In the Sumy region, road workers repaired the bridge on the Krolevets-Konotop-Romny-Pyryatin highway, which was damaged as a result of the invasion of the Russian Federation.
According to Ukrinform, the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov announced this in his Facebook.
“The communication between the north and south of the Sumy region has been restored. The road workers repaired a 12-meter bridge across the canal near the village of Shevchenkovo on the P-60 Krolevets-Konotop-Romny-Pyryatin highway,” the head of the Ministry of Infrastructure wrote.
According to Kubrakov, the bridge is already open for all types of transport. The Ministry of Infrastructure expects an improvement in the process of delivering aid and goods for residents of the Sumy region.
The bridge was damaged back in March as a result of the invasion of the Russian military into the Sumy region. As soon as the Armed Forces of Ukraine liberated the region and cleared mines, the road workers immediately began restoration work.
The repairmen dismantled the destroyed structures of the bridge, restored the damaged supports, and installed new superstructures. They also made a new asphalt concrete pavement, installed monolithic sidewalks, railings and barrier fencing.
In the near future, the road builders will complete all work and apply road markings.
According to Kubrakov, there is still a lot of work in the Sumy region: 10 artificial structures have been destroyed. On two artificial structures, traffic has already been resumed thanks to the efforts of the road builders and close cooperation with the military.
As Ukrinform reported, on August 2, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine announced that border communities in the Chernihiv and Sumy regions continue to be shelled from the territory of Russia.
