Doesn't the article say that the new bypass uses an existing bridge over the river? Or did I read that wrong? If it does use an existing bridge, then it would seem to probably run along Rūjienas iela.

Thanks, but I think I'm reading the article as saying that the new part of the bypass is 500 meters. The new part on your (second) map looks like about 300-350 meters.

I'm sorry to pick at your theories, especially since I don't have one of my own.

I was just thinking about the same, but i could not find any other place where the new road could go. Maybe some one can confirm which is the right route?

I have a theory, which is probably wrong, but I don't have a better theory. What if Rūjienas iela were extended to the southwest? The problem is that a 500 meter extension is a little bit too short to reach anywhere.

Do you mean connecting Rūjienas street to Talavas street?

Yes, that's what I meant. I apologize for not being more clear.

That could actually be right. I do know that the part on the Estonian border, is straightened, seen it with my own eyes, but i do not know abaout anything else, but connecting Rūjienas street to Talavs street could be around 500-550 meters, taking that it isn't perfectly straight, avoiding some buildings.

The new 500m long stretch mentioned in the article is this one below:


It starts from Estonian T6 in Valga, bypasses old customs terminal and later connects with A3. The map makaveli draw is correct.

Today I noticed fresh signs installed on Eastern highway in Riga before crossing with Brīvibas avenue. IMO, Purvciems destination should be changed when the final stage of EH will be completed.

- - -
In other local news, as of today the speed limit on Dobeles highway in Jelgava was raised from 50 to 70 km/h. Video of the mentioned road is available here (start at 1:10).

There is also a sign on Brīvības Street in the direction to center just before the junction that shows the way to "Austrumu maģistrāle" (the sign says exactly "Austrumu maģistrāle" and shows that it's the way to the port).

That's good. When Ieriķu-Vietalvas part will exist, I can't think of a better replacement for Purvciems than changing it to Dienvidu tilts with A6 and A7 indicators without Kaunas and Vicebsk names, that's about the sign posted above. After this crossing we'll see the usual signage just like it is before Slāvu junction, and there instead of Piedrujas street, destination should be changed to Austrumu maģistrāle.

Any truck drivers here that could help me with a question?
Latvia has got 2 border crossing points for trucks - Grebņeva and Terehova. Usually car queue is much shorter in Grebņeva than Terehova but due to some reasons truck drivers keep driving through Terehova. It would be easier to cross border at Grebņeva and then drive to your destination from there. It would be a bit longer journey but much faster.
I guess that there is some explanation - maybe some kind of special checking for something in customs?

I'll try to answer your question as soon as I speak with one of the drivers.

In the mean time, what the hell happened to Google Maps? I noticed the new update, Southern bridge and Slāvu junction is finally visible, but what bothers me is why they added 3rd stage from SB to Ziepniekkalna street which is on hold currently? Not to mention the further planned part to A8. And E22 Tīnūži-Koknese and Ludza-Ploski is visible with all junctions, even though it's U/C. You can choose your route on these roads, despite the fact they haven't been built yet, but it's cool though.

You're asking the wrong question here - is it even planned? I think they made some kind of a mistake by putting that section.

Oh, i was afraid of sounding stupid. But all in all, it's pretty nice to see the maps updated.

Also I noticed two errors:
1) E22 crossing with P79 North of Koknese is a roundabout, not a 2-level junction.
2) The same with E22/P52 crossing before Zilupe, there's a roundabout.
