As Kava said, there are 17000 bridges in the country in total. 9000 of them require a major repair.
4500 of the bridges require an urgent shut-down and repair.
“And the transit across them, honestly, has to be blocked,” Kava stated.
Earlier, Oleksandr Kava said that the major repair of all the Ukrainian roads requires around $76 billion.
Earlier, Volodymyr Groysman said that the plan to fund the road sector amounts to $1.74 billion. Works will be carried out at 218 facilities. Almost 60% of blueprints have been designed. The updated construction standard has been issued, and it must become the go-to book for road services.
Concession road projects are being prepared synchronously. One of them could be the Krakovets – Lviv road. Ukravtodor said there is significant interest in the project from investors.
The Prime Minister also pointed to the fact that due to weather conditions, it is not possible to begin road works yet, but the works are expected to kick-off very quickly as soon as the weather changes.
“We will begin repairing works in April. We need to deal with all the contractors, with all the services to have them ready,” Groysman said.
