MINSK, 5 November (BelTA) – Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko inaugurated the reconstructed section from Slutsk to Soligorsk of the P23 Minsk-Mikashevichi highway on 5 November, BelTA has learned.
"It has become a good tradition in our country to unveil new industrial, transport, and social facilities ahead of 7 November. This year is no exception: these days we are opening new facilities all over Belarus. This suggests that the country is developing, fulfilling the plans to create comfortable environment and infrastructure for business and citizens. Significant work has been done to upgrade the main trunk roads that connect Minsk with regional centers. Today, we are opening a new section of the P23 highway in the southern part of Minsk Oblast, where a large number of industrial enterprises are concentrated. In a little more than a year road workers reconstructed 15km of the road, built a four-lane highway. Plans are in plans to continue the reconstruction of P23 according to the first-category standards towards the town of Starobin. Design works on this site have already begun," Roman Golovchenko said.
The project to reconstruct the Slutsk-Soligorsk section of the P23 highway cost Br78 million, Transport and Communications Minister Aleksei Avramenko told reporters.
