The Great Construction program, which includes road construction, has gained special importance in the context of the recovery of Ukraine's economy, which was affected due to quarantine restriction measures and the global crisis, and the Government engages in active implementation of this program.
The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal stated at a press conference on the occasion of 100 days of the Government’s activities.
According to the Head of Government, the Great Construction program was initiated and is supervised directly by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and is of topmost importance for him. "The Government is expanding this program, we have even managed to increase the amount of funding in the budget for the road construction program when establishing the COVID-19 Response Fund," said Denys Shmyhal.
The Prime Minister announced that more than UAH 100 billion would be allocated for the road network construction program this year. "And what is also important - for the first time the work on tenders began and the construction of roads commenced in April-May. As a rule, the construction and repair activities began in June-July, or even in September-October," the Prime Minister stressed.
"Now road construction companies have the opportunity to build roads throughout the warm season, and we believe that in the fall, Ukrainians will see the results of this program," said Denys Shmyhal.
