1 min read

Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksandr Vilkul has said he considers the state of national roads poor, and promised the government would foresee a significant increase in funding for municipal road construction and repairs in the draft national budget for 2014.

"I appreciate that the condition of our roads is bad... In the framework of the law on the national budget for 2014, the government will significantly increase funding for municipal roads, including those in Kyiv," he told newspaper Komsomolska Pravda.

According to Vilkul, the poor state of roads in the country is due to the fact that most of them are old and are not designed for the existing amount of traffic and tonnage of modern trucks. Another of the reasons is "chronic and systemic" underfunding, he said.
