Lithuania plans road network revamp
A new plan by the Lithuanian Road Administration (LAKD) has been set out in a bid to revamp the nation’s roads. The plan will run until 2035 and includes rebuilding 400km of the country’s worst roads as a priority and unsurfaced roads will benefit from asphalt surfaces in a plan worth €1 billion. The Via Baltica route running from the Latvian border to the Polish border will be rebuilt in eight stages and is expected to cost €684 million. Improvements will also be carried out connecting capital Vilnius with Kaunas and Utena ata cost of €350 million. Other improvements include €340 million to be spend on rebuilding bridges that are no longer fit for purpose and €232 million for new pedestrian crossings.
