Higher status and reconstruction await Moscow - Kharkov - Simferopol highway
M18 highway "Moscow - Kharkov - Simferopol" should be included in the list of international transport corridors, according to the General Program for Planning the Territory of Ukraine.
The draft program also specifies that the M18 route must be completely reconstructed. Implementation of these tasks is one of the key points of developing transport infrastructure in Ukraine.
The project for upgrading the highway from the border with Russia to Kharkov and several segments from Kharkov to Simferopol was developed by Ukravtodor, Ukraine’s State Highways Agency.
