The quality of roads
and a corresponding warranty period remain among key requirements in the
construction and repair of Ukrainian road network. This
was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman on air of 112.UA TV channel.
that back then he had set a goal to unblock the process of repairing roads and
find mechanisms for financing construction activities. Presently,
according to the Prime Minister, the funds have been accumulated, the programs launched,
the road repair system is working. Hence,
an important step would be to ensure transparency of tenders, including a
possibility to engage law enforcement agencies in case of attempts to commit
unlawful acts, for instance, conspiracies.
"I need minimum
(possible) cost and maximum quality - with a warranty period. This
has already been foreseen in the agreements on construction and reconstruction",
said the Prime Minister.
He reminded that the
day before, on March 15, the Gov’t had approved a decision to form mobile
groups that would control the situation on roads and find building flaws. "Those
who carried out substandard work will fix the flaws at their own expense",
the Head of Government urged and added that a legislative decision is being
prepared and it stipulates for the formation of the so-called blacklist of
contractors who became a discredit in terms of quality of road construction
activities they perform. "Quality
control is above all", emphasized the Prime Minister.
