Such road is important at the moment only for Lithuania so it's quite impossible at the moment.

The Vilnius - Klaipėda motorway (A1) turns 25 years today! The final segment of A1 between Kaunas and Klaipėda opened on September 1, 1987

That's what I'm saying. Chris must be the only person on this planet to have noticed that. My respect
I'll know that from now on.

Also, wasn't A1 the only (or at least one of very few?) motorways in the USSR back then?

A nicely made picture of Jakai interchange near Klaipėda was posted by user Briedis from ************ forum.

From a closeup picture we can see, that 3rd stage of works will be started later (2 more junctions)

It seems the first (shortest) stretch of southern bypass of Vilnius (Kirtimų street) is 100 percent ready for traffic.
Pictures by Zorro from ************
View towards A4/A16 road




First stretch is just ~1 km long and ends just before newly built viaduct with Lentvario street


View backwards. Picture was taken from a top of viaduct


A view further, towards A4/A16 road and 2nd stage of works




A viaduct of railway is being built here


After a railway, street climbs for an overpass of Galvės street (road A4/A16)




An overpass, looking from Galvės street


And after it it will overpass another branch of railway




Further works haven't been captured.

Looks good. You can see that part south of A4/A16 being congested with trucks on Google Earth imagery.

Yes, exactly. That was also a point, why a project finally received funding. Trucks congestion is because few reasons:
  • A road is being used by a truck which are comming from A15 and A3 roads and uses Kirtimų street, road 106 after Kirtimai street to bypass Vilnius;
  • In this area there is probably one of the highest concentration of logistic comapnies as well as production companies;

User Audriuss from ************ continued a photo tour of southern bypass of Vilnius

A viaduct over a railway


Here a corner will be cut, which will create little shortcut in comparison with old road


Not much works are done in this stretch


Here some underpass will be built for an access to companies located near road


In this stretch just earthworks have been done


Building a viaduct over the othr branch of railway




Here an asphalt is already paved


Another underpass
