[UA] Ukraine | road infrastructure • Українські автодороги

Ukraine



The Ukraine. One of the largest countries in Europe, and a former Soviet republic, now a country with one of the larger populations in Europe; 47.000.000
The area is around 604.000 square kilometer, making it the 44th largest country in the world. Ukrainian GDP is $ 8.000 and the Human Development Index is growing. The Ukrainian capital is Kiev, and the country has a few other cities with over a million of population, Odessa, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk and Donetsk.

The Southwest is mountainous with the Karpaty mountains. The central has flatlands with some major artificial lakes in the Dnipro river, where Kiev is also located on. The east has one of the largest industrial areas of Europe, the Donbass region. A lot of larger cities are centered here. On the southern side of the Ukraine are beach destinations, on the Krim peninsula and around Odessa. Only the narrow Kerch strait divides Russia and Ukraine on the Black Sea, and the Sea of Azov.

Roads
The Ukraine already posesses a large amount of major highways, some of them are up to or are being build to motorway standards. The Ukrainian government has deployed ambitious plans to upgrade many roads and build a lot of motorways, including a 200km Kiev 8-lane ringroad, and a motorway from Slovakia to Luhansk, spanning over 1500km.

The major roads in the Ukraine have M-numbers, Regional roads have P-numbers (Cyrillic, Latin R). The E-numbers are also present in the Ukraine, but it's uncertain if they are signed.

Numbering:
M1 Kiev - Chernihiv - Dobrjanka (BY) (Homel)
M2 Kipti (M1) - Hluchiv (RUS) (Orel)
M3 Kiev - Poltava - Kharkiv - Slovjansk - Krasnyj Luc (RUS) (Rostov)
M4 Kiev - Dnipropetrovsk - Donetsk - Luhansk (RUS) (Rostov)
M5 Kiev - Bila Cerkva - Odesa
M6 Kiev - Zhytomir - Rivne - L'viv - Uzhorod (H) (Nyiregyhaza)
M7 Kiev - Korosten - Kovel (PL) (Lublin)
M8 Rivne - Luck - Volodymyr-Volynskyj (PL) (Zamosc)
M9 Lviv - Rava Ruska (PL) (Zamosc)
M10 Lviv - Krakovec (PL) (Rzeszów)
M11 Lviv - Mostyska (PL) (Przemysl)
M12 Lviv - Ternopil - Chmelnickyj - Vinnycja - Kirovohrad (M4)
M13 Kirovohrad - Kotovsk (MD) (Chisinau)
M14 Odessa - Mykolajiv - Cherson - Melitopol - Berdjansk - Mariupol (RUS) (Rostov)
M15 Odessa - Izmajil (MD) (Galati)
M16 Odessa - Tiraspol (MD)
M17 Sevastopol - Simferopol - Kerch
M18 ?
M19 Ratne (BY) (Brest) - Luck - Ternopil - Cernivci (MD) (Balti)
M20 Rivne - Chmelnickyj - Kamjanec-Podilskyj - Cernivci
M21 Rivne - Stolin (BY) (Zytkavicy)
M22 ?
M23 Uljanovka (M5) - Mykolajiv
M24 Cherson - Simferopol
M25 Krasnoperekopsk - Feodosija
M26 Kharkiv - Zaporizzhja - Melitopol - Simferopol

(destinations are approximate and local or English spelling may differ).

Next i'll show some pics.

The BBC is wrong. There is over 1700km of high capacity roads (at least 2x2 lanes). I'm not sure if they are Soviet-like motorways, or to real motorway standards, but some of them are (M5).

Ofcourse, Ukraine is one of the poorer countries in Europe, and road conditions are harsh, with winter temperatures well below -30 and in summer well over 30. If you don't have much money for road repairs, they will be cracked within 2 years.

They said exactly the same thing about polish motorways, actually they claim that Poland don't have any whereas we have over 700 km of Motorways not to mention that other 200 km are under construction already and yet another 400 will start within next year.

In terms of news regarding Eastern Europe they're full of s..t.

M5 is a very impressive motorway. I drove on some stretch of it while it was still under construction. The surface was very smooth and provided virtually noiseless drive. Let's see how long this quality will last

Well, in terms of design Israeli highways are not much better either.

Actually, for the most part they are. But the newly constructed highways, like the M5, are not worse I presume (haven't driven on them).

EIB fund Ukraine Link

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is lending €200 million to Ukraine for the rehabilitation of the M06 road, linking the Ukrainian capital to the neighbouring EU Member States of Hungary, Slovakia and Poland. This is the first operation of the EIB in Ukraine.
The promoter of the project is Ukravtodor, the State Road Service of Ukraine. The project will contribute to eliminating bottlenecks on the M06 road and improve the quality and security of the existing infrastructure. The M06 road is part of the Pan-European Corridor III connecting Eastern European countries with the EU's TEN (Trans-European Network).

The EIB has lent close to €87 billion over the last five years to support investment in the TENs and other major transport networks.
I hope they upgrade the road to motorway standards, since much of the road is already fourlaned.

From Kiev to Zhitomir runs a very decent motorway, but then it is a complete disaster up to Lviv (Lemberg). While driving there (2004), I was really afraid that the suspension would die. After Lviv across Carpathian mountains, there is a new expressway almost to the border. The uninterrupted motorway from Kiev to the border will be vital for Ukraine, no questions.

When is it planned to be operational? Yet before Euro 2012? This ringroad is very very wide. Much wider than Berliner Ring. IMO it could have been planned more compact and closer to the city.

And why not? IMO it's the best way to connect a road to a highway(ofcourse semi-cloverleaf for minor roads)

-------------------------------

About the Kiev ringroad - It's rather not viable to finish it before Euro2012
