Germany could finance construction of the Mariupol-Zaporizhia highway, Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan wrote on his Facebook page on Monday. “Germany is considering the possibility of allocating financing to build the road in Eastern Ukraine. Probably it will be the Mariupol–Zaporizhia road. It will be the first real highway in Ukraine built according to all EU requirements,” he said.
According to the minister, together with Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, the certification of this new type of transport (highway) by TÜV SÜD, the leading German safety association has been launched. As reported, last week in Germany Omelyan held talks with the ministries of economy and transport, and met with Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier.
Earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the state targeted economic program for the development of public roads of state importance for 2018-2022.
