President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that in 2021, on the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence, within the program "Large Construction", it is planned to open the longest route in the country - M-30 - from Stryi, Lviv region to Izvaryne, Luhansk region.
"All our philosophy is aimed at uniting Ukraine, and this is what the infrastructure is about. We want to unite west and east with one big highway called M-30. It will be the longest road in Ukraine - 1400 kilometers. It will go from Stryi, but so far only reach Pokrovsk, because 200 kilometers of this road are located in the temporarily occupied part of the Luhansk region,” the President said during a working trip to Zaporizhzhia.
Deputy Head of the Office of the President Kyrylo Tymoshenko said that part of the route was restored in 2020, the rest will be restored in 2021. According to him, even without taking into account 200 km in the temporarily occupied territory, this route is still the longest in Ukraine.
"Currently, the longest road in Ukraine is 800 kilometers," he said.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy also noted that in 2020, all 238 kilometers of state roads in the Zaporizhzhia region planned to be built this year were built. Next year there are plans to build 300 km of roads.
"And this will cover almost one hundred percent of state highways in the Zaporizhzhia region," he said.
Kyrylo Tymoshenko noted that the construction of bridges in Ukraine will continue next year in the framework of the National Program "Large Construction".
