In 11 months 2009 Public service of the highways "Ukravtodor" put 7,8 km of the new and reconstructed roads in operation, having spent for it 913,5 million UAH of budgetary funds.
About it the newspaper "Business" (No. 217 for December 23) writes at the disposal of which there were operational data on a construction of roads in Ukraine.
According to the document, in 11 months of the current year "Ukravtodor" put 7,8 km of the new and reconstructed roads in operation.
"The first that surprises, is a scanty figure", - notes the edition and reminds that within preparation for Euro-2012 state assumed obligations at the expense of the budget in a year to construct 341,7 km of roads. "As a result we have result by 44 times smaller from planned", - states "Business"
Also the newspaper pays attention to the price which the state pays for such roads. According to "Ukravtodor's" report, 7,8 km cost to the budget 913,5 million UAH. As found out the edition, nearly billion hryvnias is spent, and only two sites of roads are repaired: Aleksandrovka - Kirovograd - Nikolaev (1,6 km) and Novomirgorod - the Temple Bike (4 km) in the Kirovograd area. Two sites (1,9 and 0,3 km) routes of local value in Rivnensky and Sumy areas are also constructed.
"By simple arithmetic calculations it is possible to find out that each kilometer of these roads cost to the state 117,5 million UAH. For comparison, in the USA such works cost to the federal budget in terms of гривню on the average 47,2 million. In China kilometer of the highway build for the sum equivalent to 19,2 million UAH. Even in Ukraine there are examples when laying of the international highway manages several times cheaper. For example, at present same "Ukravtodor" realizes the joint project of capital repairs of the highway Kiev - PSF for borrowed funds", - the newspaper writes.
Thus, by data I "Put", the kilometer of actually new highway costs 21,9 million UAH. "So essential difference in cost speaks simply - creditors (The European bank of reconstruction and development and the International bank of reconstruction and development) rigidly control use of money.As a result on 57 km of the highway constructed this year, it is spent by 1,25 billion UAH", - the newspaper notes.
The chairman of Civil service of highways Vadim GURZhOS refused to explain to the edition why reconstruction and construction of small sites of local roads cost such big financial means.
In turn, notes "Business" subordinates V. GURZHOSA explained that 913,5 million UAH were spent not only for the specified 7,8 km of roads. According to their data, this sum also included expenses on laying of other roads. But as these objects are yet ready, and they didn't get to the report.
