The Cabinet of Ministers will direct HR 400 million to complete construction and put into operation subway stations Demiivska, Vasylkivska and Holosiivska (Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska subway line) from the Lybidska metro station towards Teremky housing estate until December 31, 2010, and about UAH 1 billion to build the Podilskyi Bridge in Kyiv.
The Department of Information and Mass Communication of the Cabinet of Ministers' Secretariat announced government pledges on Sunday.
"The government will envisage HR 400 million to complete construction and put into operation Demiivska, Vasylkivska and Holosiivska subway stations until December 31, 2010, and about HR 1 billion to build a bridge to Troyeschyna housing estate," the statement cited Prime Minister Mykola Azarov as saying.
Azarov assured the funds will be provided despite of this year's tight budget.
As Ukrainian News reported, the Kyivskyi Metropoliten municipal enterprise intends to finish construction of the three subway stations from the Lybidska subway station towards Teremky housing estate by July 2011.
In July 2005, Kyivmetrobud launched construction of a 3.8-kilometer subway section including three stations: Demiivska, Holosiivska and Vasylkivska.
By today 80-90% of the work had been done. Kyiv city state administration had planned to commission the car part of the Podilskyi Bridge in 2010 and the subway part in 2011.
The Mistobud company started construction of the Podilskyi Bridge in December 2003.
The bridge stretches for 7.5 kilometers. The distance between bridge bearings is 33 meters.
