Ah, yes, youre right. Sorry for OT, but isnt the upgrading of A4 just fantasy for the next 15 years atleast?

This wouldn't be a rational choice, because AADT in Kaunas-Marijampolė stretch is 13579 vehicles per day (year 2011 data), whereas in Kaunas-Panevėžys stretch around 6000-7000 vehicles per day.

If you mean the LT A4, the only part that needs imminently to be upgraded to 2x2 is the 6km section that it shares with the A16 near or in Vilnius. If you mean the LV A4, then I would guess the A7 between Riga and Bauska would be a higher priority. Anyway, they will build whatever the EU will fund and we should know soon.

There were rumors about Kaunas-Prienai expressway like 3-4 years ago. The AADT there is more than 10 000.
The Lithuanian Road Administration released information, that it plans to build part of Vilnius-Nemenčinė road outside of the city border. The project have long been prepared, but the purchasing of the land... The Vilnius municipality plans to renew its part of the road somewhere in 2014-2015.
There are some plans to lengthen Vilnius-Molėtai road a little bit.
Kaunas-Jonava road waits for Karmėlava bypass and general facelift.

Google Street View arrival to Lithuania inspired me to update a map of Lithuanian roads and create Vilnius map

Ok, here is an updated roadmap of Lithuania - I've added two projects, that has already environmental impact assessed. A5 motorway project between Kaunas and Marijampolė and A9 road expressway project between Radviliškis and Šeduva. If you see on old map without this update - hit a refresh button


Vilnius map. I have marked streets as dual carriageways, which has a divider and have a bit more limited number of crossings than ussual streets (however some stretches have traffic lights). Streets, that are at least 2x2 lanes, but has no divider, were not marked as dual carriageways.


If somebody will spot inaccuracy - feel free to write about it

The distance from where 2x2 starts/ends to Mauručiai and to Juragiai is more or less the same, so I don't think there's much difference.

I'm going to Siaulia next week (3rd April to be exact). Are there any road works I could expect on A12 from LV border to Siauliai? I will be in a hurry, because I need to be there by 10am.
Thanks

No road works there. Pavement on the whole stretch has been changed few years ago.

For any information from Lithuanian roads you can check a page: http://www.eismoinfo.lt/en. Website includes all information about roadworks, also some weather cameras and traffic density.
