Section is too short (~8 km) to be a motorway

I found something:

Quote:
Die litauische Regierung hat schneller als erwartet eine Straßennutzungsgebühr eingeführt. Nach einem Regierungsbeschluss müssen seit 31. Mai 2005 alle in- und ausländischen Lkw und Busse für die Benutzung des übergeordneten Straßennetzes Maut bezahlen. Die Mautgebühren sind nach dem zulässigen Gesamtgewicht und der Aufenthaltsdauer in Litauen gestaffelt. Ein 24-stündiger Aufenthalt kostet für alle Fahrzeugkategorien einheitlich 20 Litas (rund 5,80 Euro). Die Gebühr für eine Woche beträgt je nach Fahzeugklasse zwischen 40 und 90 Litas, die Jahresgebühr für ein 40-t-Fahrzeug liegt bei 1.900 Litas (rund 551,- Euro). Betroffen sind die Straßen A 1 bis A 18, die den wesentlichen Verkehrs- und Transitrouten Litauens entsprechen. Bezahlt werden können die Gebühren an den Grenzübergängen bei den dortigen Bankenbüros. Die Einzahlungsbelege mit Angabe der Aufenthaltsdauer und des Fahrzeugkennzeichens gelten als Zahlungsnachweis.
german source

It says trucks and buses, also foreign ones, have to pay a toll for A1 and A18, which they have to pay at the border. 24-hour toll is 20 litas = € 5,80. one week toll is 40 - 90 litas, and a yearly toll for a 40-tonne truck is 1900 litas (= € 551). You get a receipt as an evidence you payed tolls, as well as registration of the license plate.

I think it says for A1 to A18 (A1, A2, A3, ... A18).

You're right Verso. A1 to A18 (not as a route, but like you said).

Photo of A1 and Via baltica junction near Kaunas


And some days ago I updated a roads map, because short 2x2 construction near Vilnius on A14 road was finished. When I will drive there, I will take some pics

In Vilnius? It's ok Yeah on streets is always +10-20 extra speed over speed limit, but overall people are polite and friendly. Yeah there some *******s, but such a life By the way summer is agreat time, because lots of people are on holidays, so there aren't so much traffic

So, finally some A14(Vilnius - Utena) pictures, how it looks after reconstruction. Sadly weather this morning was not perfect for taking pics from a car...
So let's start. Some European Union promotion just before begining of reconstructed section


Have no idea why they left sign 70 here. Now road looks like 100 times safer than it was before, but speed limit is old one. Maybe later they will remove it


Driving along. Zoomed picture


A zoomed panoramic picture


Approaching a junction with traffic lights. Later here will be viaduct, but no exact dates. I think when economy will be better. This junction reminds me Road nr.8 in Poland between Warsaw and Piotrkow Tribunalski, when there is a traffic lights junction on 2x2 road in the middle of nowhere


Driving along. 14 km remains to the Vilnius city center






Office building on the left


By the way: before reconstruction this place looked like this. Good difference, huh ?


Approaching another traffic lights junction


These signs are huuuuge. Could fit on motorway




Vilnius is right here

Looks like an expressway to me with traffic lights and lacking shoulders. But it looks like a very good road (and indeed the map doesnt label it as a motorway either, nor an expressway, so maybe it is not an expressway in Latvian jurisdiction?).

I like the office building photographed .

^ Alle: not Latvian it's Lithuanian roads topic And this stretch can't be marked in maps, because it was finished last week, so we have to wait for update
