How much will it cost to travel on autobahns in Ukraine

According to a World Bank study, residents of Ukraine can afford tolls at a rate of 0.05 eurocents per kilometer.

How much will it cost to travel along the autobahns in Ukraine At such a cost, if a concession is organized and such a route is built, a trip from Kiev to Odessa will cost 790 hryvnias.

Survey data indicate that Ukrainians do not mind paying, but only on condition that the road is of high quality.

For a long time it was believed that good roads in Ukraine can be exclusively paid. However, now, it would seem, the dead matter has moved from the point, and alternatives have appeared.

So, already from January 1, 2018, the decentralization process came into force, which also applies to the road sector, and 120,000 km of local roads were transferred to the competence of the regional state administrations with appropriate funding. That is, money for repairs or road construction does not need to wait “from above” – ​​you can use your own resources obtained, for example, from fees from excisable goods.

In addition, the Cabinet adopted a targeted program designed for 2018-2023. Volodymyr Groysman said that during this time “50% of Ukraine’s roads will be made.”

And here is one of the last, long-awaited, decisions – roads of national importance can be transferred to concession.

And here is one of the last, long-awaited, decisions – roads of national importance can be transferred to concession.

“Concession is a form of project implementation in which both the state and private investors participate. The law that Poroshenko signed at the end of February stipulates that the concessionaire can be transferred the right to build and further operate roads of national importance. This is about building exclusively new roads where alternative free travel is provided, that is, if now a road of the first category, of national importance, passes through a settlement, and all users of the road are faced with a huge traffic jams at the entrance to this city. The project will allow you to bypass the village and take the opportunity to build a new road so that you can charge a fare, “explained the director of the state-owned Ukrdorinvest Elena Krivoruchko.

According to her, a recent World Bank study on the potential development of Ukraine’s concession roads found that today, more than 5 eurocents per 1 km, residents of Ukraine cannot afford.

How much will it cost to travel on autobahns in Ukraine? Ukraine definitely needs toll roads. We will not be guided by the rates of tolls such as those used in the European Union. As the fare is calculated not only on the basis of the costs incurred by the concessionaire for the construction of a particular road, but the economic indicators of the state are also taken into account. Take the Kiev-Bila Tserkva highway, where we often observe traffic jams. And we were talking about preparing a concession agreement. Given that the distance between Kiev White church – about 80 km, the 5 cents – quite an adequate price per kilometer route Kiev -. Odessa -. It is the way the first category I can say with absolute certainty that it is absolutely an alternative route Odessa – Kiev is impossible to build, “- said Krivoruchko.

If you take for 0.05 euro cents (UAH 1.63 at the NBU rate) for the benchmark, then travel along the Kiev – Belaya Tserkov road will cost 130 hryvnias one way (80 km = 4 euros). It will cost 24 euros, or 791 hryvnias, to get from the capital to Odessa along a 484-km route. And if the ring road around Kiev is nevertheless completed, then for 200 km it will be necessary to pay 327 hryvnias (or 10 euros), although according to the calculations of the KSCA transport department, for drivers, this pleasure will cost 100 hryvnias one way.

But in Europe, drivers traveling across Switzerland pay the most for driving on toll roads – from 23 to 55 euros, and a vignette (a toll, in the form of a sticker is molded on the glass of a car and entitles you to free travel) costs 34 euros for a year. One of the most expensive autobahns in Europe is in Italy, here the fare costs from 5.8 euros to 55.5 euros. If we talk about Scandinavia, whose routes they like to set as an example in Ukraine, then in Sweden the fare is 0.5-48 euros
