The poor quality of Ukrainian roads came into focus during the dramatic increase in the number of motor vehicles in the country in the early 2000s. Today, less than 2% of Ukraine’s road network can be considered high quality and modern, while more than 50% fails to meet even basic criteria. The poor quality of roads leads to huge losses – about 3% of GDP annually, making the sector particularly in need of heavy investment. Ukraine steadily receives one of the world’s lowest scores for quality of roads in the Global Competitiveness Index. Although assessments of the country’s quality of roads by business leaders in certain regions are sometimes not bad, the quantitative and qualitative indicators of the country’s overall road network are extremely low by European standards.
