Looks very impressive!

I must admit, I haven't followed this project too closely. Is the northernmost point of the Western bypass currently at Pilaites Pr.? If so, are there plans to extend the bypass to the A2?

Of course. This is the whole purpose of the project. Currently the 2nd stage in nearing completion and if there won't be any unexpected obstacles the 3rd stage should start as soon as the 2nd one is fully complete. I guess it will take another 3-4 years from now for the 3rd stage to be completed.

The first sections to be built to motorway/expressway standards will be the Polish S61 from Ostrow Mazowiecka to Suwalki and the Lithuanian A5 from Kaunas to Marijampole, both by about 2020. Suwalki to Marijampole and Kaunas to Panevezys (and Riga to Bauska) will probably be completed by about 2030. From Panevezys to the Latvian border (and onward to Bauska) will probably be after 2030, although Panevezys to Pasvalys might possibly be completed before 2030.

This week the last part (~4 km) of southern bypass of Vilnius was opened for a traffic. Whole stretch is now 7.6 km long, which before construction was ordinary 1x2 lanes road.
User Meier form ************ recorded a video of this stretch. He starts before a viaduct with A1 road to Kaunas, drives whole new stretch and comes back

What's about the eastern extension b/n road 202, A15 and A3 (OSM)? Can we expect that the construction will start in the forseeable future?

Just to clarify, it's not the last part. The recently opened section goes as far as Route 202. The Southern Bypass will eventually be extended all the way to the A3 (highway to Minsk). Anyway, it's great to have it open and thanks for posting the video.

According to some media releases in 2017-2018 a 2km long extension of this road will be built to the U/C Vilnius Public Logistics Center. I didn't find any recent information on when it will be extended to A3 so my guess is probably around 2019-2020. However it will most probably be just a regular 1x2 road.

I guess the main idea is to have a 2x2 road connecting the future logistics terminal with A1 highway while the connection from logistics terminal to A3 will be a less fancy ordinary 1x2 road.

I drew a quick sketch of the situation:

Glad to see Vilniaus Vakarinis Aplinkkelis on the map.

It seems, in 2020 the road network of Vilnius will finally be... Perfect.
