Thanks. Both these viaducts need reconstruction ASAP, freight transport keeps devastating them. Maybe when they'll finish works on the roundabout they will close down those viaducts for reconstruction.

And what's happening with the bridge near Jaunmārupe?

Looks like they are starting works from A8 and then slowly moving towards A9. For example, starting the recionstruction of Jaunmārupe bridge when A8 viaduct is halfway done.

That and from Dalbe to Olaine in Riga direction. Afaik they were going to reconstruct that part only if some money from EU is leftover. Talking about Daugavpils, i was there like four days ago, and drove around almost whole Daugavpils and couldnt find the Transporta Mezgls, where is it located? Also, in the new yearbook, i see that reconstruction of A10's 3x3 part could be started if some more EU money is leftover. :o

Cool. There were some problems with the tender (usual stuff), that's why works on these sections started with a delay, the same goes with Jelgavas bypass, but I dunno when works could start there, probably next year.

DTM is located near Jaunā Forštate here: http://maps.google.com/?ll=55.894482...41113&t=k&z=16

It's hard to judge by that map if it's A10, more likely it's A5 from A10 to Babīte, since it has bad pavement.

By the way, in the yearbook map it looks like the intersection between P100 and A8 is going to be reconstructed, again, do you have some info on that?

The marked section in that map is actually this one: http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=A8...1,0&sz=18&z=13

Hello, Latvian forumers.
On this weekend i am planning a trip to Kuldiga from Riga, and wanted to ask you to help me choose the route. Is it more preferable to go A10 and then P130 thru Kandava, OR A9 till Saldus and then P108? Since the difference is only 12 km (according to google maps) the main criteria is the road quality and traffic volume. Thank You for your help in advance!

A10 and then on P130, for sure. You could also use A10 and P121, but its under reconstruction currently, so that wont be the best ride.
