Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman visited the section of Kyiv-Kharkiv-Dovzhansky route bypassing Lubny town which undergoes repair activities. It is the road of national significance. The Head of Government is paying a working visit to Poltava region today, July 2.
Volodymyr Groysman emphasized that high-quality roads entail the improvement in the quality of life of citizens, while well-thought-out and efficient logistics means transportation, access to emergency services and social life.
During 2016-2018, 6,800 km of roads were built in Ukraine. This year, the "road network" budget has grown up to UAH 56 billion, of which the sum worth UAH 14.7 billion is allocated to local roads. Moreover, besides the money, in the segment of local roads there are involved modern technologies of placement of rolled concrete of domestic production. In case of maintaining the pace of road works, repair of roads of territorial importance can be solved in three years, the Prime Minister assures. According to him, Ukraine's worst enemy is irresponsibility and populism, which destroys and hampers to create.
"I got used to build and create. We will defend every change we bring about - in education, medical industry, infrastructure development. We must focus on the growing trend in the economy", said Volodymyr Groysman. "My priorities remain steadfast."
The Head of Government noted that the Government's plan for the construction of roads of state importance and local importance with applying the cutting edge technologies of construction of concrete roads would definitely work fine.
Apart from that, according to the Head of Government, a policy of exposing corruption schemes that may arise around the road construction process should work fine as well. "I believe that every hryvnia, which we accumulate for the construction of roads, should be invested in high-quality and safe roads. While unmasking those who are trying to profit off of it is a matter of honor for the law-enforcement agencies", added the Prime Minister.
