Ukraine’s Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal asked his Polish counterpart Donald Tusk to consider the possibility of Poland's participation in the construction of the Krakovets-Lviv-Brody-Rivne highway during a meeting in Kyiv.
This was announced in a statement on the Ukrainian Government Portal, the CFTS portal reports.
Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister of Development of Communities, Territories, and Infrastructure and Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov supported this idea.
"One of the potential logistics projects in which Polish companies can participate on concession terms is the construction of the Krakovets-Lviv-Brody-Rivne highway - the A4 highway, which is the longest highway in Poland and part of the pan-European route E40," the Government Portal quoted Kubrakov as saying.
As reported previously, the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure discussed the possibility of building the first two toll roads in Ukraine in 2021. At that time, the discussion focused on the construction of a completely new road with a length of over 200 kilometers along the route Krakovets-Lviv-Brody-Rivne, as well as along the route Stryi-Mukacheve. The implementation of the first of the proposed projects was expected to begin in 2022.
