wow! viaduct looks nice! though, I think two lanes each way is not that good for traffic around Vilnius, there could be three.. pity, there are no more such ones in LT, if I'm not wrong..

Has Lithuania since independence built any new motorways, or only upgraded Soviet expressways?

Nope, they haven't! They are only upgrading those old Soviet motorways (A1), (A2) and other main roads. Mostly they build new pedeastrian bridges and reconstruct old viaducts.

Gas prises: PB95 - 3,82 Lt za litr [x0,96 PLN(0,93) za 1 Lit] 1litr PB 95 wychodzi za 3,66 PLN (3,55) dużo taniej jak w Polsce. Dujos czyli Gaz (LPG) po 2,12 mniejsza różnica 20 groszy na litrze.
Gas in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia is the cheepest in EU

Near Kaunas at the river Nemunas, here you can go to Riga via A8 {E67} (LV).
We go on A5 E67 to Mariampol, Kalvarije i Budzisko (PL)



11
Intersection A1 with A5



12
Exit to A5. To the right you can see Kaunas



13
Baypass of Kaunas. We drive down to the valley of Nemunas

Great view (with car §$%&)

On the Kaunas's baypass


17
End of the baypass. We go to Mariampol A5 E67


18
Direction Mariampol, first few kilometers we can see a rebuilding to 2x2 , as well as on one section near Mariampola.


19
Road to the polish border


The trip on the road from Klaipeda to polish border was very nice (you can drive quite fast, 3,5 hours).

Pics from A13 Palanga - Klaipeda, A1 Klaipeda- Kaunas and A5 Kaunas - polish border. Made on Friday (01.08.2008)

Dual carriageway from Palanga to Klaipeda. Left cars with bed and breakfast offers.
Here are allowed 70 km/h.






Few kilometers before Klaipeda we have a one-carriageway section



Near Klaipeda: a big rounabound, beginning of A1 to Kaunas





Beginning of A1:




Speed reduction to 90/70 km/h in rebuilding area:







Although is Friday (start of weekend) the trafic is not to strong:





Turning point:




One of the intersections. Crash barriers appear, but only in Klaipeda direction. Well, the drivers who come back from vacation on Baltic Sea are more relax, calm. They don't need one




Not far away from Kaunas. The trafic become denser. A 2x3 highway in the future would be nice:



Beginning of the Kaunas baypass. End of a highway, so you can not more go 130 km/h, though the standard of the way is the same like A1. The police will remind you if necessary.






We go to the right to "Varsuva"


Straight and even road to the border to Poland:



The road is nice to drive:


just befor the border:



That's all

Great pics! We've already seen some of them (like that Slovenian dude ), but not all. It's interesting how some of those fairly new green signs already look so crappy.

No motorways, but some expressways. Just they are quite short. For example 20 km long 2x2 from Kaunas to Latvian border and Daugavpils direction (road A6) finished several years ago
Photo (c) Romas from miestai.net/forumas



Or 16 km long 2x2 expressway from Šiauliai to Kaliningrad direction (road A12) finished 2 years ago


Now 2x2 from Klaipėda to Palanga (road A13) is being built and approx 14 km long 2x2 from Vilnius to Utena (A14 road)
Some pictures of already built 2x2 dual carriageway from Klaipėda to Palanga
Photo (C) Eimantas from miestai.net/forumas




And some construction photos



And I made small map of existing motorways and expressways/dual carriageways in Lithuania to see them clearly


We have 309,11 km of motorways with speed limit 130 km/h (from 1st of April to 1st of November) and 110 km/h (from 1st of November to 1st of April)

Nice pictures!

About the map you made: It seems like Kaunas-Klaipeda and Vilnius-Panevezys are both not 2×2. Is that true?

They are. They are 2x2 highways with speed limit 130 km/h. I just wanted to separate expressways from highway standart raod. Those red ones are just usual 2x2 with speed limits 100 or 110 and orange ones are highway standart roads

Why do they have a different line on the map? They're also "2×2 motorways", right?

Sorry I made mistake in writings I updated map now. These red ones are not motorways, but expressways or dual carriageways and orange ones are pure highways

Highways = Motorways in this image, but can have other meanings in other discussions, such as regular roads. Note that not everybody thinks of a 2x2 limited access road when people are talking about a highway.

Thanks for updating! A highway can indeed be any road
