Correction: The Motorway (route 23) with gravel shoulder in the picture is NOT a new road. It is an existing expressroad that was re-designated as a motorway. All newly constructed motorways in Denmark has paved shoulders.

This road looks like it doesn't have shoulder at all.

As long as it's wide enough & mass resistant to stop a vehicle without interfering traffic flow, it's ok.

Since there is some movement in this thread, I would like to update the status of some big projects, that hopefully and finally will start this year in Rīga. These are not new objects, as they have been mentioned several times in this thread since I joined the forum.

New viaduct in Sarkandaugava district.

It is part of the Eastern bypass project. Construction is expected to start in September. Tender for works has already been announced.







New access road to the port of Rīga.

Construction tender has been announced. Works might start this year.

Missing link for the Eastern bypass.

Construction is expected to start in September. Tender for works has already been announced.



Last but not least. Southern bridge project final stage.

Construction is expected to start in September. Tender for works has already been announced.

Interesting discovery was made by our forumer makaveli6; in the image below you can see the Ķekava bypass alignment. Construction of our first real expressway is planned to start in the end of 2020.

Photos from yesterday - reconstruction of the A10 from Rīga to Jūrmala.

Latvians are very poor at organizing traffic flow on such high volume roads (or in general for this matter). There is no physical barrier between directions and there have been reports that drivers ignore the yellow markings and overtake traffic in the opposite direction. Numerous flaws in markings can be seen in these photos as well.

Rīga-Dalbe was finished in 1980, I think Rīga-Ogre was built in 60s, but I might be wrong.

I got some data about building date of these dual carriageways but I'm not sure whether the data is correct:
Riga - Jelgava - 1981 (Makaveli says something similar);
Riga - Ogre - could be 1962 or so. Approx. 10 years later there were some repair works for both carriageways. Probably they wouldn't be done for a new road so the build date could be more or less correct.
Riga - Sigulda - 1976.
