29.11.2013 18:10Belta
A dedication ceremony of the 11-kilometer-long part of the Vilnius-Minsk highway will be held on 29 November to mark the completion of its major makeover six months ahead of schedule
According to the Lithuanian Road Administration, the traffic way on this part of the road (from 21.86km to 32.91km) was increased from seven to nine meters. The extensive reconstruction took into account all the peculiarities of the highway, which is used by heavy haulers towards the Belarusian border and back. The daily traffic makes up 3,500 vehicles. The reconstructed part of the highway now boasts higher safety, better ecological standards, improved engineering networks, pedestrian crossings, communication and melioration systems.

The reconstruction was due to be finished by March 2014. The Heads of Eurovia Lietuva and Lemminkainen Lietuva, the companies involved in the project, said that good weather and considerable experience in construction contributed to the early completion of the project.
