The Cabinet of Ministers allocated 17.1 billion hryvnias for the repair of Ukrainian roads.

We are talking about the remaining unused 2023 funds of the state budget, the representative of the Cabinet of Ministers told the parliament Taras Melnychuk in Telegram.

These are the funds that went to the Road Fund in previous years and were not used last year. They plan to send them to a new budget program called “Development of the network and maintenance of public roads of general use”.

Also, the procedure for using the state budget funds provided for the development of the network and the maintenance of public roads of state significance in 2024 was approved.

“The order defines… the distribution of budget funds according to the directions of use; the list of objects of construction, reconstruction, capital and current average repair of roads of general use of state importance and the amount of their financing at the expense of state budget funds,” the message says.

The Law “On the State Budget for 2024” stipulates that all proceeds to the Road Fund will be transferred to the general fund of the state treasury. The authorities canceled subventions to local budgets for roads of local importance. Last year, UAH 16 billion was estimated for this.

Thus, they want to use the remaining state budget money that was not used last year to repair roads this year. In some cases, money will be allocated for the repair of roads and bridges from the reserve fund.
