An overpass should cost between 1 and 2 million euro. A lot?

So 3 would cost around 6 EURm. Does not seem to be lots of money, but they are now more useful in Via Baltica project

With EU fundings such money is not a problem. Problem is that we have land salesment issue. Land salesments are expensive and need a lot amount of time Kaunas - Marijampolė could be a motorway today if the land salesments could went faster.

Will the road feature 2 carriageways with each 2 lanes after completion? Will there be a median or minimum crash barrier in-between?

If yes, it'd like to add it to my list (like Mauruciai – Garliava)....

2 carriegeways with 2 lanes and a guard rail inbetween and speed limit 120 km/h, like general S-road in Poland

Lenght: 4.58 km. Construction will begin in 2016 at earliest (2017 more likely) and would last for two years.

Klaipėda region should construct 12 km of expressways by 2020 (Jakai-Dumpiai-Taikos pr. (Klaipėda)) And 13.3 km of expressways after 2020 (Kalotė-Vydmantai)

To sum up, Klaipėda region will have aprox. 25 km of new expressways.

4.58km b/n Taikos pr. and Dumpiai plus upgrade of road 141 b/n Jakai and Dumpiai (7.5km)? Can you show me start and end location? Will it just get a 2nd c/w or will the existing one be "relocated".

Will it get an A number?

A track of the planned road is visible from Google Satelite

The existing 1+1 road from Jakai to Rimkai interchange will be widened to 2x2, grade-separated, access-controlled. To be honest, I didn't saw any projects about the stretch between Rimkai interchange and future Dumpiai interchange, I guess that turboroundabouts are possible. Turboroundabouts allows expressway status (that means that the road is not grade-separated anymore?

I don't heard any plans, but it should get A-road status as is important transit road for trucks. Maybe whole section between Jakai and Taikos pr. will get one A-road number, possibly A21.

Source (Lithuanian): http://kaunas.kasvyksta.lt/2015/09/2...usu-marsrutus/
Site: Petrašiūnai interchange http://wikimapia.org/#lang=lt&lat=54...24.052312&z=16

Looks like another big project will be going on after Žiežmariai and Molūvėnai in this substandard expressway between Kaunas and Vilnius

Due to growing bussinesses in nearby area, this junction will be reconstructed It will be made a full cloverleaf interchange, with collector-distributor lanes. Residential area of Martinava will have it's own underpass (as I understand correctly what the article and the picture above the article wants to say )

The planned Southeastern urban-expressway bypass of Kaunas will start/end here

There will be just three places left where the speed will be restricted due to the potential pedestrian traffic. Those places currently are most substandard ones: near Jakštonys, Strošiūnai and Skirmantiškės. Reconstruction of those stretches near those localities will make Kaunas-Vilnius much more like Kaunas-Klaipėda

Btw, there are actual plans to make Kaunas-Vilnius an automagistralė (motorway) with speed limit 130 km/h (or even 140 km/h)

1) A contract was signed on 1st October for 5,6 km stretch of road no. 102 between Vilnius city and Nemenčinė town. Below is a map for this segment. The road will be reconstructed from 1x2 to 2x2 road, but no expressway standard. Cost are EUR 12.7m, duration of a contract 7 months (I would say that is really quick considering winter is not far away).



2) Some good pictures of Vilnius western bypass construction site.

Xmaster thank you for info about new projects. Is that map correct? If I look at the map, I would expect widening to 2x2 on segment from Antakalnis to Miškonys, to prolong the existing 2x2. I can´t see any logic to make a short 1x2 gap between two 2x2 segments.

It is correct. The gap will exist for some years. Probably acquiring of land there is more difficult than in a stretch, which is going to be reconstructed now.

The 1x2 section of Road 102 has heavy traffic in both directions at some times of day, with long queues of cars backed up behind trucks and few opportunities to safely overtake. When the new 2x2 section will be completed, hopefully drivers will have patience during the short remaining section of 1x2 road.

From Nemencine to Pabrade, the traffic is much lighter.

Well, Ia category road (this stretch after reconstruction) is a road with expressway characteristics, but has no expressway status, due the speed limit 90 km/h

Each segments will be funded by different institutions. Current segment is funded by Lithuanian Road Administration, while the remaining gap will be funded by Vilnius City Municipality, which has to finnish other important projects in the city instead and due the financial problems

Kaunas-Vilnius will be rededicated to motorway

Source (Lithuanian): http://kaunas.kasvyksta.lt/2015/10/1...utomagistrale/

Article says:
It is planned that Kaunas-Vilnius expressway will become a full standard automagistralė (motorway), with maximum speed 130 km/h. Redidication project should cost about 35-40 mln euros, some of the price will be funded by EU. Project will include new pedestrian over/underpasses, acceleration/deceleration lanes after reconstruction will be longer, new lighting will be implied.

Electronic signage will also be implied. The aim is to make both in winter and summer, under the good conditions, the speed limit 130 km/h. If driving conditions are bad, the speed limit will be reduced. Drivers will also be warned for traffic accidents, congestions, works, etc.
