Ukrzaliznytsia intends to build a railway to Bukovel


A new branch of the railway may appear in the Ivano-Frankivsk region

The construction of the new branch is predicted to take at least one year. Now the question is at the level of preliminary technical justification.

Management Ukrzaliznytsia is exploring the possibility of building a new railway line from Tatarov station to the resort Bukovel in Ivano-Frankivsk region. The director of the UZ branch told about this to the Center for Transport Strategies Passenger company Alexander Pertsovsky.

According to him, the cost of the project is at least one billion hryvnia, however, despite this, there are already interested private investors.

“So far, this is at the level of a preliminary technical justification. We are studying what routes can be laid, because the relief there is not easy, along the river, it will definitely be necessary to build tunnels. That is, we are talking about significant investments,” Pertsovsky said.

The official said that the construction of a new line will take at least one year from the date of the decision, and in the near future it is necessary to improve the infrastructure of the existing nearby railway stations.

“In the next year or two, we will work on improving the infrastructure of the stations (Tatarov, Yasinya) in order to turn them into transfer hubs, from where tourists will go directly to nearby resorts (instead of driving for several hours from Ivano-Frankivsk),” he said Pertsovsky.

As reported Ukrzaliznytsia signed a contract with the company Freeway to complete the construction of the Darnitsky Bridge in Kiev. The cost of the work is estimated at UAH 1.15 billion.
