Ukrainian road construction programme to accelerate after Euro 2012

Over recent years, the overwhelming share of road construction initiatives was taken by projects related to Ukraine’s role as co-host of Euro 2012. The initial plan for the construction and renovation of Ukrainian roads within the framework of the country’s preparation for the Championships (set in 2008) included the renovation of national roads stretching more than 2,800 km. In total, Ukraine spent approx. $3bn on road infrastructure projects related to the tournament. The overwhelming share of necessary projects were rolled out during 2010-2011.
In 2012, large construction initiatives continued to be deployed across the country. Between January and August about 200 km of category-I motorways were extensively renovated, including 114 km of the Kyiv-Zhytomyr route, 81 km of the Kyiv-Kharkiv route, and 9.4 km of the Dnipropetrovsk-Donetsk route. Another large project is the construction of the second phase of the Southern Bypass of Dnipropetrovsk with a total length of 9.8 km, including 7 km of road built from scratch, and the renovation of the Yuzhny bridge (1.2 km). In addition, a radial road − Dnipropetrovsk-Novonikolaevka (2.5 km) − will be constructed, connecting the first 18 km put into use during the first phase, and 2 two-level junctions. The total investment needed for the second phase is estimated at about UAH 600m ($75).
