The draft budget for 2019 includes expenses for the network development and maintenance of public roads in the amount of $460 million. The draft budget for 2019 introduced in the Ukrainian Parliament provides these funds.
It should be noted that the financing under the budget program “Network development and maintenance of public roads” would be implemented by the State budget.
Moreover, 2019 draft budget provides subvention from the State budget to the local budgets for the financial support for building, reconstruction, repairs, and maintenance of public roads of local importance, streets and the communal roads in localities in the amount of $605 million.
$2 million is planned to spend for executive direction and management in the area of building, repairs, and maintenance of roads.
The Ministry of Regional Development, Building, and Housing of Ukraine introduced amendments in State building codes, concerning narrowing of a width of strips on roads in cities. It is believed that it would increase the safeness of the traffic, decrease traffic jams and will allow providing paths for bicycles.
