“Billion-dollar cut”: in the estimate for the reconstruction of the Degtyarovsky overpass, prices are inflated by 2-3 times

During the tender, the contractor did not disclose the price estimate for construction materials that turned out to be much higher than market prices.

The total cost of reconstruction of the overpass near the Shulyavskaya metro station in Kyiv amounted to 920 million hryvnia. The contractor, Rostdorstroy LLC, received more than a third of this amount for his work. But later it turned out that the prices for building materials in the estimate were much higher than the market ones.

The website “Our Money” writes about this, calling the fraudulent scheme a “billion-dollar cut.”

Odessa contractor Rostdorstroy LLC received a contract for the reconstruction of the Kyiv overpass at the intersection of Degtyarevskaya and Alexandra Dovzhenko streets on June 1, 2023. The work was carried out and the bridge was opened for traffic in December. But during the tender, the project estimate was not made public in the Prozorro system, so already in 2024, the Anti-Corruption Center submitted a request to disclose information on prices for used construction materials.

As it turned out, some building materials were purchased at prices twice and even three times higher than the Ukrainian average. Namely:

  • polyurethane resin Sika Icosit KC 340/45 at 2,841 UAH/kg – 2.5 times more expensive than in Poland, rarely used in Ukraine, 155 million UAH spent;< /li>
  • asphalt at 7,195 UAH/t – 20% more expensive than the market price in Ukraine, 115 million UAH spent;
  • reinforcing steel at 63,435 UAH/t – 42% more expensive, spent 29 million UAH;
  • sand for 585 UAH/cubic. m – 27% more expensive, 13 million UAH spent;
  • crushed stone-sand mixture C5 at 1088 UAH/cub. m – 43% more expensive, 7 million UAH spent.

According to the E-Data system, Kyivavtodor paid the contractor UAH 313 million for the work.
