Good news, now it will be Vilnius Klaipeda motorway. Not that big expenses to finish the job.

Does it also include the dual carriageway between Vievis and Vilnius that's not even an expressway at the moment?

Construction of additional sections like the Kaunas bypass will also be required, right?

Vilnius - Vievis is partly an expressway. Expressway starts just few kilometers after Grigiškės town. Don't know why Google maps show this stretch like usual dual carriageway. And yes - works will include this stretch.

Kaunas bypass reconstruction is a separate project which probably will start no sooner than 2017-2018.

That's the eastern (really south-eastern) bypass of Kaunas, just in case it's not clear for some readers.

Great video from company Kauno tiltai together with Lithuanian Roads Administration about ongoing works on A5 Via Baltica road between Garliava and Mauručiai. 2x2 road is going to be reconstructed to meet motorway standard, also new bridge over railway is being built. At the beginning of a video past situation is shown.


Also another good video about demolishing old bridge over Nemunas river in Kaunas city and building a new one

Thank you for the video. OSM updates are very rare and unclear in the Baltics. Nothing you can rely on. Often things remain unclear until opening and final update.... Is there a map or scheme published by road authority?

I guess its this place?

https://www.google.de/maps/@54.863087,23.9532036,16.26z

When i went to Latvia (someplace near to Jekabpils) i took the eastern "ring" road (139) of Kaunas. I thought it needed a bit of renovation and was not well used. One Truck i overtook before used the western motorway ring. Afterwards it was before me again when i left Ramuciai. So I now know, that its no use to use it

Now i saw a plan to bulid a bypass of this village Ramuciai. Will there be also some renovation and maybe additional impürovement of Road 139?

Thank you.

You are right about a bridge in Kaunas - it is called Panemunės bridge.

About reconstruction on Via Baltica road - I have found few pics about a construction of new viaduct, however can't find now info about further works






By the way - what you mean by saying OSM updates? (OSM particularly)

I mean that you need people to sustain and update its information. And not everywhere this work is done.

In Pakistan a motorway is not yet updated which opend some days ago. In germany this update is done usually at the same day, even at B-roads. I contribute to OSM ocaaionally. At bigger projects usually someone is faster than you.

Sometimes a road is painted in not before it openes. Sometimes you have it inside while its U/C or even planned. But often Interchanges are missing, or smaller details. So you just know something is going on, but not exactly what they are doing. In Poland often you see every connecting road, occur there early, every bridge or underpass, if there are roundabouts or other types of crossroads, even maintenance ways etc. In germany often you can see also temporary roads which are there only for construction time.

In the Baltics thats not the case. And as you also usually don't get project information here, its impossible to fill up this gap. If you have information from different sources its nice, if you have just one source its enough. But here its often more like rumors

And do you know something about the planning of the Kaunas eastern bypass?

TY

It is amusing how "outdated", "old" and "substandard" rural American freeway (e.g. narrow left shoulder, narrow median) matches so well "state of the art", "excellent" new Lithuanian motorway

That's not "old" or "substandard", it's just in the middle of bum**** nowhere. About halfway between St. Louis and Columbia, MO.

Rural Lithuania looks a lot like the rural Midwest or perhaps the Delmarva Peninsula IMO.

The triple fencing seems excessive (or having fences there at all, for that matter).

Edit: It's a border crossing, my bad!

Thanks for the update Ripley. Reason for a bridge over a field - those fields are usually flooded in spring. And as Rebasepoiss said - fencing is due to a border crossing.

There wasn't much activity recently regarding cold weather in January. Now they started to continue works. Ramps for a overpass in western bypass of Vilnius are being built
