In 2020 the number of repaired roads can be increased twofold against the planned amount. To this end, the Parliament should pass two bills that will allow to raise additional funding to the tune of UAH 20 billion under state guarantees.
"Today a sum worth UAH 31.5 billion is envisaged for repair and construction of roads. We have found an opportunity to significantly increase the budget of the Road Fund. This will allow to repair twice more roads next year," Head of State Agency for Motor Roads of Ukraine (Ukravtodor) Olexandr Kubrakov said.
According to him, two bills "On Amendments to the Budget Code of Ukraine" (No. 2661) and "On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine on the State Budget of Ukraine for 2020" (No. 2660) have already been registered in the Parliament.
The adoption of these bills by the Parliament will allow Ukravtodor to raise additional funding to the tune of UAH 20 billion under state guarantees
