The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved amendments to the list of motor roads that will establish a new highway connecting eastern and western Ukraine. Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced during a regular Government meeting on April 28.
"The geography of high-quality roads and new infrastructure projects is constantly expanding. Among the biggest projects this year - "Road of Unity", M-30 highway "Stryi - Izvarine", which will connect the east and west of Ukraine with a modern route, " the Prime Minister stated and added that a large-scale work is already underway at the object.
Moreover, Denys Shmyhal dwelled on the fact that the Government plays great emphasis on the improvement and renewal of railway rolling stock. Thus, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the procedure for using funds from the state budget for the renewal of rolling stock for passenger transportation and modernization of railway infrastructure.
"In fact, during the entire period of independence, no funding was allocated from the state budget for the renovation of passenger stock, therefore this project will be unprecedented. I hope that every year the number of old Soviet railroad passenger cars will be decreasing," the Prime Minister underscored.
