IMPROVING TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE:  

CHALLENGES BEFORE EURO 2012 


Abstract 

The paper presents the state of transport infrastructure in Poland in the perspective of near Euro 2012 championships. The bad condition of the road network is considered to be mainly a result of institutional chaos and instability of rules concerning the system of financing motorway building. Efficient development of the transport system also stems from inconsistencies with regulations concerning natural environment protection. An emphasis has been placed on the need to amend the existing law by adjusting it to the EU directives and patterns of infrastructure provision in other countries, e.g. public-private partnership.
