Road transport initiatives include the construction of motorways and expressways including feeder roads, construction of intelligent transport systems, increasing road transport safety and first-class road construction and modernisation. Road infrastructure is of great importance for economic growth, labor mobility and competitiveness within the international distribution of transport work.
The vision of a "modern, quality, safe and effective transport infrastructure", within the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) corridors in particular, was defined in the Strategic Plan for Transport Infrastructure Development. Modernising and developing road infrastructure is an extensive, financially and technically difficult process. The ability to use EU funds in Slovakia is crucial.
EU funds along with mandatory national co-financing enabled nearly 200 km of motorways and expressways to have been built by 2015. Slovakia was able to modernise or build nearly 700 kilometers of first class roads.
To modernise key road infrastructure (motorways, expressways, first-class roads) €1,914,424,270 was allocated from the Operational Programme Integrated Infrastructure, which can be drawn until 2023.
Road infrastructure defined in OPII is covered by two Priority Axes:
