Deutsche Welle about Ukrainian bridges
The Ukrainian edition of Deutsche Welle interviewed experts about the critical situation with bridges. According to the preliminary assessment of the special commission, more than 10% of the facilities were unsafe.
“The importance of motorways has increased and, accordingly, the attention to these transport corridors has increased,” says Ihor Samokhodskyi, director of the Ukrainian Infrastructure Association UNITE, speaking to DW. – “Bridges are a critical infrastructure that connects the right and left banks of the Dnipro River.
