Ukraine has an extensive highway network of over 170,000 km which covers the entire territory of Ukraine. It includes four international corridors which pass through the country and serve as important transport routes for both freight and passenger traffic.
In recent years there has been a noticeable improvement in this sector; state policy focused more attention on the country’s infrastructure and successfully mobilized the resources of international agencies and the cooperation of foreign countries to bring new investment to the highway network.
In 2020, the Government plans to spend over $4 billion to repair and rebuild 6,500 km of roads – the biggest road building program in Ukraine’s history.
State policy is now focused on fostering a competitive market in highway construction, which is stimulating the implementation of new public-private partnership projects. This latest initiative provides new opportunities for foreign investment that will not only have a long-term impact on renewing necessary highway infrastructure, but will also significantly contribute to Ukraine’s economic revival.
