Sadly but that's the reality on most Ukrainian routes..
Btw, very good pics, PLH, these ones do really clear up the situation with infrastructure in UA..!
But maybe we could see some improved, being prepared roads?

I could recommend some... M-05, M-06 at some parts, M-03 Kiev-Boryspil, M-18 (motorway between Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovs)

Well, western UA is the poorest part of the country, and might not be representative for other routes in Ukraine.

They are better, at least some parts of them. Here you have 1km of new road for 70km in general, in the eastern part it would be more.

it was a little outside of the city. it was as you come from Ternopil. In Ternopilska oblast the roads are just horrible. But as you enter Lvivska oblast the roads improve as they prepare for euro 2012. There's also a big difference as you leave Ukraine and enter Poland. The road quality is much better in Poland. no potholes lol

Why don't you then try to do that yourself, just drive along those extremely unsafe and bumpy roads and take many perfect shots, this sounds so easy, doesn't it?!

I was just thinking, E40 runs from Przemysl to Lviv, but the Korczowa - L'viv road (slightly more to the north) was U/C as a motorway, right? I have never heard anything about that since a few years... All I know is that some motorway was planned or U/C from Korczowa to L'viv.

Any updates on this road?

Edit:

this one:

Well forumer Renxu explained more about this road, there are loads of problems with it and 'perturbations' and it even it has a nickname 'suffering'

Well after all I hope construction will start and finish before Euro 2012 kicks off...

Any pics of that section? Is it a normal motorway, or sth Soviet-style? How long is it?
