Thanks for the map of the future highways, quite much is correctly chosen and well-thought. I only think that proposed section from Sēnīte till Valmiera directly is not the best solution to make motorway, there's a need to make it through Cēsis, thus extending A2 till the interchange with P20 and make a more important motorway than the one you propose.

Ripley got it almost perfect, I'd only extend it to Cesis and Daugavpils. And make them all at least 120 km/h so you could reach Riga from any major city in 2 hours or less



Let's start working on it!

Lembergs: Latvijā par ES naudu jābūvē ātrgaitas šosejas

Lai stimulētu tautsaimniecības attīstību, Latvijā būtu nepieciešams izbūvēt ātrgaitas šosejas, līdz ar to tas varētu būt viens no Latvijas priekšlikumiem, ar ko vērsties pie Eiropas Savienības (ES), lai panāktu šādas ieceres realizēšanu, preses konferencē žurnālistiem sacīja Ventspils domes priekšsēdētājs Aivars Lembergs («Latvijai un Ventspilij»).

Pašlaik tiek plānots, kā tērēt ES budžetu, tai skaitā attīstības jautājumos, periodā no 2014. līdz 2020.gadam. Pēc Lemberga domām, arī Latvijai vajadzētu iesniegt priekšlikumus par liela mēroga Eiropas projektiem, kurus šajā periodā par ES līdzekļiem varētu realizēt Latvijas teritorijā.

I'm not the biggest fan of Lembergs (or almost anyone) but that's a GREAT idea!

I; mot really sure, i couldnt find a map anywhere.
Delfi.lv and Valka.lv says that the road will be on the current Zemgales, Burtnieku and Parka street,
on map it would look like this
purple: zemgales, burtnieku and pasta street
red: the rest connection with Estonian border, which wasnt metioned anywhere.

though when lookng from google earth it looks like the bypass will run through Valka's suburbs. Dosent look like the best place for a bypass...

Sorry, I couldn't find something but this
So, "bypass construction" means just reconstruction of existing streets:

The only thing that they'll build from zero is a small part of Rūjienas street next to border (blue line). You can see it on RipleyLV's photo.

I think there is no need for real bypass in Valka. 'Cos the only big (relatively big) town that you can reach by this highway is Tartu. This is the main way nor to Tallinn, nor to St. Petersburg, nor even to Pskov.

Didnt pay much attention to the money. Just the word bypass/apvedceļš makes me think of something else in my mind.

If they had a bypass, it wouldn't be bad, but it isn't a smart idea to build it (a real bypass, not these streets).
Look at the AADT:
http://www.lvceli.lv/LV/PC/PageImages/Original/1435.jpg

Is it necessary to build bypass for a town with such low AADT, when for example Bauska doesn't have one?

By the way, today I saw the reconstructed stretch from road P45 (connecting Baltinava and Kārsava, from ~Zubki to Baltinava). Not bad except the horizontal markings - seems like the builders tried to save money on that It looked like mixed with water 3 times
I guess that stretch from Kārsava to Zubki will be paved too. And some kind of reconstruction for that P45 in Kārsava wouldn't be bad.

If I remember, I will post some pics tomorrow.

That Valka "bypass" seems like a fiction. Why one should take the 2km longer and about the same average speed route trough Valka suburbs? Actually drivers don't choose routing any more and would not follow even direction signs any more - their navigation systems just blindly calculate the fastest way. I see everyone driving trough the town as it is now unless they take some massive traffic calming/slowing measures in the town.

If you're in a light vehicle, it doesn't matter which route you will take, driving through the center or using the bypass, that's your choice. The important thing is they are making this one for heavy transport. I'm sure driving on the current route will be prohibited for trucks over 3,5t or 7,5t.

Yes, but I still doubt that snaking trucks trough suburbs and putting them on local streets is the way to deal with heavy traffic problems (not sure how much Valka suffers from that). This just shifts the problems from one residential streets to other.
Interesting that Valka have an old rail link. I think it would make sense to transform it into a transit street - no local streets, no access roads from private houses, even one overpass.

Your idea is really good, but that would be a rather expensive option for a town with ~7,000 inhabitants and because of ~2000 AADT.

Construction of a new highway (better say half-profile motorway) from Riga till Koknese. See it on the map: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=818

Thanks, I somehow skipped this information. So after reconstruction E22/A6 will be directed to this newly built road? Do they build it 1x2 road with 2x2 reserve for a future? And what about expected AADT for this road?

Precisely.

Quote:

Yes, all junctions and overpasses will have a reserve for an upgrade.

Quote:

Can't find studies about this one. But we're sure it will take most of the traffic that is on current A6.
