The Challenge 

Poor quality is a common problem seen in every component of Ukraine’s transportation infrastructure. The situation is aggravated by insufficient interaction between the various sectors of the transport industry, low investment, an outdated regulatory system and wear and tear on ageing fixed assets. With this combination of problems, today’s transport infrastructure cannot support sustainable economic development and ensure the global competitiveness of the country.
The second half of the 2000s saw a sharp increase in the number of automobiles in Ukraine. Over the first decade of the millennium, the number of motor vehicles grew by 22%, with the average annual growth rate exceeding 140,000 automobiles, of which 90% were passenger cars. The peak was in 2007 and 2008, which saw an annual growth rate of 12%, or 900,000 cars. Car ownership indicators in the Ukraine, however, are still low in comparison to other countries: three times lower than in Poland and four times lower than in Spain, which is big, but not the richest EU country.
