Some construction works are going on in Grigiškės town near Vilnius (road A1, Vilnius - Kaunas). They will make it safer, by building pedesrian bridge, some 2 level junctions, lots of barriers and will make connecting streets. It is a part of programme to upgrade Vilnius - Kaunas road from existing dual carriageway (partly expressway) status road to motorway.
Thanks Corsaro and Romas from ************/forumas for pictures

Building column for pedestrian bridge


There road will be widened


Some constuction of connecting streets






This U-Turn will definately be removed


Some panorama

Yeah, just we have to wait till 2013 :/ Because it seems, that current funding is not enough to do it quicker, but still great, that something is happening

Yesterday contract was signed for another 2x2 project in Lithuania. It is quite short stretch - 6.5 km, but is a part of programme to upgrade A9 Panevėžys - Šiauliai road to dual carriageway. This stretch has AADT of around 12 000. They will widen it to 4 lanes, build some connecting streets, bicycle paths and all neccessary shiny crash barriers and noise walls. Estimate of works 80 mln. Lt (~23 mln EUR). Works most likely to finish on 21st of December 2010.
Another contract for 10.66 km long stretch should be signed at the end of year 2010.
Following is a map where this stretch is

Here is a scheme of reconstruction of A1 road Vilnius - Kaunas part in Grigiškės town. Road will look like this after reconstruction.
Thanks Corsaro from ************/forumas for such find



You may ask why this project is so exited for me. I would answer - because at this moment there are 3 dangerous one level U-turns, speed limit 70 km/h and those 4 lanes are quite narrow. After reconstruction inner traffic of town will go on connecting streets and local traffic won't use A1 hghway, so it will gain motorway status and will be very safe inner crossing of Grigiškės town on the way to Kaunas on A1 road

Another dual carriageway in Lithuania haven't been reviewed yet. A11 road Šiauliai - Palanga stretch just after Šiauliai. It's quite short, 18 kilometers long stretch Šiauliai - Kuršėnai. You can see this stretch marked red in my map:


Thanks copper from ************/forumas for this photo report

Few kilometers after Šiauliai road is still 1x2


Road becomes 2x2. In the distance you can see viaduct of western bypass of Šiauliai


Good quallity road. Small town Kužiai ahead on the right




60? What? Ussually when there are 1 level U-Turns, speed limit is 70-80. They decided to put 60 here...


Finally some clear stretch without stupid U-Turns




Although road qualitty is good, shoulders are wide enough, there are no U-turns, but speed limit is 90 km/h.


Last U-turn and the end of 2x2

Already completed 4 km stretch from Jakai roundabout (0-4 km of road A13). After finishing this stretch 12 kilometers will be reconstructed from 1x2 to 2x2. So whole stretch Klaipėda - Palanga will be 2x2

RipleyLV - stop browsing lithuanian forums Just joking Maybe you could write any latvian forum link, which would be similar to SSc or lithuanian ************ ?

Bleetz - no, it won't get "automagistrale" (motorway) status. They say, that it wasn't priority to raise speed and it's suburbs of Klaipėda blah blah blah... But they will let to do 100 km/h.
