“Until the end of the year we will fully complete all the test sections of road and will have all the necessary documentation. We must be sure that the proposed investor. At the beginning of 2019 will prepare an appeal to the Cabinet, to declare the tender for the concession,” – said Novak.

It is expected that the funds will be returned to the investor at the expense of the collection of tolls and fees for access to and exploitation of objects of road service, roadside infrastructure, advertising, logistics centers, modern communication lines along the road.

According to Novak, now there is a large number of applicants for the concession.

“There are a number of big European companies willing to invest. I think Ukrainian companies will not have such resources. Although Ukraine has few rich people. If they would be interested, why not. But I think that more interest will be the European banks and investors”, – said Novak.
