The prospects of building a bridge and a new checkpoint with Romania were discussed in Rakhiv district

On Tuesday, May 19, a delegation from Romania headed by the prefect of the Maramures region Anton Rochian visited Transcarpathia to discuss with representatives of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration the project on the construction of a bridge connecting the village of Bila Tserkva in Rakhiv district and the city of Sighetu, as well as the construction of a new checkpoint there.

From the Ukrainian side, the participants in the meeting were the Director of the Housing, Construction and Infrastructure Department of the RSA Vasyl Pryhara, the chief engineer of the Road Service in Transcarpathian region Vasyl Stadnik, the head of Rakhiv District State Administration Victor Medvid and the head of the village of Bila Tserkva Yuriy Berinde.

According to Vasyl Pryhara, the Government of Ukraine is currently considering the possibility of opening the crossing point Bila Tserkva - Sighetu Marmatiei, and the regional government supports the idea to build a bridge for the implementation of this project. Romania has identified the contractor for feasibility study which is planned to be completed within four months, and the project is planned to be approved within a year. "But, it requires the conclusion of an intergovernmental agreement - Vasyl Pryhara said. The Romanian Government adopted the relevant decision and allocated funds to build the bridge to the Ukrainian territory."

A group of Ukrainian technical experts consisting of representatives of the regional water management service, environmentalists and the road service will soon start working with Romanian designers to prepare the feasibility study for the construction of the new bridge and the crossing point.
