“I’m going to Germany in September to present the project at the investment forum and finish the bridge in two or three years. This is one of my key tasks at the post,” the mayor said.
Asked about the subway to Troyeschyna, Klitschko on the air of the Newsone TV Channel noted that it is possible to launch the metro line to Troyeschyna only by building the Podilsko-Voskresensky bridge.
“When I took office as a mayor, I was very surprised to learn that the documents for the bridge construction are dated 1979. In other words, in two years there will be 40 years since the start of construction of this bridge. I set the task to myself in two years to mark the opening (of the bridge), at least the automobile road between the left and right banks,” the mayor said.
According to Klitschko, huge amount of money is needed for the construction of the bridge and the launch of the metro, about â¬400 million. The mayor also noted Germany had already issued â¬200,000 for an expert assessment of the state of the bridge, which German specialists presented in April.
