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
I'm really struggling to find any more specific info in english, so I would really like to ask you for another favour. If anyone would be so kind and post some links in lithuanian (and then I'm going to translate it) or even better in english. Thanks you are saving my ass and it is still Christmas time, so Marry Christmas to all!

All ways marked under construction on that map above should be changed as fully operating roads (black marking). Construction on blue marked ways isn't started yet. Construction of North/South road (Western bypass) of Vilnius will start in late 2014

Enviromental impact assesed for Kaunas eastern (southeastern) bypass:
http://www.infraplanas.lt/site/uploa...ROGRAMA_06.pdf

Construction will start 2020, when Kaunas-Marijampole will be likely under construction or even complete.

Talking about the map, I unspotted any map of planned and perspective highway constructions in 5 to 10 year period made by national authorities so it would be cool that our map would be expanded (planned widenings, constructions of new dual-carriegeways, expressways and motorways in 10-20 year perspective)

I was there a couple of months ago it looked like construction was starting. Maybe what I saw was soil investigation or an unrelated project.

Summarizing year 2013, they were pretty good for Lithuanian road infrastructure, some very important projects were finished, mainly related with an infrastructure around Vilnius:
  • 2.84 km newly opened 2x3 lanes stretch of western bypass of Vilnius. After finishing mentioned 2nd stage, the whole western bypass currently forms in total 3.35 km long 2x3 lanes road. 3rd stage, the last one, will be around 6 km long 2x3 lanes road and is expected to be started around year 2015.
  • 7.6 km newly opened 2x2 lanes stretch of southern bypass of Vilnius. In total, with previous stages, which were finished few years ago, now it forms 9.5 km reconstructed 2x2 lanes road. This stretch received a road number A19. There is an uncertain date when next stages of southern bypass will be started.
  • New street in Vilnius, which connects international airport of Vilnius with inner southern city bypass (Žirnių street) of Vilnius. The street is 1.4 km, also new viaduct over a Žirnių street was built.
  • Also oficially has been opened, 2x2 expressway status road, which is Kairiai bypass on A9 road near Šiauliai. This stretch is 7 km long and with previously opened stretch forms approx 14 km long 2x2 expressway.
  • Not a 2x2, but important 6.5 km long 1x2 lanes bypass of Prekulė town was opened at the end of year on a local road no. 141.
  • Also in total 25 km long stretches were renovated on A1 motorway between Kaunas and Klaipėda.

For 2014 it is still uncertain which projects will be started. I guess we will have the information after few motnhs when exact budget will be known for a Lithuanian Roads Adminsitration and also for 2014-2020 EU funds money.

Update: Also last year was succesful regarding the safety of roads. In comparison with year 2012 there were less deadly accidents on roads. Death number decreased 14 percent from 302 in year 2012, to 260 in year 2013.

Hey guys, it's me again

I was trying to make a list of the planned road projects in Lithuania. That's what I've got. Do you think that I missed something important?
  • Construction of Southern bypass of Klaipėda
  • Construction of Palanga bypass. A project carried under public and private partnership
  • Kaunas bypass - widening of Kaunas Northern bypass (between A5 and A6), Eastern Kaunas bypass
  • Vilnius bypass - Vilnius Southern Bypass and Western Bypass completion
  • Marijampole-Kybartai (Lithuania/Rumanian border) – project of road upgrading
  • Vilnius-Lithuania/Byelorussian border – project of road upgrading
  • Via Baltica – cited reconstruction of road between Kaunas and Marijampolė

Is there any specific data about the bolded projects?

It will stop short of the Romanian border. Lithuania will do the works only as far as the Polish border.

Kybartai - Russian (Kaliningrad) border

The planned Via Carpatica is actually the main road to Romania, it will go along with Via Baltica from Kaunas to Bialystok then through Lublin, Rzeszow, Slovakia, Hungary to Oradea, Romania and further through Western Romania and Bulgaria to Thesaloniki, Greece.

I just found the map of planned route:

Was a long time without any news feed here.
There is a new bridge construction going on over Nemunas river. This bridge is a joint project of Lithuania and Kaliningrad region. It is necesarry part of a project to construct a bypass of 2 border towns Panemunė (LT) and Sovetsk (RU).

I post some pictures, which were published today in a news website www.delfi.lt so all credits goes to them

Biržai region is famous for its distinctive sinkhole landscape, created by the dissolution of the gypsum underlying its soil. The most famous and the most visited sinkhole is Karvės ola (located here: http://goo.gl/maps/O6Wz9)

Interesting changes in Lithuanian traffic code:
  • Maximum speed for expressways will be risen from 110 to 120 km/h in summer and from 100 to 110 km/h in winter. Motorway speed will remain the same
  • Motorway sign will be changed from green to blue, green destination signage will remain green. Something like in Czechia and Slovakia
  • New road signs had implied:
[IMG]http://www.************/forumas/picture.php?albumid=510&pictureid=48375[/IMG][IMG]http://www.************/forumas/picture.php?albumid=510&pictureid=48376[/IMG][IMG]http://www.************/forumas/picture.php?albumid=510&pictureid=48377[/IMG]
[IMG]http://www.************/forumas/picture.php?albumid=510&pictureid=48372[/IMG]
  • First one is completely new one and will be use to mark places to stop for SOS cases.
  • Second one is a new version of the sign for tourist destinations (old one didn't have any picture in it)
  • Third one will be used to mark speed cameras. New version
  • Fourth one is also a completely new sign in our country. We used uneven road signs instead

Nice additions to the road signs It's interesting to see that Lithuania chose the same design for the speed camera sign as Estonia (which we copied from Finland )

Latvia is also introducing new additions to road signs as of next year. Most noticeable change will be within populated areas. Similar system like in Poland or Estonia.

Speed limit after this sign remains the same:

After this sign is lowered to 50 km/h:





Also we'll have the SOS sign aswell:


And for traffic congestion:


As for the speed camera sign, welcome to the club.
