I agree. At least A1/A7 is in much better condition. Except A1's poor ending near Estonian border, it's in fine condition.

OK, thanks for the advice! I do remember that the A8 between Jelgava and LT border was in a pretty bad shape even a few years ago. Are there plans to renovate this section any time soon?

Yes, reconstruction is planned, but no sooner than in 2015.

Wouldnt it be faster to go south from Siauliai to A1? I remember driving the same route, it was very fast, though I was exceeding the speed limit a little.

For driving to Klaipeda the better way from Šiailiai is via Kryžkalnis ([A12]/[A1]), but for driving to Palanga [A11] is better.

A7 roadworks

How are the roadworks on A7 (Iecava -> Bauska) going?

How long are the delays (traffic jams)? Is it better to drive on P89 to Lithuanian border from Riga?

I would recommend taking the A7, the delays are only about ~10 minutes. Usually it would take about 15 minutes to get from Iecava to Bauska, now it takes about 25 minutes.

You can check out traffic restrictions at LVC site here: http://kartes.lvceli.lv/eng/for_road..._restrictions/ Currently road works on A7 are regulated by traffic lights and LVC proposed delay time is 25 min.

Paldies!

That new road is supposed to reach A8 in future, right?

Yes, the current junction design with A7 is being built so that in the future construction of a continuation to A8 could be possible as it seen in this render below:

When are the works on the A7 between Iecava and Bauska expected to be completed? What about the Kekava bypass?

Nothing has changed in 15 months, during which a whole new 7 year EU funding plan has been adopted. Ok. Thanks.
