Infrastructure Minister Omelian: Construction of toll roads to begin in 2019

Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Omelian says that the construction of pilot concession roads will begin in 2019.

“We hope that pilot roads will be the Lviv-Krakovets and Kyiv-Uman concession roads, which will be a part of the autobahn that will connect the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea, the so-called ‘Go Highway’ from Gdansk to Odesa. But I remind you that concession roads will be built simultaneously with the existing free roads. Everyone will have a choice: either travel longer along a not very convenient road, or choose a European motorway and pay a fee,” the minister said.

At the same time Omelian stressed that the prospect for development of toll roads in Ukraine depends on economic growth.
