The Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure has provided a report on the progress of the restoration of road infrastructure in the liberated regions of the country, the CFTS portal reports.
"The liberation of the Kharkiv and Kherson regions this autumn is the result of the effective operations by our Armed Forces. Immediately after the liberation of parts of our regions, road repair crews begin working on de-mined territories. The focus is on clearing destroyed vehicles and civilian cars, dismantling enemy roadblocks, repairing roads and roadside infrastructure, and erecting temporary crossings," the ministry said in the report.
According to the report, the State Road Agency (Ukravtodor) is promptly restoring roads to allow travel from safe regions to deliver humanitarian aid, water, medicines, and food to people.
In the Kharkiv region, over 600 kilometers of roads and streets have been cleared and 15 temporary crossings erected near the bridges that were destroyed during combat operations in the region (25 such bridges in the region).
Currently, work to restore transportation on highways and dismantle the structures of destroyed bridges is continuing in the region.
In the Kherson region, road repair crews are working on the right bank of the liberated region. Since the liberation, workers have restored three destroyed bridges linking to some settlements and provided transport links to the liberated settlements.
The aftermath of combat operations is being removed from some international highways and streets in the region. In total, 190 kilometers have already been cleared.
More than 2,000 kilometers of state roads and city streets have been cleared and 74 temporary crossings and detours built near destroyed bridges in the liberated territories.
In the Kyiv region, two major bridges have been fully restored on international highways: one on the M-06 Kyiv - Chop Highway near Stoyanka and the other on the M-03 Kyiv - Kharkiv - Dovzhanskyi Highway.
In total, 150 bridges have been destroyed and 8,800 kilometers of state roads damaged in 15 regions as a result of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
