RIGA - Transport Minister Aivis Ronis hopes that a decision on restoration of the Highway Fund will be taken already by the end of this year.

In an interview with the LNT television this morning, Ronis said that initially the contributions to the fund would not be very large. Currently the priority is to renew the Highway Fund's operations.

Most Saeima members support restoration of the Highway Fund, added Ronis.

The Highway Fund, a government institution responsible for renovation and maintenance of roads and highways in Latvia, was liquidated in 2003.
