Great news - another contract signed for Via Baltica segment between Kaunas and Marijampolė!

It's the contract for reconstructing a 12 km segment between 23.4 - 35.4 km to 2x2 motorway standard road. Estimate for a project is 36.9 mEUR, deadline - November 2018.

Currently another segment between 45.15 - 56.83 km is under construction. Segment between 35.4 - 45.15 was finished on September.

This means, that by the end of 2018 whole Kaunas - Marijampolė segment will be 2x2 road, from which 33.4 km will be a motorway standard road.

More planned grade-separated sections (apart from Kaunas-PL border), most of them will be Category I roads with maximum speed 120 km/h:
  • Vilnius:
    • Galvės g. - Trakai (Category I road)
    • Grigiškės - Savanorių pr./Galvės g. junction (?). Planned as expresway (120 km/h) near Grigiškės. Have characteristics of good expresway up to Vilnius. Slip roads reconstruction is planned.

  • Kaunas:
    • New road, connecting A1, with A6 from Petrašiūnai junction to Ramučiai/Karmėlava. New industrial/commercial zone is developing nearby. It's called the Free Economic Zone of Kaunas
    • (proposed) New bypass of Kaunas. New route will go through vicinity of Biruliškės, Lapės, Domeikava and Žemaitkiemis (Giraitė).
    • Upgrading current 2x2 road (Islandijos plentas) to 2x3 expressway standards. Upgrading A1 section near Giraitė to motorway (130 km/h) standards, keeping the same profile.

  • Klaipėda:
    • Reconstruction of current 2+2 road to Palanga, between roads 168 and 2253. Planned as expressway. Might get expressway status up to junction A11 near Palanga. Section between 2253 and A11 has most needed characteristics for a good expressway. Only minor improvements are needed.
    • Klaipėda Eastern Bypass (reconstruction of current 141 to Category I (expressway) standards)
    • Klaipėda Southern Bypass - new road south of Klaipėda with expressway standards.
    Better connectivity with Klaipėda suburbs and the seaport is needed.

  • Šiauliai (region):
    • Extension of expressway Šiauliai - Radviliškis up to Šeduva (junction with 144 road).
    • A18 road (Northeastern bypass of Šiauliai, stretch between A9 and A12). Planned as Category II road (profile 1+1), but will have grade-seperated junctions only.

I have found my post about 2017 and decided to check if all mentioned important projects came into life. Below in bold I have marked my comments:

  • A tender for 2x2 motorway construction works in A5 road Kaunas-Marijampolė shall be announced. Segment from 45,15 iki 56,83 km. DONE
  • Works shall start on A17 road, bypass of Panevėžys, segment from 0 to 10,53 km. ~2 km segment will be reconstructed from single to dual carriageway, the rest to 2+1 configuration road. WORKS IN PROGRESS
  • On September construction works on A1 road Vilnius-Kaunas in Grigiškės town shall be finished. This will also mean, that the last 1 level U-turn in Vilnius-Kaunas segment will be removed and the road safety will meet high standards.
  • I believe more news about other works will come in Q1 2017. FINISHED IN NOVEMBER
Have a great New Years Eve guys! Was pleasure to communicate with you in 2016 and hope more great projects and pictures to be discussed in 2017
Whats more - contract signed for VIA Baltica Kaunas -Marijampolė for reconstructing a 12 km segment between 23.4 - 35.4 km to 2x2 motorway standard road.

There are still no articles from Lithuanian road administration about main projects for 2018, but it is known, that main projects are:
- Finishing A5 Via Baltica reconstruction between Kaunas and Marijampole to have full segment of 2x2 road, from which 33 km will be motorway standard road.
- Finishing first segment on Via Baltica Panevezys bypass reconstruction from 1x1 to 2+1 road and starting the second part reconstruction also to 2+1.

Let's hope we will hear more updates about preparation works for reconstructing Via Baltica segment Marijampole - Lithuania/Polish border to 2x2 motorway. Also A14 road 5 km segment reconstruction to 2x2, 2x2 expressway reconstruction on A9 road From Šeduva to Radviliškis.

So have a nice 2018 everyone!

VILNIUS

There are actual plans to expand current road section of Galvės gatvė to 2+2 profile. Plan covers about half of the planned Vilnius-Trakai expressway. Route: https://goo.gl/maps/qZqXMgpFLQH2
Good news that 2+2 is planned up to junction with Savanorių pr.

Although there is no text announcement about planned works in Lithuanian roads on 2018 yet, LAKD published a map of road sections where works will take place https://gis.eismoinfo.lt/webappbuilder/apps/19/

As this map has Lithuanian version only, I will mention the most important works:

A1: Reconstruction of slip roads on the section Kaunas - Vilnius. Acceleration/deceleration lanes are too short for safe 130 km/h traffic and needs reconstruction. Remaining one-level pedestrian crossings will be abolished. Most of the bus stations will be separated from main traffic flow. Electronic variable speed limit signage is also planned.

A2: Implementation of electronic speed limit signs near U-turns. All U-turns in this road will be monitored, that if vehicle is taking an U-turn, speed for main traffic will be reduced by e.g. 20 km/h. Some U-turns near Panevėžys already have this kind of system.

A4: Reconstruction of three-way intersection near Druskininkai to roundabout

A5: Motorway construction of remaining sections between Kaunas and Marijampolė Works between Mauručiai and Gudeliai should start this year Works in Marijampolė region already takes place

A11: Reconstruction of Kretingos gatvė in Palanga This street is the main street that is used for entrance to seaside resort Palanga

A17: Reconstruction of road profile to 2+1. Finnishing the works between roads A8 and A9 (southern section). Starting the works between A9 and A10 (northern section)
