28.02.2018

The European Union is ready to part of the construction of the Go Highway transport corridor. Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan stated this after a meeting with EC Director-General for Mobility and Transport Henrik Hololei, which was held within the framework of a transport dialogue between Ukraine and the EU.

Co-financing a euro-gauge track from Poland to Lviv is considered as well.

The Go Highway transnational transport corridor project is aimed to link Ukraine’s Black Sea ports of Mykolaiv and Odesa with Poland’s Gdansk on the Baltic Sea, reports UkrAgroConsult.

According to the Infrastructure Ministry of Ukraine, the entire length of the transport route will be 1746 km, including 658 km running through Poland and 1088 km projected to run through Ukraine. Once implemented, the project will make goods deliveries from the Baltic to the Black Sea faster and cheaper. Its total value equals EUR 1 Bl.

The project is backed by the World Bank. Expenditures from the State Budget of Ukraine are envisaged for the project implementation.
