Weird things going on Google maps.
Look at A14 and A13 intersection. Wow, I see a roundabout there (there should be none). Let's look closer - they have marked the wrong road! Real paved A14 is unmarked but some gravel road is marked as A14...

And the whole Daugavpils bypass (A6 + A14) ir marked as A13 too.

I look at Bing or zl.lv maps anyway. Google can't even add Southern bridge to the map.

I have done three videos of highways in Latvia, though i havent uploaded them anywhere.
1st) Driving in Riga (mostly A10)
2nd) Riga-Saulkrasti-Murjāņi-Inčukalns-Ropaži-Tīnuži-Salaspils-Riga (A1, A3, A2, A6 and other P roads)
3rd) Apšuciems - Riga (A10, A5 and P roads)
If anyone is interested to see them, tell me and ill upload that video, all of them ofcourse are in HD.

I wondered why the cloverleaf loop branches off, which is unusual. I found it on Google maps and it seems to be to allow access to some small residential streets. It's quite a strange arrangement that I have never seen before.

You can see it here: http://maps.google.co.uk/?ie=UTF8&ll...38581&t=h&z=15

No. The K. Ulmaņa gatve/Jūrkalnes iela crossing in Rīga is the second one.

Nice video. The condition of roads seem to be not that bad.

by the way, it's somehow strange to see so much snow there

Theoretically it should be other way. Last winter was very cold and roads were frozen till the spring and that's better for roads than weather changes.

MAP:
[IMG]http://i55.************/2nak0v5.jpg[/IMG]
Nothing is going there currently, they are still in technological break, but works should continue soon. Speed limit currnetly is lowered to 70kmh, and the works should be finished this year.
Heres the newly laid pavement.

Reconstruction of P80/E22 from 5th till 41st kilometer.
MAP:
[IMG]http://i54.************/20ud54x.jpg[/IMG]
Here are few, pictures of the setion between P8 and Tīnuži. There are alot of small bridges U/C in that section currently.
Most of the images are in pretty much horrible quality, even though they are made with 12mp camera, dirty windows, tried to restore some colours, heres the result.

[IMG]http://i54.************/10s81ec.jpg[/IMG]
Here start newly laid pavement, closer to Tīnuži.
[IMG]http://i56.************/5wj8zp.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://i55.************/rhvmza.jpg[/IMG]
And heres a video too, dirty windows though

All works should be finished next year.
Btw, will E22 will be rerouted through P80 and A6 will loose E22 status? And also, is the road going to be renamed to an A road or something?
