Road construction in Ukraine is proceeding at a tremendous pace. Almost daily, new sections open in different areas of the country, step by step bringing the roads of national and international importance to European standards. This year, Ukravtodor is to restore 4,000 km of roads. Plans for next year are even colossal.
During a visit to the Volyn region, Vladimir Zelensky said that according to the plan in 2021, the number of repaired roads should double in comparison with this year. Speaking in numbers, it is 8-9 thousand kilometers. According to him, this is quite real, even at this pace.
In addition, the President of Ukraine said that he would like to see the same activity on regional roads, which are being repaired from local budgets. After all, the concept of “tailoring Ukraine with quality roads” means not only repairing roads of national and international importance. In order to change the situation, he intends to transfer all roads to the balance of Ukravtodor within a few years.
“Yes, the transfer of local roads is contrary to the decentralization policy, but it will not work in a different way. After all, local authorities are passive in road repair, and Ukravtodor is able to rectify the situation and we can close the road issue for at least ten years, ”Zelensky said.
