Ukravtodor signs contracts to repair roads on Ukrainian-Polish border with two Polish companies
The State Automobile Roads Agency, also known as Ukravtodor, on September 7, 2017 signed contracts to implement overhaul of road sections on the Ukrainian-Polish border with two companies from Poland - Drog-Bud Sp.z.o.o. and Unibep S.A.
An Interfax-Ukraine correspondent has reported that the Polish loan will be sent to this project.
The governments of Ukraine and Poland signed an agreement on financing projects for development of road infrastructure in border regions and other projects in September 2015 in Poland. The agreement took effect in April 2016. The document provides for the development of transport infrastructure on the Ukrainian-Polish border, the improvement of the transport and operational state of 144 km of roads approaching the border with Poland and bringing traffic safety requirements on the Ukrainian roads to European standards.
In May 2017, tenders to design and repair sections of roads in Lviv and Volyn regions were announced. Drog-Bud Sp.z.o.o. and Unibep S.A won the tenders.
The cost of works in Lviv region totaled EUR 53.4 million.
The cost of design works and overhaul of the Ustyluh-Lutsk-Rivne road is EUR 4.8 million.
"This is the first unprecedented agreement between the governments of Poland and Ukraine on improving the state of infrastructure and roads. It is important for me, just as it is important for cooperation of the European Union countries and Ukraine. It is a good example of how cooperation should develop. I hope this will be a good example of quality work. I personally ask contractors to implement these projects as an example of how to make roads in Ukraine," Head of Ukravtodor Slawomir Nowak, who attended the signing ceremony, said.
