Construction of Ukraine’s first 10 ‘autobahns’ could start this fall
Construction of Ukraine’s first 10 ‘autobahns’ could start this fall, providing the Rada passes the public private partnership law, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan said Thursday at the Ukrainian Ports Forum in Odesa. “Our vision is 10 autobahns that will connect the whole of Ukraine,” he said. “They must be built on the concession principle of toll roads.” The first candidate is a heavily trafficked 70 km highway between Lviv and Krakovets, on the border with Poland. The second will be Kyiv-Bila Tservka, the first 90 km on the north-south highway to Odesa.
