Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelian stated this during a briefing following the meeting with European Commission's Director-General for Mobility and Transport, Henrik Hololei, within the framework of the Ukraine-EU transport dialogue, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Today we have learned that one of the financial instruments of the European Union is ready to finance a part of Go Highway project to connect the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea," the minister said.
The possibility of co-financing the construction of railway lines from Poland to Lviv is also being considered, Omelian added.
As reported, UAH 4 billion will be additionally allocated for construction of the Go Highway corridor in 2018.
It is planned to connect the Ukrainian Black Sea ports in Mykolayiv and Odesa with the Polish Gdansk on the Baltic Sea within the framework of the Go Highway transnational transport corridor project. The implementation of the project will allow accelerating and reducing the cost of transportation of goods from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea.
