Lithuanian road administration says, that first works in Via Baltica (road A5) between Kaunas and Marijampolė will start in the second half of April. Works will be implemented in 5 km stretch (just after Kaunas) mostly upgrading current short 2x2 to a motorway standard. In summer a tender for an upgrade of 10 km stretch near Kazlų Rūda town shall be announced. They say that whole Kaunas - Marijampolė stretch is expected to be finished until 2017.

To be exact, a little over 6 km . And by the way, I think it is worth mentioning that even though that 6 km stretch will be upgraded to motorway standard, speed limit will not be raised to 130 km/h.

Kaunas - Marijampolė motorway by 2017 ? Can you give us a source for that ?

Yeah, that 5 km will be motorway standard, but will not get motorway status after reconstruction, because the side leading to Kaunas will stay the same, with lots of entrance roads. The stretch will be motorway, when the service roads will be in both sides of the road

The good thing, that the stretch will be more safe for pedestrians.

As I know, motorway will reach Kvietiškis by then. Marijampolė-Kvietiškis will be reconstructed later.

Are you sure ? Because according to lithuanian source, which I, unfortunately, can't post here because of too few posts from me (absurd......), there will be a 12 km "hole" between Mauručiai and Pinciškės/Grigaliūnai. According to that source the order of reconstruction should look like this:

first, 17,34 km - 23,40 km strech (works will start this spring), then 35,40 km - 45,15 km (tender will be announced this summer), then 45,15 km - 56,50 km (tender is supposed to be announced early next year), and only then the reconstruction of 23,40 - 35,40 strech will start.

Seems a bit odd, but I think it's due to the fact that land acquisition process is stuck in court and reconstruction can not start in Prienai district, the 23,40 - 35,40 stretch.

45,15-56,50 km? I though that Marijampolė has most of the problems with land and the 23,40 - 35,40 will be reconstructed instead (even saw schemes of that stretch) Oh well... Eunos, post a link to the source(s), when you reach enough posts

I saw the schemes aswell, but apparently reconstruction is stuck in court. If they are planning to announce tender early next year then probably they really have less issues in Marijampolė district. Some officials talked about problems with land in Prienai district not long ago.

As I understood correctly, that means that by 2017, there will be countinous motorway stretch in Marijampolė municipality. (~20 km stretch)

Prohibiting to overtake vehicles in the remaining stretch would be good when the motorway will be finished It just some 10 km between two nice high standard dual-carriegeways +Not allowing slow vehicles to enter that stretch.

They could not allow 130 km/h on one side and stay with lower limit (110 ?) on the Kaunas direction?

Really doubt it, tender for 45,15-56,50 km strech shoud be announced early 2016, so reconstruction probably won't start before mid-2016. Can't see it being finished by 2017.

As far as I understand, by 2017, there will be two stretches finished, 17,34 km - 23,40 km and maybe, maybe 35,40 km - 45,15 km.

It was written in vz.lt newspaper on Friday. The guy who was interviewed - Algis Žvaliauskas, vice-minister of Transport and Communications. Maybe he was a bit optimistic and could say, that it will be finished in 2017, not till 2017.
He said, that first works will start in April, in summer a tender for a stretch near Kazlų Rūda will be announced, in winter and next spring tenders will be announced for remaining stretches.

Well, in that case it might be possible to finish it in 2017 or by the end of the 2017, but I still doubt it, it looks a tad too optimistic.

Some photos from A9 between Radviliškis and Šiauliai, which was reconstructed between 2009 and 2013.

2014 04 20.

So, here we go.



Turbo-roundabout in front. By the way, this specific turbo-roundabout is the first turbo-roundabout built in Lithuania back in 2011.
