Latvia's Need for Resurfacing
The streets and roads of the towns and villages of Latvia are in dire need of maintainance and repair. Many of them are completely unmade while others have numerous cracks and pot-holes. The infrastructure is generally old and creaky, the trams still running after years of service going way back into the Soviet era, and the featureless buildings are ripe for reinstatement or demolition. Latvia needs a massive amount of funds injected into its shaky economy and there is no Barnett Formula here.
