Vilnius-Trakai (A16/E28) is bound to get 2 more lanes + bike paths (source: Radio Znad Wilii)

An average of 16,500 vehicles/day drive through that road (1,200 of which are trucks). That is 3x more than overall on the Vilnius-Prienai-Marijampolė road. Both on weekdays & on weekends. An intensive traffic of vehicles driving at different speeds makes the accident rate very high.
It will be a contract between 3 parties: the Vilnius city council, the Trakai town council and Lietuvos Automobilių Kelių direkcija's Institute called "Kelių ir transporto tyrimų institutas". The project will be made during the next couple of months.
It is high time! Znad Wilii forgot to mention also the numerous collisions with mooses ...
EDIT: forgot to mention a bike path will be built at the same time So no more fear when riding between Trakai and Vilnius as numerous people do during spring and summer

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

EDIT: forgot to add that the speed limit will be raised to 90km/h from the current 80km/h limit. (source: zw.lt for those who read in Polish). The 20km/h zone within the Vilnius Old Town will be extended at the same time.

Pity! I thought I'd drive through and I would share my movie with you guys, but at that time I'll be in France ... Someone else will need to do that!

How come it has been delayed?

It's not really delayed. There wans't a set date when it was doing to be opened, just a preliminary one - end of the year. Besides, it was already delayed by a court case back in 2015. Construction was supposed to start back in 2015 spring, but it was delayed till the end of summer. That's why they are opening at the begging of winter.

Vilnius western bypass 10 days before openning.







Are they going to be able to finish this in 10 days ? I am not optimistic...

[Two last pictures of last post. I realized that I shouldn't quote them in a page that already has way too many.]
Why have they left room on one side? Future local traffic lanes?
