Some pictures of Ukranian roads i made during my trip though Ukraine last summer.


01) The M03, from Kiev towards Kharkiv.




02) The M03.




03) Also the M03.




04) Entering Kharkiv.




05) The (old?) M18. A new modern 2x2 highway was being constructed near this road, conneting Kharkiv with Dnipropetrovsk.




06) The M18 near Dnipropetrovsk. This stretch of motorway wasn't busy, but the quality of the road was not good, it was quite bumpy. A lot of holes in the pavement demand a good suspension.




07) This is somewhere south of Zaporizhzhya, on the way towards Crimea. Notice the flying saucer on the left.




08) Quite common in Ukraine, a small marketplace where you can but food and drinks.




09) Somewhere in the southern part of Ukraine, near the city of Melitopol. Speeds up to 150/160 km/h are not uncommon. Driving in this country is somewhat dangerous, but also it isn't boring! Especially Russian drivers believe they are as fast as Schumacher.





10) The scenic and beautiful road between Sevastopol and Yalta.




11) This was on the way from Yalta towards Simferopol. A part of the road is a victim of a small landslide. The roads around Simferopol were remarkeble, some were very good (from the north you enter the city via a new and very good highway), but towards Sevastopol all traffic goes straigh through small residential neigbourhoods on unpaved and shitty roads!

I had a girlfriend once (in 2003 or so) whose family always goes to Ukraine with a tent. That was quite something back then.

I doubt. I don't think Lithuania and Ukraine had motorways (officially) in those times. Also, the Russian motorway sign looks differently, more like our signs.

Just a couple of pics from the opening of the new highway Kharkiv - Pereshpino.




























909, great pics man! Hopefully you enjoyed your summer in Ukraine and its roads as well

Thanks Some guys from Ukrainian forum already tested this new road. They said its great when they hit 200 km/h on their car as for me by looking at the pics I think its very "EU Style" road cant wait till i go back to Ukraine, must test it my self.

I'd say some 150 km. So Ukraine has finally started to build real motorways, great to see that. I just don't know why that parallel road is necessary:

An on-ramp, perhaps
I think that pic is taken from a viaduct of an intersection.

AFAIK, they just completed the soviet-era development. This road remained almost completed and abandoned from late 80-s.
