The Government is ready to maximally promote the implementation of large-scale road infrastructure projects that will stimulate the economic development of the regions.
The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal made this statement on March 11, during the signing of a Memorandum on the preparation of a proposal for a public-private partnership on the project of construction and operation of the highway along Krakovets-Brody-Rivne route.
According to Denys Shmyhal, such a step will allow the State Agency of Motor Roads to announce an open tender in the near future to select a private investor for the construction of the road along the appropriate route (except for the Northern bypass of Lviv).
"The use of the Public-Private Partnership mechanism will make it possible to more actively attract investment in the development of a quality road network in Ukraine. This is a continuation of the implementation of the largest and most comprehensive program of the President in the history of independence "Great Construction". The construction of roads with the involvement of a private investor will not only create new jobs and promote economic development, but it will also make roads comfortable and safe for Ukrainians in the long run," stressed the Prime Minister.
The Head of Government also expressed hope that in a few years Kyiv as the capital of Ukraine will be connected with the countries of the European Union by a modern highway of the first category.
