In addition, the railway stations of Kyiv, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Vinnytsia, Mykolaiv, Khmelnytskyi, Chop, Lviv and Odesa are getting ready for concession. Together with the World Bank, we are also preparing public-private partnership projects for six pilot sections of roads with a total length of 1,400 km. In addition, we are planning pilot concessions at airports,” the press service cited Kryklii as saying.
