The bridge over the Siverskyi Donets in Kharkiv region could take 11 tons loads, now after the turnaround maintenance it takes 30 tons. The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that during the ceremony of the infrastructural facility opening.
“How much did it cost to build this beautiful bridge? To perform the turnaround maintenance? Do you see it’s condition? How many tons it could take before? 11 tons? Today it’s 30! In fact this is a new bridge. A man used to watch his step while on this bridge, it’s was risky to let the truck through the bridge. Today 30 tons are welcome!. Where the expenditures were financed from? 500 thousand dollars – from the state budget for the roadbuilding, another 270 thousand - at the expense of the customs experiment (the costs that were not allowed to be stolen at the Customs, which were directed for the roadbuilding). Another 75 thousand – from the local budget,” Poroshenko said.
He also told about his decision to place the road Kharkiv – Izyum – Slavyansk within the Ukraine’s top priorities.
“Another priority – roadbuilding. The presidential draft law on building of this road is among these priorities. The road has to be ready this year,” Poroshenko noted.
“Minister Omelyan can confirm, that every square meter of this road has warranty and in case anything happens the producer shall come and reconstruct it at his own expense,” the head of the state said.
