The future of transport for the South

Oleksandr Kubrakov, the chairman of the State Road Agency of Ukraine, presented a plan for the transformation of the road industry in Ukraine for 2021-2023, which studies the record of business and consumers within the electric transport sector.

All strategic changes will be implemented based on the experience of EU countries and successful cases of Western partners. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Ministry of Infrastructure, together with the State Road Agency of Ukraine, will develop the electric transport infrastructure in Ukraine.

In December 2020, the EBRD and the Government of Ukraine signed a 450 million euros loan agreement under the Trans-European Transport Network project (Ukraine — Road Corridors). The funds raised will be used to repair five sections of the M-05 Kyiv-Odesa highway, in particular, in the Mykolaiv and Odesa regions.

«Prior to the start of the Great Construction, the South of Ukraine was usually associated with terrible roads. In 2020, on the example of routes Mykolaiv – Kropyvnytskyi, Dnipro – Kryvyi Rih – Mykolaiv, Vasylivka – Berdiansk, Mariupol – Zaporizhzhia, Khadzhybeiskyi Bridge and a huge number of roads to main resorts of Odesa, Mykolaiv and Zaporizhzhia, we showed that the situation can be radically changed for the better. If we do not slow down, in 2023-2024 the South region will have a full-fledged modern European road», —

said Oleksandr Kubrakov, the chairman of the State Road Agency of Ukraine.

At the same time, at the Southern Development Strategy Forum, the organizers will pay attention to the problem of transport connections and the purchase of ten electric buses to service the routes «Novooleksiivka Railway Station – Henichesk – Strilkove» and «Novooleksiivka Railway Station – Chongar». There is also the issue of developing the infrastructure of charging stations for electric vehicles in the southern region. Therefore, the project will create conditions for the safe and comfortable movement of passengers and the development of hotel and sanatorium infrastructure.

Other important issues of the Forum are proper transport connections to industrial enterprises and city sea and river ports, the development of transshipment terminals of the Dnipro-Bug basin, and the rest of the multimodal transportation system in the direction of Odesa-Gdansk. According to Oleksandr Kubrakov, the joint project with the EBRD will help improve the road infrastructure of Ukraine (in particular, the Black Sea and the Azov Sea) to meet the modern requirements and tendencies of the world transport market.
