Cabinet to improve standards of road construction, says Azarov
The Ukrainian government is intending to improve the standards of road construction, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has said.
"Now we plan to construct major highways. We need to link all of our regional centers with good roads, and we want to raise the standard of road construction," Azarov said, when discussing the president's program of economic reforms with the representatives of the local executive power bodies and the humanitarian field, in Odesa.
He noted that certain parts of the Kyiv-Odesa international road built in 2004 need overhauls.
"We united Kyiv and Odesa with a road, which was quite good for the level of 2004. Eight years have passed and it is obvious that it needs to be repaired. Roads are not built for eight years – they should be built for 50-100 years, and for that we need to construct roads in the way they are made in Germany, Switzerland, Austria," said Azarov.
