He said that Ukraine has 170,000 kilometers of roads, including
almost 9,000 kilometers of international roads, over 10,000 kilometers
of regional roads, some 52,000 kilometers of national roads with 2,731
kilometers of first category roads.
“The cost of construction of one kilometer of road in Ukraine amounts
to some UAH 40 million, and it depends on the natural obstacles being
overcome – this means the necessity to build bridges, etc – in this case
it grows considerably,” he said.
The premier said that the cost of similar construction in Poland is
almost twice as much as in Ukraine and in Germany it is 2.5 times more:
in Germany one kilometer of first category road with four lanes costs
around UAH 100 million.
