View from the pedestrians bridge. Right side was already reconstructed, left on is nearly completion. Direction -> Kaunas




Direction -> Vilnius.


Old streets, which accessed the road have been closed




Underpass of adjacent road is being constructed


Adjacent streets were renovated too. Here you can see poles for noise barrier

5) Ongoing building of Kairiai town bypass on A9 road. An 2x2 expressway status road will be built. (2011-10-24 update)
Photos by zaraza-Šiauliai from ************

Works start just after the Šiauliai town in suburb of Šiauliai - Aleksandrija town.


Here it will be a simple 2+2, because it's still in city limits




The bypass will turn to the right


You can see, that an underpass is being built here


Some poles for a viaduct could be spotted in a distance


Here is a place where the bypass will merge into a old road. 4 lanes roadbed is already formed


On the already reconstructed 6 km long expressway stretch.

Nice bridge! It's interesting, however, that they've used blocks and steel rather than concrete to build the bridge. These days it seems that concrete is (almost)everywhere.

My impression is that there were too many road junctions and too few signs. Does the situation tend to improve?

Certainly so. Lots of smaller improvements like roundabouts on dangerous junctions and new safety measures (including signage) have been implemented and are being implemented pretty much on all national roads.

Yes, Lithuania (like all of the former soviet empire) suffers from a lack of road signs. The situation is improving, but very slowly. In my opinion, twenty years should have been enough time to erect road signs.

@mcarling

I've read one of your previous posts and it looks like you've visited Lithuania before. Hehe I bet you must be the first person from Singapore to visit there (or any Baltic territory) .

Maybe I should visit the Baltic territories in the future (hehe I might even be the first Filipino tourist to set foot on Baltic soil).

I'm pretty sure quite a few Singaporeans visit the Baltic countries every year
We are rather unknown in Europe but not THAT unknown. Every day you will see scores of Japanese, quite a few Chinese/HK/Taiwanese and some Korean tourists. I'm sure there are some Singaporeans too. Not sure about Filipinos. By all means, you are very welcome to visit!
