That's it. Thanks

What's the state of Juglas iela in Riga? Is the new road between Bikernieku and Lubanas iela opened now?

And what about junction of Slavu and Lubanas iela? Is it completed?

I'm driving from Estonia to Riga's airport next week and planning to bypass central Riga along Juglas and Lubanas iela and Salu bridge.

Really good looking piece of road. I see there is a reserve on the left (if you take a look in 1st photo). What purpose is for it? Because I don't see any type of road constructed there.

I was there on Saturday - looks nice.
Xmaster, I may guess that a sidewalk for pedestrians or cyclists will be built. Look carefully to the first picture. Behind the bridge in the left side there are stairs that are ending in nowhere. Sidewalk seems logic there.

Not realy news, but LVC said that if EU and goverment allocates enough money for 2014-2020 financing period, then construction of Kekava bypass (2x2) could start in two years - 2014. Also A10 from Priedaine to Sloka should be reconstructed to 2x2 and whole A4 too. That all should be built in 2014-2020 period. They all would meet expressway or motorway standart.

Would the A7 then be 2x2 all the way from Riga to the A5 and beyond to wherever the bypass will join the existing A7 south of Kekava?

E22 deadline is autumn, 2012, if they won't agree with land owners in the first half of next year, then most probably opening will be delayed to 2013 autumn. The same is happening with Ludza-Nirza section, works are on hold for a while now because of land problems.

If you'll be able to capture work progress on Olaine-Dalbe section, then I'm very interested!

Not exactly good news, the Olaine-Dalbe section still isnt opened, but it looks like it could open any day, everything looks done, except some bus stops. I wasnt able to capture much of that, but for a bonus i filmed the reconstruected A5 interchange with A8 and A9 + the whole reconstructed strecth between the interchanges. Video will be uploaded soon.
