This year there will be purchased 70 mobile weighing systems for checking cargo carriers and preventing the destruction of the Ukrainian roads. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said during the inspection of construction activities on main highways in Cherkasy, Kirovograd and Poltava regions on Tuesday.
"The objective for the Ministry of Infrastructure is to buy this year 70 such weighting complexes. Therefore, there are carried out certain procurement procedures. This will enable starting next year to apply such monitoring procedure all around the country", said Volodymyr Groysman.
