In the framework of the working visit to Zaporizhia region Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced to journalists the Government is ready to allocate an annual state support to the tune of UAH 500 million UAH for the completion of construction of bridge crossing across the Dnipro River in Zaporizhia. "We can include this project into the priority list and grant state support in the amount of UAH 500 million on an annual basis to finalize it", said Volodymyr Groysman.
The Prime Minister expressed hope that the regional state administration, the regional council, the municipal council, the mayor will prolong "a good tradition" and co-finance completion of the construction of bridges. The local authorities possess the resource due to financial decentralization, he urged.
He said that throughout three years it is possible to ensure technological, technical and financial support and finalize the project, and promised full support of the Government.
The Head of the Government noted that discussions about the need to erect bridges across the Dnipro river in Zaporizhia had been held for 10 years, but the object hadn’t been constructed yet.
He explained that after the "parliamentary lobby" had raised an issue of state support for such construction, the Government had allotted over UAH 200 million in order to unlock the process of financing the construction of bridges.
Moreover, at the session of the Government there was unlocked customs clearance for metal structures that had been blocked for three years, said the Prime Minister.
In the framework of his working visit to Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhia regions, the Head of Government got acquainted with the construction of bridges over the Dnipro to Khortytsia island.
