Odessa, Ukraine (PortSEurope) September 7, 2019 – Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority (USPA) is working with the Odessa City Council on a project to develop an alternative entrance to the Odessa port.
USPA will also cooperate with Euroterminal LLC which operates a dry port in Odessa with the associated road connections.
The need for an alternative road and entry/exit to the port is due to several factors. Firstly, it will remove trucks using residential streets. In addition, the implementation of this project will eliminate existing violations of the anti-monopoly legislation to ensure unhindered access to the port for vehicles, as evidenced by two decisions of the Anti-monopoly Committee of Ukraine regarding Euroterminal and the Odessa City Council. Also this problem was raised.in July during a meeting on the development of seaports led by President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky in Odessa.
“Over the past two months, as part of the working group, we have analyzed in detail various projects for the construction of an alternative road, taking into account all the requirements of the specialists of the city council. Now it is necessary to take the next step – make a decision on the allocation of land to begin work on project documentation. Therefore, at the next session, September 18, we initiate the consideration of this issue by deputies. I hope that they will make a positive decision, because the living conditions of citizens and the work of thousands of enterprises across Ukraine that transship their goods through the Odessa port depend on it”, ” said head of the Odessa division of USPA Igor Tkachuk.
