Nice video, Pansori!

Some news:
1) Contract was signed with company "Fegda" to build two 2 level junctions in Vilnius-Kaunas stretch
Schemes for works:




2) Tender for a construction works of 2x2 motorway on A5 road between Kaunas and Marijampolė was published (stretch between 35,40 and 45,15 km). Deadline for offers is 31st of August. Let's hope there will be no legal processes after it and works will start in autumn. We can't wait for motorway construction to be back to Lithuania.

Are there plans to complete Ozo gatve at the same time?

Šiaurinė gatvė is more important project, I think. It should reach Justiniškių gatvė by 2020.

Ozo gatvė will not be completed in foreseenable future as it was planned in Soviet times

Let's hope that the stretch between Garliava and Mauručiai will start next year (or even sooner)

I think it will technically be a motorway or expressway. It will feature 2 carriageways with each minimum 2 lanes and it will be grade-separated, won't it?

Certainly so. It's an urban expressway. Only that in Lithuania the term 'urban expressway' isn't really used officially. The literal translation would be 'fast traffic street' (greitojo eismo gatvė). The speed restriction is 80km/h.

Works in Garliava-Mauručiai will start soon (Lithuanian)
Text says that Lithuanian road administration and AB „Kauno tiltai“ signed the contract for starting the reconstruction to motorway standards for this stretch. Works will be finished in 9 months instead of 24. New pedestrian overpasses will be built near Stanaičiai and Juragiai.

Waiting for 2nd carriegeway construction between Mauručiai and Marijampolė

Motorway status for Garliava-Mauručiai will be granted when the second carriegeway will be reconstructed. It is unknown, when the construction will start, maybe after when the while A5 road will be reconstructed to motorway. In 2020s at earliest.

Another grade-seperated dual-carriegeway project is going on Klaipėda Southern bypass, expressway that will connect Port of Klaipėda and road 141. 141 will be reconstructed itself to expressway Lithuanian source: http://www.ve.lt/naujienos/klaipeda1...eliui-1392314/

Is there an estimated year of completion for upgrading the A5 to motorway standards between Mauručiai and Marijampolė?

I read somewhere that pedestrians and bycycles are forbidden from that class of streets.

Last section near Puskelniai will be completed in early 2020s, I guess. Problems with private land But other sections should be finnished by 2018-2020, most land near the other stretches already belongs to the state

  • 2 new pedestrian bridges
  • Viaduct over the railway
  • 1 tunnel underpass
  • Noise barriers and lighting in few stretches

10,81 km of A11 has been reconstructed between Šiauliai and Kuršėnai.

Map. Photos taken on August 29.



Everything is finished, now all that needs to be done is to remove "50 km/h" signs and to turn the traffic lights on. I have to mention that AADT on this particular stretch is about 11k. A9 between Radviliškis and Šiauliai has an AADT of about 8k and it is a full on expressway, but this stretch is just a simple I-category road with speed limit of 90 km/h, and speed limit of 70 km/h in the vicinity of traffic lights.

Towards Kuršėnai. Here traffic lights are yet to be turned on.





Sensor of some sort
