In fact only a few roads are 2+2 and no one of them goes through all the country. To upgrade a road to the motorway standard, you need not only advanced pavement, but also new junctions and overpasses, which means a great deal of investment. There has been some progress on Ukraine's main roads in the last years, but the overall road quality is still poor due to lack of funds. IMO when the economical and political situation improves, motorway construction should become an important factor to boost the economy.

Well, allright then.
Let's wait until the situation gets better for Ukraine.
And indeed, road infrastructure should become a priority for the country.

And a question:
AFAIK, there are 2 motorways in Ukraine.
Is it true?

It is true for Ukraine, but those may not be European-standard motorways. They are marked with this kind of sign:



The first one is the 18 km section of M03 road from Kyiv to Boryspil Airport. It has maximum allowable speed of 130 km/h. However, it also has (or had until recently) bus stops, so it may not be a motorway by European standards.

The second one is M29 from Kharkiv to Novomoskovsk, which is around 150 km long. However, it has no road lighting on junctions and its last section from Novomoskovsk to Dnipropetrovsk is still unfinished.

Thanks for uploading these pics, now I have a much better view of the Ukrainian roads....

BTW:
Have the authorities ever thought about expanding these motorways???
And also, how do the Lviv-Kyiv and Kyiv-Donetsk roads look like?
If there are any pics available, I'd like to see them

Thanks

What does that mean, is there a motorway(-like) section (2x2, grade-separated, median, access-controlled) under construction? Or have works not been started? If construction started, do you have any information about section length, construction start, estimated completion date etc? Is the section still u/c or suspended?

Is there any motorway section under construction or suspended in Ukraine?

Construction works between Novomoskovsk and junction with M04 road (about 30 km) have been halted, and there is only 1x1 road with some sections of bad pavement. This part of the road is marked with the long red arrow on this map.

Once more, thank you for the pictures.
Roads in Ukraine look pretty good but they need further development......lets just hope it's gonna happen sometime in the near future.

In fact these are the best roads. Most secondary roads need revitalization, so there is a lot of work to do before starting to build motorways.

Do they have any plans to upgrade the E40/M10 from Lviv to the Polish border to motorway or at least dual carriageway?

I think the northern part is already in service, see Bing Satellite (only southbound carriageway 1+1 in service) and Google Satellite (northbound carriageway completed and in service too). Only the sectrion between Mar'yanivka and Pidhorodne (M04) seems to be incomplete and suspended (about 12km).

According to OSM and Bing Maps, M29 has motorway standard between Holubivka and Hubynykha only (and north of Holubivka) but according to Google Maps, this section is not in service at all!
