The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine plans to begin large-scale construction of roads from March 1, 2020.
“We understand very well what needs to be done. And next year from March 1, we plan to start a large construction. To do this, the state budget provides the necessary funds. They are not enough, but this is a necessary starting resource that we intend to use to make the country “go,” Prime Minister Alexei Goncharuk said during a broadcast on one of the TV channels.
The head of government also recalled that the Cabinet of Ministers has replaced the leadership of Ukravtodor and Ukrtransbezeki, key bodies that must ensure high quality roads. Next year, the plan for the construction and repair of 4 thousand kilometers of roads will be implemented.
“The construction of roads for us is not only a way to build a country, it is also a way to start the economy. This is one of the three economic pillars on which economic growth will continue for the next five years, ”he said.
Recall, the ex-Minister of Infrastructure Vladimir Emelyan noted that all roads in Ukraine can be repaired in 10 years. This will require 1 trillion hryvnia.
In the state budget-2018 for the repair of roads it was provided 4,000,000,000, and in 2019 – 55,100,000,000 hryvnias.
