Hlukhiv district and neighboring areas received more than UAH 105 million for road mending.

Due to the subvention from the state budget this year, the Sumy region received UAH 457 million for roadway replacement work and maintenance process. Also, about UAH 221 million came under the so-called customs experiment, when the funds from overfulfillment of revenues are directed to go to road mending. Hlukhiv district and neighboring areas of the north of the region will receive more than UAH 105 million of this money.

According to People’s Deputy Andrii Derkach, who is a member of the Budget Committee of the Verkhovna Rada, this is not the final amount for this year, today the possibility of allocating several million more to the district or territorial units is being considered.

At the beginning of the year there were working meetings on road mending issues in the constituency, which include Krolevets, Putivl, Yampil, Hlukhiv, Seredino-Buda districts and some villages of Shostkin and Konotop areas.

“Together with the heads of the districts, we identified the most problematic areas. Although the roads are completely crushed almost everywhere. My position remains the same: it is time to start overhauling certain areas, and not to waste money on patching and pothole repairs. Thus, little by little, for 2-3 kilometers, we can retread. Otherwise, all the money comes off with the snow in the spring “, A. Derkach comments.

For the funds that the region received from overfulfilment of customs revenues, the segments of the Sumy-Putivl-Hlukhiv highway, sections from the checkpoint “Seredino-Buda” to Yampil and Bereza, as well as the entrance to Druzhba will be repaired. The plans still call for the repair from the checkpoint “Nikolaevka” through Novgorod-Siversky to Hlukhiv and the checkpoint “Katerynovka”. UAH 50.9 million is allocated for this purpose.

In the Hlukhiv district the roads Dunajec-Semenovka, Hlukhiv-Voronezh and to Horiliy are planned to be repaired for UAH 9.5 million subventions from the state budget. In Hlukhiv, UAH 1 million will go to Nekrasov Street and UAH 400 thousand to Shkilniy Lane.

In the Yampil district, they decided to continue resurfacing the direction to the village of Knyazhichi, through Svesa and Marchikhina Buda.

“A month ago we managed to buy a bus, it was the only possible option to get out of the transport blockade to almost a thousand residents of Knyazhichi, Orlivka and Nikitovka. Because of the crashed road, all carriers refused to start the shuttle bus. It was sent UAH 890,000 from the state budget for acquiring a bus, and now it is logical to continue to move in the same direction: UAH 4.2 million was allocated for repairing the road. This is a small amount, it is not enough for 15 kilometers, but for the regional budget this is a significant help”, A. Derkach is sure.

An additional UAH 4.1 million was given to Druzhba, where the people are preparing to take care of roads on the Naberezhna, Zavodska Streets and Vyshneviy Lane.

In the Krolevets district, UAH 8.2 million will be distributed between the districts of Krolevets-Dobrotovo-Terekhovo, the bypass road and Dubovychi-Vorgol. In Konotop area UAH 4.2 million will go to Kozatske-Putivl. Another UAH 3.1 million will be used for repairing the streets in Krolevets, in particular, Voiniv-internationalistiv, Kozatska, Ostrovskoho and Andreevska Streets.

It was decided to spend UAH 8.2 million in the Putivl district on the direction from Linovo through Boyar-Lezhachi to the border with the Russian Federation. In the Sereduno-Buda area there are expected the current repairs from the Velyka Berezka to Pigarevka and Chernatsky (UAH 2.2 million) and from Znob`-Novgorod to Kaliyivka through Ochkino and Krivonosovka (UAH 1.8 million). Znob`-Novgorod will be able to invest UAH  2.4 million in the Zavodska and Trudova Streets.

Today, the tenders for the search of contractors have been announced, the customer is the Road Service in the Sumy region.
