External funding will pay for maintenance and safety upgrades on Ukraine’s road network. A deal was struck between Ukraine’s state highway agency Ukravtodor and the World Bank for a loan to cover the necessary work. The US$450 million loan will provide the financing required for Ukraine’s Federal programme of road improvements. Surface quality and safety upgrades will be carried out on a series of major road links, with the Kiev - Kharkov highway section between Lubny and Poltava having been identified as a priority for the work.
