The State Automobile Roads Agency, also known as Ukravtodor, intends to check quality of road works and reveal defects of these works twice a year, Ukravtodor Head Slawomir Nowak has said.
“Ukravtodor and personally I pay special attention to the quality of works. We have drawn up a new concept for quality supervision, provided for financing, carried out the check for 2016 and revealed defects. Our approach is that we will monitor the implementation of the works for the previous year every year early March and late June and determine what contractors are to liquidate these defects,” he said at a government meeting in Kyiv on August 18.
He said that the first check allowed removing many defects on roads.
