Motorways and expressways? Sweet. Is there legislation for those already? And what's the difference between those two in Latvia?

What about the new bridge east of the Riga reservoir dam - any guesses about years?

So sweet. I truly hope all of it would be built until 2025 or 2030 at most.. And a question as you said.. What about new A6/E22 part? The one that is being built now. Afaik it was planned as a future motorway too..

Information I used for the map is mostly pre-crisis stuff, so these plans will probably change, whenever something of the shown will go ahead. As for motorways and expressways, the biggest diffrence is the speed limit (130/110 km/h respectively and expressways are allowed to have one interchange per kilometer, but motorways are allowed to have one interchange on bigger distance (4km?).

Are you talking about the one shown on map? On pre-crisis time it was planned that construction would start around 2014, but now it seems that we wont see any construction there before 2025, but I hope I'm wrong, hehe.

Only few projects could be realised before that time, probably A10, Ķekava bypass A7, and maybe the E22 enterance in to Riga.
A6/E22 Tīnu˛i-Koknese wont be upgraded in nearest time, I haven't heard any real plans for that, though thats my guess, because I havent seen any real plans on paper about widening it.

Hmm, thanks. But it's still weird, because when I read the project somewhere like year ago it was one of main purposes of current construction, to widen it starting from 2017 or something like that. That's also the reason why they're making 2 level junctions on the road. Or at least they should make them..

Yeah, there were some talks, but nothing has really been done on that matter since then. Anyway the project itself wont payoff in another 20-30 years, not even talking about the further stages till Pļavinas and even Jēkabpils, so I dont see them widening it until it starts to pay off, or atleast until E22 is extended in to Riga, and as I said, that wont happen in the next ten years.

I see. In that case expressway is probably better to Ainaži as well as it is at the Riga bypass. But all the way to Bauska? Not motorway at all?

Yes, on E67. Maybe EU could help a little, it would benefit international traffic a lot anyway.

All of these projects will probably built only if EU helps with the money. Our road budget is about 150 million Lats a year, that includes maintaining the highways in winter etc. Almost all current construction works are financed by EU.

This might as well be the final version for now, I have scrapped the motorway/expressway colours and created just one, for all dual carriageways, removed final part of Jelgava and Ķekava southern bypass and added the last missing link of Riga bypass.

And here is the map of Riga, I would appriciate some corrections, because I have a feeling that something is missing.



----
Another bunch of projects that will probably be realised this year:
  • Seam recovery on Saulkrasti bypass. ~50 000Ls
  • Renovation of Riga HES, bridge over Daugava. ~65 000Ls
  • Renovation of A5 interchange with A8 and V13. ~170 000Ls
  • Renovation of A12 viaduct over Rēzekne - Pskov railway line. ~220 000Ls.
  • Finishing reconstruction of E22/P32 local road 0.0.km - 2,060km. ~727 000Ls.
  • A8 (Rīga - Jelgava - LT) 49.3km - 60,0km. ~7 395 000Ls.

AADT list for 2012 has been released. I've put the A roads on a map.


Red = 25,000+
Dark Orange = 20,000 - 25,000
Orange = 10,000 - 20,000
Dark Blue = 5,000 - 10,000
Light blue = 0 -5,000

Comparing to 2011, in general the traffic volumes have increased. Especially on A5, A6 and A9, but we still haven;t reached the pre-crisis amount.

Hey, where did you get information about planned dual carriageways in post #1492?
Who has planned those roads to be rebuilt?

You got me wrong. Simply I think that you might be wrong a bit.
For example A6 section Pļaviņas - Jēkabpils. I'm sure that it won't be dual carriageway. It makes no sense because E22 section Tīnūži - Koknese is built as 2 lane road. By the way, Riga East entrance (E22) is going to be dual carriageway till A4 only.
Then A7. Probably will be dual carriageway till Iecava but not till Bauska.
A9. There might be dual carriageway in a far future (if you are interested then add it's section till road P98).

Maybe your sources are different from my sources and that could explain something

No, no, my sources come from LVC.
Pļāvinas - Jēkabpils will be built after widening Tīnu˛i-Koknese and after Koknese-Pļaviņas gets built. Riga enterance road will be all the way motorway, and after that, all the sections until Jēkabpils will be widened.
A7 will be dual carrigeway until Bauska + Bauska bypass, but that wont be realised in the next 10-15 years, probably, except for Ķekava bypass.
A9 wont be a dual carriageway in the next 30 years atleast, due to lack of traffic, though it will be upgraded to Via Baltic/Tīnu˛i - Koknese standarts, leaving spaces to widen it if traffic demands it.

You should put other objects in this list too
I agree that we might see dual carriageways in places you mentioned but not in near future. Let's take Koknese - Pļaviņas or Pļaviņas - Jēkabpils. Right now AADT there is ~6000 vehicles per day. Don't forget that some of them (1/2 or maybe 1/3) anyway will use existing A6. What do we get - 3000-4000 vehicles per day on the new road. Is there any needs for dual carriageway there? Sounds NO for me.
AADT annual growth isn't the same as it was on year 2007 and it might take some time to rise the AADT.

Some news:
  • P130 Līgas-Kandava-Veģi (13,950km - 15,300km) roadbed deformation prevention works should start this summer.
  • A12 Jēkabpils-Rēzekne-Ludza-RUS (162,000km - 163,700km) reconstruction works should start in 2014.
