Transcarpathia has won a grant for construction of bike tracks
The Road Service in the Transcarpathian region together with the regional department of the Ukrainian-Hungarian cooperation participated in the fight for the European grant in the project ‘The development of cross-border cooperation between Ukraine-Hungary-Slovakia-Romania’. As a result, Transcarpathia has received 250 thousand euro for the construction of bike tracks in the region - informs the press office of Governor.
Transcarpathia has developed its own project ‘The integrated network of bicycle routes along the Ukrainian-Hungarian border’. Exactly this project won the European grant. Total project’s cost is nearly 450 thousand euro on the implementation of the Ukrainian part - 250 thousand euro.
- At the checkpoint Vylok, Dyakovo and Luzhantsi, for example, from the Hungarian side the pedestrian and cycle tracks were already made. We will build two parts of bike tracks on the highway area between the checkpoints ‘Luzhanka-Astey-Beregovo’ and ‘Vylok- Nevetlenfolu’ - said the head of the Road Service in the Transcarpathian region Vasyl Markovych.
- In May 2013 we will build the first 7 miles of bicycle tracks. Grant for construction of bicycle tracks is a good opportunity for tourism development of the region. There are many noteworthy tourist sites on the territory where will be built bicycle tracks. The fact that all they will be collected on one tourist route, will draw attention of even larger number of tourists to Transcarpathia- said the first deputy head of the region Ivan Bushko.
