The construction of the Mostyska-Sknyliv railway segment from the Ukrainian-Polish border to Lviv will begin in 2024, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Interfax Ukraine news agency.

"The construction of the first major European-gauge railway segment: Mostyska-Sknyliv. We will connect our railway to the European rail network. This is the first project, and we will build it this year together with our European partners and donors," Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister for Reconstruction and Minister of Development of Communities, Territories, and Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov said at the forum "Ukraine. The Year 2024."

In addition, according to him, Ukraine plans to open several automobile crossings on its borders with Moldova, Romania, Hungary, and Poland this year. He added that the ministry is in the process of modernizing 23 border crossings.

In November 2019, the Ukrainian Railways joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia) announced in November 2019 that it plans to build a European-gauge railway with a track width of 1435 mm from Sknyliv to Mostyska, near the Ukrainian-Polish border. Construction of the Mostyska-Sknyliv railway was scheduled to begin in 2020.

In December 2023, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Ukrzaliznytsia signed a Memorandum of Understanding to help upgrade the railway segment from the Mostyska station, which is located on the border with Poland, to Lviv (Sknyliv station). The partnership between Ukrzaliznytsia and USAID will result in funding totaling USD 225 million for this rail segment.

Ukrzaliznytsia planned to complete the construction of the railway tracks by the end of 2023.
