MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. Restoration and repair of roads in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) are planned for spring 2016, DPR transport minister Semyon Kuzmenko said on Monday.
"There are currently 2.5 times more capabilities in the republic than required for servicing our roads, there is no deficit in production capacities. However, this year we are not likely to meet all our needs. Servicing will take place in accordance with the schedule. Comprehensive restoration is planned to start in spring," Kuzmenko told Donetsk News Agency.
The "Avtodor" state enterprise which DPR received from Ukraine "in poor condition" is now the main company tasked with road construction in the republic, he continued. "[DPR’s] finance ministry allocates more money for repair works, and we are gradually gaining momentum," he noted.
The transport minister said DPR plans to repair the highway to the Uspenka settlement located near the Russian border. "Financing is not yet fully secured. Since we have a people’s republic, social payments are made first, and then money are allocated for other needs," Kuzmenko stressed.
According to DPR transport ministry, a total of 5,680 square meters of roads was repaired in DPR as of 1 October 2015.
