It looks like a brand new one, and it's not strange to see just one separate bridge before anyhting else appears when the construction of a highway is taking place, it's usually the first structure to be built before anything else.
Also, just wanted to add that goverment is preparing to redeem the properties that are located on the way of the rest parts of E22.

Just adding a small update.

Tur, kur P80 šķērso P32 (asfalts, ko var saskatīt tā dziļāk paskatoties ir P32, cik skatos viņu arī pārasfaltē).
Sorry, didnt know how to tell that in English.

Skaidrs. Paldies!

They are building a 2-level junction there.

Oh, wow, a two-level junction on a regional road, something rather incredible for our scales!

Together there will be built 10 new 2-level junctions, 3 of them are currently U/C. Construction of the next E22 stage from P32 closer to Tīnūži will start soon.

You have many major intersections U/C at the moment but how many km of regional roads are repaved this year, for example? It would be interesting to get that kind of data too .

Another photo tour,
A6 from Skrīveri to Daugavpils.
[IMG]http://i37.************/14wc2ua.png[/IMG]
1. Just after Skrīveri,
[IMG]http://i35.************/6onzax.jpg[/IMG]
2. Aizkraukle bypass (kind of)
[IMG]http://i33.************/1z5qaer.jpg[/IMG]
3.There is a road leading to Aizkraukle, some 300m further, also he road goes 2x2 for about a half a kilometer.
[IMG]http://i37.************/6f1kww.jpg[/IMG]
4. Somewhere near Koknese.
[IMG]http://i34.************/2ztlrep.jpg[/IMG]
5. Pļaviņas bypass. The road goes 2x2 a bit later, but again for not more than a kilometer.
[IMG]http://i35.************/9rk19y.jpg[/IMG]
6. Still on Pļaviņas bypass.
[IMG]http://i33.************/t0m52c.jpg[/IMG]
7. There is a roundabout in distance connecting A6 with P37 and some local road. Speed limit here changes from 90 to 50 km/h.
[IMG]http://i33.************/2rwl4z4.jpg[/IMG]
8. Closer, we will be turning to the right.
[IMG]http://i37.************/fxgdp2.jpg[/IMG]
9. Still on Pļaviņas bypass.
[IMG]http://i37.************/fa1kkl.jpg[/IMG]
10. Now we are getitng closer to Jēkabils. The road here is very twisty. Very hard to overtake someone, even tough the road was almost empty, in 9am when i was driving there.
[IMG]http://i33.************/z9ttl.jpg[/IMG]
11. Somewhere between Jēkabpils and Līvani, if i remember correctly.
[IMG]http://i38.************/308gx0w.jpg[/IMG]
12. Outskirts of Līvani. The city realy needs a bypass.
[IMG]http://i37.************/34i1ksk.jpg[/IMG]
13. Between Līvani and Daugavpils.
[IMG]http://i34.************/5of1a9.jpg[/IMG]
14. The same.
[IMG]http://i33.************/2rzz1ph.jpg[/IMG]
15. Nīcgale. The road here goes 2x2 for about 30 kilometers, till Daugavpils.
[IMG]http://i34.************/rw31au.jpg[/IMG]
[IMG]http://i38.************/30nekib.jpg[/IMG]

After going through this road in full lenght, for the first time of my life, i have to say it really needs to be widened to 2x2. I was driving there in an early morning (from 8am to 10am) and almost all traffic consisted of trucks, which are realy hard to overttake on 1x1 roads, especialy when there are other truck coming from the other direction almost all the time. I guess its even worse in eavning when alot of people drive from work to home. Unfortunetly i havent heard anyhting about a plan to widen it, exepct the Tīnuži-Koknese part, which i remember correctly should be built from 2017-2021 (?)

Well, I agree about that, all the Riga-Daugavpils route should be turned into a 2x2 high-standard expressway, after all two major Latvian cities must have very good connection! Btw, thanks for the pics, this haven't been shown before, so highly appreciated due to the reality revealed.

30 kilometers of the new Tīnuži-Koknese highway are U/C now and it will be completed in 2012. Extra 2 lanes will be added in 2017-2021 time period. When this highway will be opened, you won't see the most of heavy transport on A6 from Salaspils untill Koknese.

Terrific progress there so far! So as the first stage of this whole project the road will be just 2x1 and only after few years it is going to be widened to 2x2, is that correct?
