Operational Programme Integrated Infrastructure (OPII) is a programming document produced by the Slovak Republic to draw aid from the European Union in the transport sector and Information Technology for the period 2014-2020 (Cohesion Fund, European Regional Development Fund). Its global objective is to support sustainable mobility, economic growth, job creation and improving the business environment through progress in transport infrastructure, public passenger transport and development of an information society.

Implementation of OPII projects will contribute to making the country, its different regions and interconnection of them more accessible, reducing regional disparities and increasing the Slovak Republic’s competitiveness.

OPII was approved by the European Commission on 28 October 2014. The Strategic Development Plan For Transport Infrastructure in the Slovak Republic to 2020 was approved by the Government on 26 June 2014 and is the background document of the Slovak Republic for the development of OPII. Other documents and their strategies of setting priorities and transport policy objectives were taken into account in creating the OPII.

Areas of support within OPII:

  • Modernisation and development of railway infrastructure,
  • Modernisation and development of road infrastructure,
  • Modernisation and development of water transport,
  • Development of public passenger transport,
  • Building an information society.
OPII’s total budget is € 4,666,641,621 (including national co-financing) for the 2014-2020 period. The Ministry of Transport and Construction appropriates EU funds and funds from the national budget for major transport projects such as construction of motorways and expressways, upgrading of first class roads, modernisation of railways, purchasing of new trains and ecofriendly public transport vehicles or urban integrated transport systems, but also for projects in the field of water transport, and informatisation of society.
