The Lithuanian Road Administration under the Ministry of Transport and Communications (the Road Administration) has started planning of the state road pedestrian and bicycle lane network.

According to the Director of the Lithuanian Road Administration Vitalijus Andrejevas, currently, the infrastructure is managed by the Road Administration, municipalities and in certain cases by private physical and legal entities.

To use the funds of the Road Maintenance and Development Programme effectively, comprehensive information about pedestrian and bicycle lane infrastructure at the state road network shall be collected.
