Probably some parts will be built this year and maybe some next years.

As you see, most of A8 road will be reconstructed. Exceptions are some small stretches, end part (Jelgava - border) and left part of dual carriageway near Olaine.

Thanks for the info
I like the way how Latvian road administration shows the stretches, which will be renovated/reconnstructed. Lithuanian are too lazy and they just write between which kilometers works will take place. Then you have to go to Google maps ir search it for yourself

There arent left many unpaved roads in that region, compared to all the unpaved roads around Ērgļi. Though paved roads like P99 are just disastorous.

Exactly. Paved roads in Zemgales region are in poor condition, nothing has been improved since the time they were built. That's why I'm suprised about it.

As far as I know, you are right. In this case ERAF money goes for paving unpaved regional roads ONLY.

makaveli6, once you wanted to get information about road A4 AADT (for Wikipedia article). As I see, it can be found in LSR website:

http://www.lvceli.lv/LV/Download/?t=pagefile&i=257

Probably usual AADT map isn't published yet but this excel file should be good enough for your needs, I guess.

I see that now this Riga region map is available outside PDF too. Look at the same link.
For foreigners:
number in bold - AADT (average annual daily traffic value);
smaller number - freight transport - trucks, buses and so on.

I made some fast and approximate calculations - AADT has decreased but only a little - like 2% or so. Freight traffic has increased almost everywhere.

It's hard to say, whether this decrease is normal or not. As we all know, in year 2007 there was a very great and not planned increase of AADT but after that it fell down each year. Maybe if there were no such great increase of AADT but normal 3% (or whatever) increase every year, today we would reach the same year 2010 AADT.

If your economy declines by double-digit figures, traffic volumes often go down too. A bad economy is the best remedy to reduce traffic congestion if you don't want to expand the road network.

VPP projekta „Autoceļa E77/A2 posms Rīgas apvedceļš–Sēnīte” turpmākā realizācija apturēta


2011. gada 18. februāris


Satiksmes ministrija 2008. gadā uzsāka iepirkumu valstī pirmajam valsts un privātās partnerības (VPP) projektam autoceļu nozarē „E77/A2 posms Rīgas apvedceļš–Sēnīte”, lai arī iepirkuma organizēšana tika deleģēta va/s „Latvijas Valsts ceļi”. Piemērotā iepirkuma procedūra bija slēgts konkurss divās kārtās. Pēc kandidātu atlases kārtas kvalificētie četri kandidāti tika uzaicināti iesniegt piedāvājumus. Piedāvājumu iesniegšanas dienā netika saņemts neviens piedāvājums un iepirkums Nr. SM 2008/3 noslēdzās bez rezultātiem.

Neviens no pretendentiem nesaņēma attīstības banku (Eiropas Investīciju banka, Ziemeļu Investīciju banka, Eiropas Rekonstrukcijas un attīstības banka) atbalstu projekta līdzfinansēšanai, kas tika pamatots ar atsevišķiem līguma punktiem, piemēram, kompensācijas apmērs privātajam partnerim/finansētājam pārtraucot līgumu publiskā partnera bankrota gadījumā u.c., kuri nevar tikt akceptēti no finansētāju puses.

Izvērtējot visus piedāvātos risinājumus, Satiksmes ministrija 2010. gada 1. decembrī pieņēma lēmumu, ka pašreizējā ekonomiskajā situācijā turpināt valsts un privātās partnerības projektu nav akceptējami un ir nepieciešams meklēt citus risinājumus šī ceļu posma sakārtošanai pieejamo resursu apjomos. Līdz ar to projekta „Autoceļa E77/A2 posms Rīgas apvedceļš–Sēnīte” virzība valsts un privātās partnerības finansējuma piesaistei tiek apturēta.

Latvian state roads, have released a map for black spots on roads in 2011.
An article in Latvian:
http://www.lvceli.lv/lv/?i=245
Quote:
Black spots

Protect himself and his close people!
Remember! Every one of those who died in car accidents or disabled for life, just as you were convinced that with them nothing can happen.

Black spots, black spots marked on the map, the intersections and road links, which occurs mostly to traffic accidents. We warn riders - be careful when approaching the black spots. Reduce the speed limit!

The map is intended to draw attention to dangerous driving road sections, calling for a reduction to speed and focus attention towards them.




Seeing a road sign "Dangerous stretch of road" before crossing, reduce speed, to estimate the potential hazard causes and sources, consider a specific organization of traffic on the site, Know the visibility and transparency conditions. Evaluate the risks of crossing the intersection, and the fact that the parties could be under threat. Follow the road signs and marking requirements. Regardless of whether you are on the main road or less important, a number sure about safety when crossing the intersection.

Road sign "Dangerous stretch of road" before the bend warns that the law can not proceed without further attention, no special treatment for security. Reduce your speed, to estimate the road surface characteristics and the state, Know the visibility and transparency conditions, evaluate potential risks in this stretch of road. Taking into account the specific circumstances, select appropriate and safe speed and trajectory to leave the road section.

Seeing a road sign "Dangerous stretch of road" augšupceļa end, reduce the speed, as well as in accordance with the provisions of the Road Traffic speed selected according to the viewing distance. This means that when approaching a hill high point, every moment will reduce the visibility distance. In this place may not even overtake slow moving vehicles, not being able to ascertain the safety drill. Comply with road signs and marking requirements. Speed may be to increase only when the viewing distance will be sufficient for safety.

Seeing a road sign "Dangerous stretch of road" before the pedestrian crossing, reduce speed, regardless of whether or not to, and at pedestrian crossings, whether or not people. This is a disciplinary matter. According to the Road Traffic Regulations driver must give way to pedestrians, so regardless of the distance and speed should be able to stop the vehicle before the pedestrian crossing. Several times to make sure that the transition is close to pedestrians and cyclists, or a car or other object is obscured visibility to the pedestrian crossing and its vicinity.

Seeing a road sign "Dangerous stretch of road" Road narrows (on / before the bridge), reduce the speed limit. In this place may not even overtake slow moving vehicles, not being able to ascertain the safety drill. Comply with road signs and marking requirements, understand the organization of traffic and benefits (giving way) features of this stretch of road. Speed may be to increase only when the dangerous stretch of road rutted.
