Can somebody tell me, are there any restrictions in Lithuania for beginner drivers(less than 2 years of driving experience)? I need to drive to Lithuania and back this summer and I was wondering if I'm allowed to drive 130 km/h on the motorway. In Estonia, for example, beginner drivers mustn't drive over 90 km/h.

There are restrictions for drivers with less than 2 years driving experience: 70 km/h on regular roads and 90 km/h on motorways.

A great report of zaraza-Šiauliai from ************.
Pictures are from road A9 Šiauliai - Panevėžys. This 6.5 km long section is being reconstructed from existing 1x2 to 2x2 road.







Material for underground animal crossing


Is it possible to put 2x2 road under narrow viaduct? In Lithuania - no problems Sad if tey will do so...






A place for a new viaduct


Here the road makes curve to right - here will start a bypass of Kairiai town. This bypass will be 9 km long. Proposal for construction should be published at the end of this year (according to plans)


Future path for Kairiai town bypass

Cool! Where will it go? Would be awesome if it connected with A12 in north of Šiauliai to bypass also Ginkūnai town.

I was hoping for something like this:

But it's still great to have a new bypass.

Your proposed route wouldn't be so usefull. The biggest traffic flow is from Radviliškis to Šiauliai, so when bypass is as planned as now, then Kairiai town won't get traffic from such route

^ I agree! Only Ripley's variant could be successful for transit transport, I bet the residents of Šiauliai would also agree about that!

And how do you think the police will react if I drive 90km/h on regular roads? I mean, I don't want to disrupt the normal traffic flow, which driving 70km/h definitely does.

Depends on how lucky you are Actually, when I was beginner driver 4 years ago, I ussually drove 80-90 km/h. Other drivers flash lights if they spot police near road so you can slow down then, but another problem is unmarked police cars with video equipment. They can capture you from behind, so then you will be unable to spot them - usually unmarked police cars are: Audi A6 or A4, Volkswagen Golf and Volkswagen Caddy.
Drive 80 and you are pretty safe, drive 90 and be more carefull - that's how it is

Vilnius western bypass 1st stage construction photos by SPX from ************







Here is a tunnel being built


A turn to bypass


Construction works ahead. From this angle it seems that road will be 2x2 with shoulder lanes.




Unfortunately the end of 1st stage and road. Don't know when the second stage, which will be much longer will start.

Nice. The Vilnius region seems to be developing a quite good expressway network with high-standard roads.

I wonder if there ever will be a high-standard route from Vilnius towards the Polish S63/DK8. The current high-standard route via Kaunas is quite a detour.

I think you meant S61,not S63. I don't think, that such road will become a high standard road (2x2). Maybe if later economy will be booming again Traffic volumes aren't enough to build the motorway or expressway on such route:




The problem is, that Alytus or Marijampolė, which would be on the way to Polish S61/DK8 aren't big enough towns, to build enough traffic density for that direction, so it would be a waste of money if government would decide to build an expressway or motorway in this direnction.

^ Really, a waste of money?! I doubt that cos sooner or later we'll need to construct a 2x2 motorway through all Baltic states, from Polish border way to Tallinn. Having it built sooner, I think, there will be a drammatic rise of travellers to Lithuania as well as this would attract them to Latvia and Estonia.

You got me wrong We are talking not about Via Baltica, but to build a motorway from Vilnius to Polish border direction. Via Baltica is no doubt neccessary and motorway works between Kaunas and Marijampolė should start ~2013-2014.

Yeah, I meant such a connection:

In the long-term, a Vilnius - Hrodna - Białystok route may be even better, but I don't see that happening with the current situation in Belarus, only if Belarus was to join EU and Schengen.

Not wise in my opinion.

I totally agree. We had the same restrictions(70km/h for beginner drivers) but that was abolished some 10 years ago, I think.
