10-20) I remembered my favorite roadsign combination:



Bumpy road for the next 9.5km

Oh you should've seen those "Route dégradée" signs in Southern Belgium back in the late 1990's. Sometimes it was "route dégradée" for 50 km or more. (believe me, those roads were terrible, we were traveling with a caravan back then, and everything fell out of the locked storage closets).

There will be less and less money for roads in coming years (budget cuts cvontinue), EU support will decrease as well (less GDP = less support, change of priorities). Unfortunately our roads will get worse and worse.

^ Well, he's become simply a realist.. But actually it's not that everything is going to be worsened here, maybe only we won't get our first motorway constructed in a few coming years, but the repavement will definately continue, so I see no point in being disappointed so much.

I needed to repair car 3 times during this spring because of deep holes, it made me pessimist too. But now it is better. Rough winter
