Thanks M1gdas from ************ forum for pictures



Been recently to take my first 2016 lake-bath. Between Pašilaičiai and Gineitiškės, they are working hard on making the bridge

Thats great. I heard before about that new bridge over the railway. But is really the whole part between Mariampole and Kaunas already under construction? And is the proposed opening date in 2017 valid for everything? The terrain is flat, so not much earthworks are necessary. But i suppose a lot of other bridges or underpasses needs to be built, since almost all crossings were plain until now.

Not whole part of Marijampole - Kaunas is underconstruction. Currently works are going on ~15 km part. Tenders for remaining 23 km are supposed to be announced this year. According last interviews with Lithuanian roads administration all works for whole Marijampole - Kaunas part should be finished by the end of 2018.

Are there any plans of building of Marijampole-border with Poland?
At the Polish side expressway S61 will be ready about 2020 (now there are bids for this road).

Some autumn updates from Lithuanian roads, 2 main projects: Via Baltica road and Western bypass of Vilnius.

1) Via Baltica road (road no. A5) between Garliava and Mauručiai. Credits to all photos go to Miningan from ************/forum.

The right part of a dual carriageway (if you go towards Marijampolė)was reconstructed - asphalt was repaved, fe pedetrian bridges were installed and there were before no connecting roads for a local traffic.
Picture direction - towards Marijampolė/Polish border


View back, towards Kaunas. You can easily spot, that only one side of road was reconstructed


Towards Marijampolė/Polish border. Polish style noise barriers




Hope, that the right side of road (in this pic) will be reconstructed in near future - many driveways, which shouldn't be on such road. View towards Kaunas


On the left - a new viaduct, which was built during a project. The traffic is still not allowed here, probably it should be released in few weeks


View towards Marijampolė/Polish border. You can see the end of works there


And backwards, direction Kaunas

2) Western bypass of Vilnius
Awesome photos were posted yesterday and credits go to VilniusFromVilnius (from ************/forum)
Junction with A2 road



Southbound direction






On the right you can see how they installed natural sound barriers by building a hill

That's very good progress considering the construction started only a little over a year ago.

The European commission has just confirm the last section of the Vilnius Western bypass's financing. 84 million EUR from the Cohesion fund for a total cost of 94 million EUR. Let's hope a big part of the South-North traffic will go through the bypass as it happened when its Southern part opened
(article from the Polish-speaking radio Znad Wilii's website)

Quote:
Komisja Europejska potwierdziła dofinansowanie zachodniej obwodnicy
Komisja Europejska potwierdziła dofinansowanie dla budowy III etapu zachodniej obwodnicy Wilna. Koszt inwestycji to 94 miliony euro, z czego ponad 84 mln stanowi wsparcie unijne z Funduszu Spójności na lata 2014-2020.


Zatwierdzona do dofinansowania inwestycja obejmuje budowę odcinka o długości 5 kilometrów 380 metrów m od ulicy Ozo do ulicy Ukmergės. Inwestycja przyczyni się do polepszenia warunków ruchu drogowego wokół stolicy, zarówno pod względem bezpieczeństwa, jak i czasu przejazdu.

Budowa zachodniej obwodnicy Wilna ma być sfinalizowana przed końcem tego roku.

It will be a complete game changer for the traffic conditions in Vilnius. Not only for bypassing the city for transit traffic but also for getting around the city. For instance getting from northern residential districts to the Airport will now take around 7-10 minutes regardless of traffic in the other parts of the city.

First camera is waiting for speeders on Vilnius Western Bypass

Also the construction of new intersection on A1 expressway between Vilnius and Kaunas, near Žiežmariai town is almost complete. New pedestrian bridge and underpass for cars was built, this way removing a dangerous 1 level U-turn.
Pictures taken by me on 16/10/2016, direction - Vilnius

No wonder they're installing a speed camera even before traffic behavior is known. They know the speed limit is way too low for such a good road. 100 - 110 km/h would be more appropriate...

On July this year reconstructed 5 km segment on Vilnius - Nemenčinė road (road no. 102) has been opened. Segment goes from Miškonys village to Neris river near Nemenčinė town. Single carriageway was reconstructed to a safer dual carriageway, however junctions were not grade separated, therefore traffic lights were installed on some of them. This segment has ~9700 AADT.
Photos have been taken ken by me today: (direction - Vilnius)








This is how it looked before. Google Street View picture:

Good road, they could at least have installed electronic signs and monitor speed depending from weather or traffic.

Since Molūvėnai and Žiežmariai junctions are almost finnished, there are some more works to do in Kaunas-Vilnius to make the road to meet the safety levels for 130 km/h road.

Most important works to do:
1) Reconstruction of acceleration and deceleration lanes to make them 250 m long where possible (no high slopes or viaducts without hard shoulders on the way)
2) motor & pedestrian underpass near Strošiūnai, pedestrian underpasses near Jakštonys, Skirmantiškės and Gariūnai. Bus stops will be seperated from main road. Bus stops near Vilnius (Gariūnai and Dėdeliškės) are planned to be demolished.

3) More works near Žiežmariai: reconstruction of Kaišiadorys junction, to make safe acceleration and deccelaration lanes toward Vilnius.
  • Red - new slip roads.
  • Blue - slip roads to be demolished.

4) Reconstruction of Petrašiūnai junction. Pedestrian overpass is planned near the bus stop.
  • Thin dark red - new slip roads
  • Other colors - other information: municipal boundary (thick black), land lots (green, yellow, cyan), boundary of the territory where works will be involved (thick red).
