Is there any map of motorways sections in Ukraine?
This road looks like the M05 Kyiv-Odessa expressway, but it is of much better quality....as I see the situation of the M05, upgrading it is either hard or really expensive.

This is Kharkiv-Novomoskovsk M29 highway, which I mentioned before. Here are some photos of it made by me last week.

















Some parts are not in a very good condition, as you can see.

Thank you for the photos Kozhedub!
These roads look really cool.
The only thing they need is some more maintenance.

Half of World Bank's loan to reconstruct Poltava-Kharkiv highway to be sent to repair roads

Ukraine and the World Bank have agreed that $400 million out of an $800 million loan provided by the bank for the reconstruction of the Poltava-Kharkiv highway will go to repair existing roads, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk said at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

"We with Natalie [Jaresko, Finance Minister] met the World Bank director. The bank gives $800 million for the Poltava-Kharkiv highway, and we agreed that we will divide the sum 50% to 50%. The half will go to the Poltava-Kharkiv highway, and the half will go to repair of existing roads, as the state of the roads in the country is awful," he said.

The premier said that the same scheme will apply to the EUR 100 million loan from Poland.

"I talked to the Polish prime minister. Poland provided EUR 100 million to Ukraine, and we agreed with Ewa Kopacz to divide EUR 100 million in two parts and send EUR 50 million to road construction, first those roads that approach border entry points [between Ukraine and Poland]," Yatseniuk said.

As reported, the World Bank in late January 2015 confirmed its plans to invest $800 million in the Third Secondary and Local Roads Project – the Poltava-Khariv section of M-03 Kyiv-Kharkiv-Dovzhansky highway.

It was planned that the project will have two phases. The first is the improvement of road infrastructure on a 130-kilometer section. The second is the organization of measures aimed at increasing road safety, maintaining the state of roads and introducing the car weighing complex.

Two European companies interested in building first concession road in Ukraine

Two European companies have shown interest in a project to construct the first concession road in Ukraine, the Lviv-Krakovets road, Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine Andriy Pyvovarsky has said.

"I don't want to name them, these are two European companies, one of them is a Polish company," he said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday.

Pyvovarsky added that the construction of the concession road is supported by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and local authorities.

"We've start forming the conditions of the concession tender, and in two weeks we will be able to present the tender documents," he said.

The project "Construction and operation of the Lviv-Krakovets road 84.4 km long" is a pilot concession project in Ukraine. The degree of economic efficiency from its implementation will define the level of potential investors' interest in the project and the feasibility of realizing other concession projects in Ukraine.

Chairman of the State Agency of Automobile Roads of Ukraine (Ukravtodor) Serhiy Pidhainy said that a tender to construct the Lviv-Krakovets concession road is to be announced in April.

According to Pidhainy, the draft financial model, all the necessary studies and the tender documents have been developed and are being approved by the government.

No, it is just being upgraded to a 2x2 highway, no multi-level junctions are planned as far as I know.

Oh, just a duplication then......OK, at least I hope it's going to look better after the reconstruction.
BTW, are there any other roads under reconstruction?

One section of M05 from Kyiv to Odessa is under reconstruction, its photos can be seen on one of the previous pages. Also construction of a toll motorway from Lviv to Krakovec' (Polish border) is being planned.

OK then.
And what's the planned length of that Lviv-Krakovets road?
I think its construction will be beneficial, though.

A little more than air distance and a little less than the current road distance between the towns.

At the present stage of Ukrainian reforms and the need for a defensive war, the best solution for Ukraine and Europe would be an extension of the polish A4 to Lviv at the expense and by the standards of the European Union (concrete surface) and transfer it to the free use of Ukraine.
The advantage of this solution is not mathematically counted but for political strategists is unmistakable.

As of 2010, the average daily traffic at the Korczowa / Krakovets' border crossing was only 3,600 vehicles per day. Although that is fairly high for an eastern EU border crossing, I doubt if traffic volumes towards L'viv are high enough to make a toll road profitable. I don't think it will be under a classic market-rate concession.

We have enough roads to build in the EU, we don't have money to build them even outside of it. It's not like you can't get from Poland to Lviv right now.

Does someone know why there are freshly paved and painted roads in Chernobyl area, that is abandoned since 1986?

Even without traffic, no way a road remains so good after 30 years.

Chernobyl itself is not in the exclusion zone. The famous ghost town is Pripyat which is right next to the power plant
