As reported in the press service of the Ministry of infrastructure, this year will start the construction of the 1st concrete road route from the Dnieper to Nikolaev. Later next year, the government plans to build several such roads in a southerly direction. The first project has already held tenders.

In addition to the concrete road of Mykolaiv Ukraine is trying to implement the project concrete district around Zhitomir. However, at the moment the construction never actually started due to the low level of preparation for the Chinese contractor. Also we are working on the paperwork for the construction of several roads of concrete in the southern regions of the country.Concrete roads have a longer service life and, at the same time, their construction is more complicated in technological terms. The Ministry noted that in large-scale construction of concrete road will cost more than asphalt. In the process of implementing such technologies in road infrastructure, the price of cement will start to grow and a concrete road will cost 25-50% more expensive than asphalt, noted in the Cabinet. At the same time, their construction is more profitable in the long term.
