Signing the grant agreement is scheduled for the end of December this year. After a complete reconstruction the full daily capacity of the checkpoint "Uzhgorod" will amount to 5,000 cars, 500 trucks, 80 buses, 10 thousand people. 

Oleksandr Pohylko assumes that the movement of people and cars during reconstruction will not be fully blocked.
