PJSC Ukrzaliznytsia estimates the cost of implementing high-speed rail service of up to 250 km/h between Kyiv, Odesa and Lviv via Vinnytsia at $16 billion, the director for strategic development and investment policy at Ukrzaliznytsia, Anton Sabolevsky, has told Interfax-Ukraine. “Within the framework of the working group on the introduction of high-speed rail traffic, we estimated how much the construction of infrastructure for organization of high-speed communication between Kyiv, Odesa and Lviv via Vinnytsia could cost in principle. To build this infrastructure, about $16 billion is needed, taking into account the acquisition of appropriate rolling stock, its service centers and management,” he said.
At the same time, he noted Ukrzaliznytsia has not calculated the cost of high-speed communication between all the regional centers of Ukraine, since the implementation of such a project goes beyond the long-term planning and can be carried out exclusively in stages.
According to him, the work on implementing the infrastructure project for organization of high-speed rail service along the Kyiv-Kharkiv route could take at least ten years.
