High speed rail service connecting Kyiv and Odesa and Kyiv and Lviv would cost $16 billion and take at least a decade to implement

High speed rail service connecting Kyiv and Odesa and Kyiv and Lviv would cost $16 billion and take at least a decade to implement, Anton Sabolevsky, Ukrzaliznytsia director for strategic development and investment policy, tells Interfax-Ukraine. At present Kyiv trains to Odesa pass through Vinnytsia, making for seven hour train rides. Fast trains traveling at up to 250 km an hour on a direct route would take two hours.
