Today I had a little trip and here are some pictures:

Starting with A10 (direction Riga-Ventspils):





Turning to A5 (Riga bypass):



Road A9:









Same A9, bridge over Lielupe:





We are still on A9. Some kind of ****** trying to overtake in situation with bad visibility...









Now let's turn right (road P98). Pavement is not good actually but at least horizontal markings are repainted.





Here I will drive right way (road A10):













Here begins stretch of A10 that is in really terrible condition... At least it's not very long.











Entering Riga (same A10):

Well, not that bad after all, considering that recently our roads don't get the needed financing, thus it's good to see that some even regional roads are well-preserved!

Doesn't look that bad, atleast in the first photos. You should've seen the A8 from Jelgava till Eleja, second most catastrophic A-road stretch after A11. I really hope that it will be repaved next year or atleast in 2012 as "LAD" promised.

Why not to share how Latvia looks from inside for those who have never seen that? Though would be great if that video will be accelerated, you know.

"LAD" released a good map of the sections to be repaved using Cohesion funds by 2012:
Red - new highways currently U/C
Orange - 2010
Green - 2011
Blue - 2012

All right! Seem quite promising! Though, a little problem - where on Earth would they get money for all that?! Considering that goverment has reduced financing for LAD, personally, I don't see much of opportunities for them to cover so many stretches..
Still, it's no doubt a pleasure to see that by 2012 we'll get a soft access to both Ventspils and Liepāja as to the West; comfortable way until Lithuanian border on the South; all the route in the direction of Valmiera and a bit further to the North will also be completely repaved. As well, nice to see some improvements would take place on the East, in Latgale.

Khm, Cohesion funds. That's EU money.

If that's all going to be realized, then in 2012 our A-road network will be in perfect condition, except for A11, I hope they will put it into the next programme.

As far as I understand - this years is years when the reconstruction works will start (not end), isn't it?

That's right.

This years two projects (A5, A7) listed above haven't started yet though, the catastrophic Riga dam road.
