During the works, the existing road surface will be replaced, which is currently in poor condition and has many potholes and irregularities. During the repair of the road, a new crushed stone base layer and a 13 cm thick high-quality two-layer asphalt concrete coating will be installed.
In total, it is planned to install about 13 thousand tons of crushed stone and 11.2 thousand tons of asphalt concrete. Horizontal road markings and striped bus stops will also be updated. In more dangerous parts of the road, buses are equipped with raised intersections, which reduce driving speed and increase safety.
“The significance of a high-quality and well-developed road network is huge for both the quality of life of people and the country’s economy. According to the Lithuanian Motor Road Directorate, the road sector in Lithuania generates about 6 percent. gross domestic product.
This is a significant part, so it is important to take care of the roads and modernize them. High-quality road infrastructure allows reducing the number of traffic accidents, the economic costs of transport, and at the same time the impact on the environment. It is also important that not only the main trunk roads, but also regional and district roads, which are important for the development and vitality of the regions, receive the necessary attention”, says Kęstutis Vanagas, the head of the YIT Lietuva company.
