New asphalt has been laid already after Jugla.

But after a little while, traffic is regulated by traffic lights.

Thats how the road looks there:

I regularly travel on the A13 and the A12 every year going through Daugavpils > Rezekne > Zilupe > Terehova > Russia. The A13 from the Lithuanian border is a disgrace with hardly any improvements in the last 5 years. I know that money is tight and that Latvia is having a tough time but this route is in part a major trucking route into Russia from the EU and I cannot understand why it is taking so long to upgrade the roads. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable and able to read Latvian can explain to me! And don't worry about national pride! Parts of the M9 in Russia are worse than anything in Latvia.

Latgale (the region where A12 and A13 is) is the most undeveloped region of Latvia. There are hardly any road constructions going on there currently, nothing much is planned too. I wont get into much detlais why is that happening and so on, but there was planned reconstruction of some part of A13 between Daugavpils and Rēzekne in 2011, but it was never realised because of the rising coasts of construction, and other more needed projects were put ahead. On the other hand A12 is an OK road between Jēkabpils and Rēzekne. Currently a new highway is being built from Ludza till Zilupe and will be finished next year. After finishing the road will get the A12 name and will be few kilometers shorter than the old A12, and it will also be 1.5 + 1.5 lanes.

Thanks for that. I guess that's why the Rezekne hotels aren't so good either. The trucks will have somewhere nice to park then. I was under the impression that there was a plan to redevelop the border crossing to increase capacity but I don't try to hold my breath waiting for it.

AFAIK, there is some construction going on at the border too (my construction map). Atleast there was something happening when i was travelling around Latgale last year.

Yes there are widening A12 to 2+1 standard. GS has that covered: http://goo.gl/maps/F6sH Unfortunately no funding for A13 though.

Nice that street view goes right to the border control! Strange that LT can allocate funds to A13 border with LV yet LV feels that it is not necessary.

I'm sure A13 will attract more investments in the next EU planning period starting from 2014, nevertheless it's a very important route on which our authorities should show interest for more development.

A10 Rīga - Ventspils reconstruction (24 - 36km).

In the first kilometers final layer os asphalt has been already laid.
[IMG]http://i49.************/14wqh3c.jpg[/IMG]

Few km's later only 1 lane has it's final layer laid.
[IMG]http://i45.************/1ffw93.jpg[/IMG]

This stretch is still waiting for it's final layer.
[IMG]http://i49.************/xn88l2.jpg[/IMG]

In a shirt while, you can see that only of the lane's has asphalt, the other is still waiting or it so we are driving on gravel.
[IMG]http://i45.************/29aqr1w.jpg[/IMG]

Somewhere around 30th kilometer, the olf asphalt has been removed and the traffic ir organized on gravel.
[IMG]http://i46.************/28lf0x3.jpg[/IMG]

As you can see, it was quite a dusty drive there.
[IMG]http://i48.************/2di0i1g.jpg[/IMG]

And here.
[IMG]http://i47.************/jzchub.jpg[/IMG]

As it can be seen, in the last km's one lane still has the old pavement.
