About 5,000 kilometers of roads in Ukraine are not on the books of any entity and, accordingly, there is nobody to repair them and perform maintenance work, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelian said.
"I drove through the bypass road of the Okhtyrka city (Sumy region). Paradoxically, the road seems to exist, but it is not on the books of the city or Ukravtodor (the State Automobile Road Service). It was once built by oil workers, but it was never transferred to anyone. Therefore, it belongs to nobody. Consequently, there is nobody to repair and maintain it. They say that there up to 5,000 kilometers of such roads in Ukraine," Omelian wrote on his Facebook page.
He said that such "ghost” roads would be taken into account during decentralization of Ukravtodor and separation of funding for state and local roads.
