Reconstruction of Belarusian roads continues despite complications

GRODNO, 4 November (BelTA) – About 800km of major roads will be reconstructed this year. Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko mentioned the figure during a working trip to Grodno Oblast on 4 November, BelTA has learned.

Roman Golovchenko said: “We have obligations both to the country and to citizens to build, reconstruct, and repair roads. This is why we are honoring them. About 800km of major motorways and about 1,400km of municipal roads will be reconstructed this year. Moreover, the government has specifically allocated additional funds in complicated conditions for the sake of repairing more roads. The additional funds will be spent on sprucing up streets inside and outside population centers.”

The official also remarked that the government had approved a bridge reconstruction program. “A large number of running meters of bridge structures will be repaired. By the way, a number of landmark installations will be commissioned by 7 November. One of them is a bridge in Novopolotsk. Its major overhaul will be finished. The southwestern bypass road in Mogilev is another one. The Sloboda-Novosady road towards Zhodino is being actively built now,” the prime minister said.

Asked how road reconstruction will proceed after the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development stopped its operation in Belarus, Roman Golovchenko said: “Most of the Western money is gone but the government has found a way to substitute all these assets and honor the commitments stipulated by the government program Roads of Belarus.”
