Yep, the section south of Jelgava carries only 3 200 vehicles, dropping to 1 300 vehicles at the border. A7 is almost three times as busy at the Lithuanian border.

That's comparable to T4/E67 in Estonia between Pärnu and the Latvian border which carries 2300-3500 cars/day.

This section of A8 is going to have a capital reconstruction next year from Jelgava city limits till turn to Lielvircava in total 11,5 km lenght. Further works could start in 2014, when Latvia will get next access to EU funding.

OMG, still nothing happens on A2. Someone got any news about it's reconstruction? It was planned to begin in this year or 2012, but I haven't heard anything since 2009.

That would be true in a bigger country, but not necessarily in a very small country like Latvia. In Singapore (2.5 times the population of Latvia), the Transport Minister shows up for events like this. Singapore has a good record of completing infrastructure projects more or less on time and on budget. On the other hand, it's difficult to imagine the US Secretary of Transportation or the Chinese Minister of Transportation showing up for a minor bridge opening.

At least it's not that hilarious as once Jaunciems near Riga was written in Cyrillic.
