    In the Zhytomyr region, traffic was opened on a temporary crossing over the Irsha River, not far from Ukrainka, on the M-07 Kyiv-Kovel-Yagodyn highway. The main bridge had been damaged by an airstrike by the russian occupiers, and traffic had been closed. This was announced by Minister of Infrastructure Olexandr Kubrakov.

    "A temporary crossing was arranged for the safe passage of transport. Construction lasted for about three weeks. During this time, specialists carried out excavation work, arranged the rubble base, concreted the slab and transition bays, installed appropriate road signs," he told.

    According to the Minister, the damaged bridge will be inspected by specialists, after which decisions will be made on its further restoration.

    As a result of hostilities on the M-07 highway in the Kyiv region, three man-made structures were destroyed, and in the Zhytomyr region - one. To date, traffic for vehicles is provided for all destroyed constructions in two areas.

    Due to temporary crossings we have the possibility of direct transport along the route Kyiv - Kovel.
