The season of roadwork started in Ukraine. It implies the inspection of constructed and repaired roads, the introduction of new control norms of the road conditions, which are being constructed and the introduction of the transport load supervision. Volodymyr Groysman said it at a special meeting on the road industry developments, as the press office of the Cabinet of Ministers reported.
“We can gradually start the roadwork. I would like to turn attention the quality of the execution of work – the current and the capital repair in particular. The order on the roads in an essential issue. The control should be provided. We spend billions of hryvnias for the construction and then the transport is overbusy and the roads are being destroyed. 50% of our transport, according to different assets, is driving with violation of tonnage rating. It should be stopped,” the PM noted.
According to Groysman, the order on the roads will be set in a week of qualitative control, and the situation will change for better in 3-5 years. Groysman offered to involve the Internal Ministry in this, meaning to apply the CCTV cameras.
“There are 78 complexes – let us set the cameras and we will do everything. I think the board of the Internal Ministry will gladly help us,” the PM said.
